The police have reported the stealing of a watch worth $14,000 from a high street jeweler in California.
The theft happened in the town of Tulare at Kay Jewelers on 30 August.
The police say that a man walked into the store and asked to see the silver and gold Rolex watch, which an employee duly got out for him.
Once he was handed the watch, the man apparently made a beeline for the door and ran out of the store with the watch still in his hand.
Police have asked that anyone with information about who this thief is should call Detective Burrell at 559-358-6297.
