WOODBURN, Ore. -- A man was caught on tape burglarizing a Woodburn jewelry store Tuesday morning and police have released the security footage in the hope of finding the suspect.

Police were called just before 6 a.m. to the report of a robbery in the Zales store located in the Woodburn Company Stores outlet mall, according to Sgt. Jason Millican of the Woodburn Police Department.

The security footage shows an unknown suspect breaking through the glass store front with what appears to be a crow bar, Millican explained. The man grabbed a display case full of jewelry and ran back out. The estimated value of the stolen items was $9,000.

The unknown suspect was in the store for no more than 10 seconds, Millican added.

He was described as a white man, 35 to 45 years old, about 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, jacket, white shoes, blue jeans and gloves.

Anyone who recognizes the man in the video or has information about the burglary was asked to call Woodburn police at (503) 982-2345.
