VIDEO: Man swipes $5,100 watch from high-end Galleria jewelry store, police say


HOUSTON – Police are searching for a man who swiped a $5,100 watch from a high-end Galleria jewelry store in mid-April.

Houston police say the man came into the Bailey, Banks & Biddle store in the 5100 block of West Alabama on April 18 and asked to see a gold Logines Conquest watch. 

After saying he wanted to buy the watch, he walked to the register and handed a card with a woman’s name on it, police say. The employee told the man she could not accept the card, so the man pulled out a knife, cut the tag off and walked out of the store without paying for the watch, according to police.

The man is described by police as 40 to 50 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, and weighing 190 to 210 pounds, with hazel eyes. 

If you have any information, contact Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
