Police nabbed a Valentine’s Day jewelry thief at Sears Thursday afternoon after a store security employee at the Rock Hill store watched the man conceal three sterling silver bracelets in his pocket and leave without paying, according to a Rock Hill police report.
The 22-year-old Rock Hill man told police he “was trying to get a Valentine’s Day gift for some small girls,” according to the report.
Officers arrested the thief and returned the bracelets to the store.
The man has been charged with shoplifting, first offense, the report states.
