Baltimore County police are continuing the search for two men wanted in the theft of $49,000 in jewelry from the Zales store at Towson Town Center.

Police said the men entered the store between 4:30 and 5:10 p.m. Aug. 2 and took jewelry from displays while an employee was helping customers.

The first suspect is described as a black male, approximately 40 to 50 years old, 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, short black hair, brown eyes and a beard that was light black in color. He wore a white dress shirt, gray pants, and black shoes. The other suspect is described as a black male, 45 to 50 years old, 5-foot-8, 180 pounds, black short hair, brown eyes, and a black in color beard. He was wearing a white T-shirt, gray shorts, black hat and black shoes.

The county's organized retail crimes team is investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-887-2190 or 410-307-2020, or Metro Crimes Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.

In July, Baltimore County investigators arrested and charged a man and a woman involved in a string of jewelry store thefts around the region and several states. In those instances, police said, one person would distract store clerks and another would grab jewelry from unlocked display cases.
