The officers entered the department store and saw a man fitting the description. The man looked back, saw the officers and began running away.
One officer chased the man and the other went the other direction and was able to tackle and handcuff the man. The suspect was taken to the loss prevention office and the officers were told there was another man with the suspect, but he had left the store.
The clerks at the store told police they saw the second man in the store again. The officers confronted the man on the escalator and he was handcuffed after a brief struggle.
The duo had used forged travelers' checks to buy jewelry, including a gold ring and bracelet. When contacted by the travelers' check company, the company reported their delivery trucks had been broken into and a total of $191,000 worth of travelers' checks had been stolen.

A 40-year-old Norcross woman told police she was at a Norcross hotel when a 41-year-old Atlanta woman "willfully, wantonly, maliciously and without provocation" struck her on the upper right hand side of her forehead with an iron.
The complainant said she arrived at the hotel with a friend and upon entering her room, the other woman began yelling and screaming and swung the in-room iron by its cord, and struck the first woman in the head.
Gwinnett County Emergency Medical Personnel responded and rendered emergency medical care to the woman who was hit and she was transported to the hospital.
The second woman was seen leaving the hotel on foot and an officer confronted her on the road. Upon confirming that she was the suspect, she was arrested for aggravated assault and transported to jail.
A 20-year-old Loganville man was stopped at a license check in Snellville. The officer asked the driver for his license and proof of insurance.
While the driver was searching for the items, the officer could detect a moderate odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the inside of the vehicle. When asked how much he had had to drink that night, the driver said only one beer. The driver then said he was only 20.
The officer asked the driver if he would submit to field sobriety evaluations so the officer could determine if he was safe to drive the rest of his way home. The 20-year-old agreed and pulled to the side of the road.
During the first part, the man said he could not perform the one leg stand of the nine-step walk and turn because of a recent ankle injury. When asked to perform the alphabet, the subject -- who said he was in college -- told the officer he did not know the alphabet that well.
The man was arrested for DUI under age 21 and transported to jail.

The alarm company called the store location to check the alarm. A manager came to the store but could not tell what was missing.
