TULSA, Okla. -

A Tulsa man is in jail accused of stealing more than $150,000 in jewelry from stores in several different cities, including a $70,000 bracelet from Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Detectives said the same person, Jason Gilmore, is also a suspect in a recent robbery in Jenks.

Detectives said Jason Gilmore steals to support his lifestyle. They said he steals thousands of dollars’ worth of jewelry and other items, then sells it or pawns it and steals more.

Tulsa Police Riverside Street Crimes detectives searched Gilmore's home this week and found thousands of dollars’ worth of stolen merchandise. That included a stolen $28,000 wedding ring and $70,000 bracelet, stolen from a store in Fayetteville.

Detectives said Gilmore's wife was wearing the bracelet.

"I was helping her with the cuffs, just making sure she was comfortable while I was talking to her and I noticed it on her wrist,” said Detective Mike Smith, with the Tulsa Police Riverside Street Crimes Unit.

Detective Smith said the investigation started when two people stole $1,500 worth of items from a Tulsa store in October.
