By  | 

BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) -- Police are looking for a man they say stole two rings worth nearly $25,000 from a woman after grabbing her dog. Brunswick police Detective William Collins said a woman was walking her Shih Tzu on Monday when a man picked up the dog and demanded the rings if she wanted the dog back.

Police said the victim gave up her rings, and that the suspect fled on foot after returning the dog. The rings were a 6.57-carat sapphire with diamonds valued at $18,500 and a .96-carat diamond solitaire valued at $5,000.

The suspect was described as a professional-looking, clean-shaven white man in his late 20s or early 30s.
