OKC police looking for men who stole jewelry worth as much as a house

OKLAHOMA CITY – Two men are caught on camera making off with two watches worth the price of a home.

Oklahoma City police released surveillance video of two men seen ripping off a jewelry store at Penn Square Mall.

The two crooks made off with two Rolex watches.

Combined those watches are valued at more than 100 thousand dollars.

The pair came into the BC Clark Jewelry store pretending to be customers.

“They went to the counter and asked to look at a specific watch and were able to grab two of them and took off running out of the store,” said Oklahoma City police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow.

The second the thieves snatched the watches, they took off running.

An armed security officer tried to catch them, but the suspects escaped in the parking lot.

“It was a bold move on their part. It’s the middle of the day. There’s an armed security guard inside this business. So it’s very bold to snatch the watches and run out of the business,” said Wardlow.

Police say the suspects drove away from Penn Square Mall in a silver Chevy Cruz.
