Temptation for employees and customers alike lies beneath the glass countertops at any jewelry store. Overcoming that temptation is part of the job for most jewelry store employees, but a Zales employee at the Shops at Wiregrass saw diamonds in his eyes, and pockets, that ultimately landed him in jail for theft.

According to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO), 25-year-old Emanuel Rivera has been charged with stealing more than $23,000 in jewelry during his employment at the Wiregrass Zales location. He also has been charged with attempting to sell the stolen jewelry to secondary dealers, or pawn shops, to which he provided false identification.
