Moline Police are asking for help in finding two possible jewel thieves. Last Wednesday (5/31) about 9 pm, working together, they stole jewelery from Fred Meyer Jewelers in SouthPark Mall.

The company estimates the loss at 90,000 dollars.

Police say surveillance video from the mall shows two suspects:

- an African American man, bald, and between 45 and 55 years old,

- and a white woman, with blond hair, and 45 to 55 years old. 

They were last seen leaving the area in a newer, dark colored SUV, and police believe they're traveling the midwest committing similar crimes. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Moline Police at 309-524-2140 or Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities at 309-762-9500.
