Citizen tip leads to recovery of $45,000 in Rolex watches stolen during downtown burglary

Tips Matter

A citizen tip has led to the recovery of $45,000 in Rolex watches, stolen during a downtown business burglary. On March 10, the owner of Jack Yacoubian Jewelers reported that his business at 114 3rd Avenue South had been broken into. The suspect broke out an alley window; once inside, he pried open a display case and stole four Rolex watches from the case.

A tip led investigators to a juvenile suspect who ultimately confessed to the burglary and surrendered the stolen watches. Burglary and Felony Theft charges have been filed against the juvenile.
