The hand may be quicker than the eye, but not the camera lens.

Police have obtained a security camera photo of a suspect who they say used a little sleight-of-hand to walk away with a pocketful of precious diamonds.

The man entered Montelongo's Jewelry on August 13 posing as an eager buyer. While inspecting the diamonds, he managed to switch them with fake gem stones. He then left the store driving a white, older model four-door car.

If you have any information about the theft, call College Station Police.
