Deputies Nab Suspected Airport Rolex Thief
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities in South Florida have arrested a man suspected of stealing an expensive Rolex watch at an airport security checkpoint.
The Broward Sheriff's Office says video of the theft led them Friday to a Sunny Isles Beach condominium owned by 37-year-old Igor Ramos. Deputies say Ramos was wearing the $6,500 watch when he opened the door.
Investigators say they used the video images to check against passengers that boarded various flights around the time of the theft Tuesday from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. That turned up a photo of Ramos, who regularly flies between New York and Florida buying and selling cars.
Ramos was jailed Friday on grand theft charges. Court and jail records did not list an attorney for him.
The Rolex is being returned to its owner.
