MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Seven suspects are wanted after $2 million worth of jewelry was stolen from a Macy’s, last month.

On July 12, Macy’s loss prevention reported eight men ran into the store and smashed the jewelry display taking the jewelry. One of those men is now behind bars.

According to an affidavit, a loss prevention officer said he recognized one of the suspects, 33-year-old Quintaurus Harris, as they were leaving the scene.

The prevention officer attempted to stop them, but Harris reportedly threatened to hit him with a hammer.

The officer claimed that Harris was driving a black Infiniti. Some of the suspects were also seen getting into a Lexus.

Harris was identified in a photo lineup and taken into custody.

The officer told investigators advised the total estimate of jewelry stolen was $1.5 million to $2 million and the display case would cost $1,000 to replace.

Harris is facing multiple charges including theft of property, aggravated assault and vandalism.

His bond is set at $225,000.
