Sydney police investigating after man allegedly stole five-carat diamond”

The Cerrone flagship store in Sydney, Australia, had just opened for business when a neatly presented man entered through the sliding glass doors.

In CCTV footage released by NSW Police on Friday, the man is shown wearing a grey jumper, dark-coloured trousers, black Nike sneakers and carrying a shoulder bag.

Police are hunting a thief who stole a $300,000 five-carat diamond from a luxury Sydney CBD jewellery store.

"He got the opportunity unfortunately and he swapped the stones and he was quite cool, calm and collected and then left the store telling the staff he would return with a friend to purchase the stone", Ms Kotevski said.

Staff say the man first came into the store on Monday to look at their diamonds.

Store employees contacted police when they noticed the stones had been switched.

'We think he studied the diamond and had a copy made before coming back to the store on Tuesday, ' she said.

Police established a crime scene in the shop, which specialises in high-end designer jewellery, and conducted a forensic examination.

Officers attached to Sydney City Local Area Command are investigating and have released CCTV footage of a man who may be able to assist with inquiries.

The suspect is described as Asian, with a slim build, and short black hair.

That heist followed three which took place in three months in 2000, with one of the robberies netting thieves $2million worth of goods.
