    News: How LA Watch Thieves were caught

    Link to news article:

    The Watch Thieves Who Picked L.A. Clean - The Daily Beast

    "The group couldn’t have known this heist would be their last—and there’s no way they would have wanted it to be. By Watchmen standards, the take that day was terrible: a mere $67,000 worth of TAG Heuers. In retrospect, they never should have bothered."

    "The group couldn’t have known this heist would be their last—and there’s no way they would have wanted it to be. By Watchmen standards, the take that day was terrible: a mere $67,000 retail of TAG Heuers worth around $6,000 as soon as they walked out. In retrospect, they never should have bothered."

    There. Fixed it

    Very interesting read.

    I do wonder tho, to a point...ok, the *retail* value was $6M. But that's not $6M in cash. Seems like it would take a while to liquidate that many high-value pieces.

    Very interesting stuff. I wonder what the street value of a stolen watch is and how they would sell so many.

    Interesting story but a disappointing article. There was pages of buildup there with no resolution. The article goes on and on and then offers no details or story about their capture.

    Glad they got caught though. And glad they don't seem to have hurt anyone.
