The Alexandria Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying suspects involved in the larceny of three Rolex watches valued at more than $37,000 from King’s Jewelry.
At 10 a.m. Sept. 6, two suspects entered the business located at 609 King St., pulled out hammers from underneath their jackets and smashed two display cases. An employee heard the commotion and chased the suspects out of the store. No one was injured inside the business.
One suspect is described as a black male in his late teens, 5-foot-8 to 6-0, with a medium build. He was wearing jeans and a blue hooded jacket made by Helly Hansen.
The second suspect is described as a black male in his late teens, also 5-8 to 6-0 with a medium build. He was wearing jeans, a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head. The sweatshirt had an astronaut on the front “possibly made by Billionaire Boys Club,” according to an APD release.
Surveillance video of the larceny and the suspects can be viewed by clicking on the video to the right.
Anyone with information about this case or who recognizes the suspects is asked to call Detective Loren King at 703-746-6689.
Citizens leaving tips may remain anonymous.
A diamond and platinum ring was stolen from King's Jewelry in July. Cedric William Earles was arrested and charged with grand larceny in September in connection with that incident.
