LONGVIEW, Wash. -- A diamond thief was still on the loose Wednesday morning and Longview police hoped surveillance photos would help them find the suspect.

The man walked into Diamond Showcase in Longview Friday afternoon, talked to a clerk for a while, and snatched some diamonds from a display, police said.

The man then ran out. An employee chased him, but he got away.

Anyone recognizing the man in the photo was asked to call 911.
