JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police are searching for three people who stole several thousand dollars' worth of jewelry from Sissy's Log Cabin.

The theft was reported around 1:14 p.m. Thursday.

According to Jonesboro police, the thieves stole $36,000 worth of earrings from the high-end store, located at 2900 Parkwood Road.

JPD released surveillance video of a man and woman who are seen running from the main desk out a door. The female is believed to have taken the jewelry.

Investigators say one person remained in the car while the two suspects came into the store.
