Man Steals $86,000 Rolex From Scottsdale Jewelry Store -- Which is Way Smarter Than Paying for One

If you happen to know the man pictured to the right, and he's wearing a shiny new Rolex, call the cops -- it's stolen, and it costs a hell of a lot of money.

According to the Scottsdale Police Department, the man to the right stole an $86,000 Rolex from the Ben Bridge Jewelers store in the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall earlier this month.

The suspect walked into the store and asked an employee to remove the watch from its case so he could see it. When the employee handed the watch to the suspect, he grabbed it and ran out of the store.

Not the most complex plan, but it worked -- the suspect got away and remains on the loose.

According to police, nobody saw which direction the suspect ran, and no vehicle was seen.

The suspect is described as a black male in his mid-20s, about 5-foot-9, and 160 pounds.

The Rolex is a Presidential Platinum Oyster Watch with a diamond encrusted bezel. The value of the watch is $86,000 -- a price nobody should ever pay for a stupid watch.

Anyone with information about the theft is encouraged to call the Scottsdale Police Department or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
