PROSPECT — Police have their eye out for suspects in two separate thefts, which occurred in town last week.

A lone suspect made off with a wedding ring from Prospect Jewelers after posing as a customer.

When the clerk gave the man the ring, the report stated, the man casually walked to the front door then fled the store.

The ring is valued at $695, the report stated.

Sometime overnight between March 23 and March 24, according to a police report, someone stole a radio, CDs and identification cards from an unlocked, parked car on Colonial Drive.

As of press time, both cases remained under investigation.
