Police looking to identify Rolex thief
BOCA RATON, Fla. (WSVN) -- Surveillance cameras were rolling on a man who, police say, ran off with a Rolex watch from a Boca Raton store on Feb. 1.
The video shows him talking to a sales associate at Mayor's Jewelry Store at the Town Center Mall, while trying on a Rolex. Store employees said the man spoke with a southern accent and had visited the store on at least two occasions. The second time he returned with a large stack of cash in what appeared to be a bank envelope.
He tried on two different watches and when the employees were distracted, he ran out of the store wearing one of the watches. The watch is described as a rose-gold, 18 karat Rolex, with a brown face and roman numerals.
If you have any information on this theft, call Palm Beach Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
