Scam artists steal more jewelry

Scam alert: Look out for this scam, Lacey residents.

These are scam artists in the area pretending to look at jewelry a woman is wearing.

They then begin showing the victim different jewelry to try on and take off both the real and fake jewelry when they are done.

Another trick is they may also ask to see jewelry or kiss a hand bearing a ring, then forcibly remove it.
