    $600K Smash and Grab Robbery at Mall

    A group of robbers got away with $609,000 worth of Rolex watches in a smash and grab robbery at Pentagon City, VA mall this morning.

    According to police, four men wearing ski masks and gloves entered the Tourneau watch store, near the main S. Hayes Street entrance to the mall, around 10:30 a.m. The men smashed the front of a display case with a hammer, then grabbed 23 Rolex watches valued at $609,000, police said.

    The men then fled, hopped in a getaway vehicle parked in front of the mall with an accomplice in the driver’s seat, and took off. The car was described as a charcoal gray, four-door sedan.

    The entire robbery took less than 30 seconds, according to police.

    No customers or employees were on the “floor” of the store at the time of the robbery. One employee who was cleaning the outside of the store yelled for someone to call police during the robbery. Five employees were in the back of the store, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.

    The crime is similar to another smash and grab robbery at the mall last month — during which 27 rings worth approximately $128,000 were stolen — but police so far have not been able to determine a definitive connection.
    Regards,

    This is why display cases should be made of shatter resistant material...

    Wow, apparently they picked the good Rolexes to steal too. $609k from just 23 watches averages ~ $26,500 per watch.
