Thieves swap $20k diamonds for worthless stones in Canada’s East Coast

Police in Canada’s Prince Edward Island are looking for two people suspected of stealing two diamonds from a jewellery store last Wednesday by replacing the rocks, worth about $20,000, with fake stones.

Investigators believe the couple may be the same who stole a $10,000 diamond from W. Smith and Company Fine Jewellers in Saint John, New Brunswick, earlier this month, Canadian Press reports.

Anyone with information about the incidents or the suspects is asked to contact police.
