Female diamond thief arrested
April 04, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

Angela Walker

A woman who stole diamonds by distracting a retailer and replacing them with cubic zirconias at a local jewelry store was arrested Monday, according to San Mateo police.

Angela Walker, a 45-year-old Palo Alto resident, entered Galati Jewelers on 35 E. Fourth Ave. in San Mateo around 2 p.m. Thursday, March 27, purporting to be interested in making a purchase, according to police.

Walker looked at several loose diamonds as well as a solitaire diamond ring she stole when the clerk was distracted. Walker then bumped the clerk’s hand and replaced a loose diamond that fell on the counter with a cubic zirconia, according to police.

Walker gave the clerk her contact information and told her she’d be interested in seeing more jewelry at a later date. The police were informed and lured Walker back to the store Monday, according to police.

Walker returned and attempted to sell a suspected stolen necklace and was also found in possession of a loose cubic zirconia piece that was the same size of a diamond she was scheduled to view, according to police.

Search warrants were executed and Walker was found in possession of jewelry and loose cubic zirconias and arrested for commercial burglary, according to police.

Police are attempting to find any individuals, jewelry stores, pawn shops and consignment store owners who recognize Walker.

Anyone with information should contact San Mateo police at (650) 522-7670 or email nryan@cityofsanmateo.org.
