Thieves targeted a popular Gem Show vendor earlier this month.

Tucson’s Gem and Mineral Show draws many visitors, but sadly at least one person took advantage of a vendor and stole thousands of dollars worth of gems and minerals.

The robbery occurred on Saturday, February 3rd between 1:30 a.m. and 5 a.m. at Norcross – Madagascar, a licensed show vendor. According to the store manager, the thief ran off with large petrified wood slices, rough gemstones, tools and other smaller items valued at approximately $10,000. The thief was able to break a lock to a storage area where the merchandise was being stored.

The manager filed a report with Tucson police and was offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
