He monitors the store, figuring out when only one employee is at the boutique and then distracts them by asking lots of questions and moving from one piece of jewelry to the next. While alone, the suspect snatched the jewels from the counter and left the shop.Khachwajian advised local jewelers to ensure from now on that more than one person is manning their shop.
