Tampa, Florida -- Detectives are searching for a man who stole a diamond engagement ring right out of the store. 

The suspect walked into the Helzberg Jewelers at International Plaza on June 17. He began browsing the display cases. He told the clerk that he was about to "pop the question" and was interested in purchasing an engagement ring that cost around $8,000. 

While the clerk was showing him two rings the suspect snatched one of them off the display stick and ran out of the store.
