JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

It's a common scheme: You have two suspects. One distracts the clerk while the other does the stealing.

All you have to do is identify either one of them and it could be worth $500.

Crimestoppers of Jonesboro is offering a $500 reward in a case where over $5,000 in jewelry was stolen from a Jonesboro pawn shop.

Security cameras at the pawn shop captured images of the two suspects.  

The report said the man distracted the clerk while his female accomplice stole the items. 

The report also said they stole a platinum ring with a one-karat princess-cut diamond, a necklace, and another ring.

A $500 reward has been offered for the tip that can lead to the arrest of the pair of suspected jewelry thieves.

If you can make the ID, call in that tip anonymously to Crimestoppers at 935-7687 (STOP), or you can text it to 274637.

In the text message, type 935stop as one word followed by your tip.

You will get a message back with your anonymous tip number. That number is yours to keep for any future reward. 

We are looking for two men we are looking for on Warrant Watch this week.

Rossville Alexander is walking around with 23 warrants. All of them are nonpayment of fines warrants. He has them out of JPD and Brookland PD.

Anthony Allen has one felony warrant to go with his 14 misdemeanor warrants for nonpayment of fines out of JPD.  That felony warrant is from Craighead County.

If you know where police can find Anthony Allen or Rossville Alexander, there could be money in it for you.

Call in that tip to Crimestoppers at 935-STOP or text it.
