BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Biloxi police have identified the man who was caught on surveillance walking out of a jewelry store with a necklace worth thousands of dollars. Police say a warrant for the suspect is underway. Police thank the public for providing tips that led to identifying the suspect after a press release was sent out to the media.

Authorities say the incident happened March 25 at Treasures jewelry store in the Edgewater Mall. According to Biloxi Police, the suspect waited until the employee's attention was elsewhere. That's when he allegedly took a gold necklace worth more than $3,000 and left the store. 

Police say the suspect, who has distinguishable tattoos on both of his forearms, is now facing a felony shoplifting charge.
