MIAMI - Miami-Dade police are seeking the public's help in locating a woman they say may have been involved in the theft of more than $500,000 worth of jewelry. 

Investigators said that on Tuesday, July 26, 2022, the victim, who is a jewelry vendor, attended an event at a hotel located at 400 SE 2nd Avenue.

When the event ended, police said the victim traveled to a shopping center located on the 7700 block of West Flagler Street.
