Naperville police are searching for a man who scammed several jewelry stores. Police say he got away with $25,000 worth of diamonds.

The man reportedly used a fraudulent debit card to buy a loose diamond at three separate stores. Investigators say the offender had an accomplice who pretended to verify the bogus card when clerks called for approval.

Police do have surveillance video of the man but have not released it yet.
