Investigators are looking for a suspect in an alleged million-dollar diamond fraud.
It is reported that a 61-year-old man had invested in a large quantity of loose, coloured diamonds and made arrangements to sell them. He was directed to meet at a local restaurant and met a man he believes impersonated a doctor. A cheque was given in exchange for the diamonds and the cheque was later found to be fraudulent.
The diamonds had been valued at approximately $1 million.
The suspect is described as 45-50, clean-shaven, approximately 5’10”, short dark hair, wearing what is believed to be an olive-coloured kippah, beige shirt with dark dress pants.
Security camera images are now released.
