On December 9th, police officers were notified of a theft from The Jeweler’s Bench, a local jewelry store in Poplar Bluff. Two women had requested jewelry to be shipped for a wedding. As it was being placed into a shipping box, one of the women hid a bag on the counter containing almost $9,700 worth of jewelry. They left a $200 deposit after the box was sealed, left for a bank, and never returned. Suspicious employees later opened the box to find the bag missing. If you know the identity or location of these two women, contact the Poplar Bluff police department immediately at 573 785 5776, or email Officer Woodruff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
