He purchased an expensive ring at a jewelry store.

The problem is, Lexington Police say the check a man used to pay for the ring was fake.

Now police are offering a reward, hoping you can help them make an arrest in the case.

"On December 11 of last year, around 4 in the afternoon, a subject entered the GDA Jewelers located on Southland Drive and purchased a piece of jewelry around $3,500," Det. Rob Sarrantonio of Lexington Police said.

Police say the man used a check to pay for the diamond ring.

"Later through the investigation, they found that the check was a fraudulent check," Sarrantonio said. "It was not to any specific amount. The routing number on the check was incorrect. Basically, the suspect probably produced the check himself."

Police are hoping someone will recognize the man from surveillance video.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to an arrest in this case.
