ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The man who police say stole a tray of rings from a local shop that had his identification from earlier in the day, has been arrested for first degree theft.
Back on Wednesday, March 28, police say Spencer Monroe Strong, 20, went into Associated Buyers on NE Stephens just after 4:30 and asked to look at a tray of white gold rings.
When employees brought the tray out, they say Strong took them, fled the store and ran out of sight.
Police searched the area for Strong, but he wasn't located.
Police didn't have a hard time figuring out who he was, since earlier in the day, police say Strong sold a tool kit to the same shop, and provided a Washington ID that identified him.
Police say employees at the shop estimate the value of the rings at several thousand dollars, and there were about 30 rings in the tray.
On Monday, Strong was arrested and charged by police with first degree theft. He remains in the Douglas County Jail on $50,000 bail.
