JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Police are searching for three suspects reportedly caught on camera stealing a $15,000 worth of chains out of the Avenues Mall on the Southside.

On Friday, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office responded to Elegant Watches, a department store inside the mall, in reference to a theft.

Upon arrival, the store's owner told deputies he discovered the pricey pieces were missing during the store's nightly inventory. 

Security footage shows three people stealing the chains earlier in the day at around 3:20 p.m., according to the police report. Deputies said a suspect was caught on camera unclasping a necklace and sliding it into his left pocket before leaving the mall in an unknown direction.
