(CBS Seattle / AP) – The man accused of going inside an area Ben Bridge Jewelers store last month and walking out with a $45,000 Rolex has been caught, according to Seattle Police.
Employees of the store said the suspect reeked of fish when he asked to look at the watch on Jan 18. The man allegedly told the workers he smelled “fishy” because he was a wealthy fisherman. Once he had the Rolex on his wrist he said “see ya” and ran off.
A tip led detectives to arrest the man Wednesday night at a tent city in Shoreline. However, d
Detectives are still looking for the watch.
