Caught on camera: Suspect steals $8K worth of items from Milwaukee jewelry store

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Police are searching for a suspect who was caught on camera burglarizing a Milwaukee jewelry shop early Sunday morning.

The burglary happened at Oro Imports on the south side of Milwaukee. 

The store owner says the suspect stole silver jewelry items and perfume before fleeing the scene.

Surveillance footage shows the suspect kick in the glass door and head directly to the cash register.

The owner, Christina Montalvo, says the video also shows the suspect wearing only one glove. She's disappointed police could not find any fingerprints.

"I'm frustrated by the police because I wanted them to take fingerprints, but they said they couldn't see any on the glass, actual fingerprints, so I'm frustrated about that."

She says the thief took off with about $8,000 worth of items.
