Kmart jewelry robbery nets suspect $20,000 in bling

NEW PORT RICHEY — Police are searching for a man whom they believe stole nearly $20,000 worth of jewelry from a Kmart on Tuesday.

The suspect grabbed an entire spinning jewelry kiosk from the store at 5725 U.S. 19 and ran out the front doors. Authorities say the thief is Keith Jason Stewart Jr., 21, whose last known address was 4713 Simcoe St. in Palm Harbor. A warrant has been issued for his arrest on the charge of grand theft.

The New Port Richey Police Department reported that Stewart fled the store in his 1997 white Chevrolet truck. The truck was found, but Stewart is still at large. Authorities say Stewart is also a suspect in similar cases in Pasco and Pinellas counties.

Authorities urge anyone who knows Stewart's whereabouts to call New Port Richey police dispatch at (727) 841-4550.
