Woman Wanted in $500,000 Watch Theft in Miami: Police

Police in Miami are searching for a woman wanted for questioning in the theft of nearly $500,000 worth of watches from a man after she met his friend at a club.

Miami Police on Friday released surveillance footage of the woman in the hopes of finding her.

Officials said the woman met the man who was in town from the Netherlands at a club and they went back to the man's condo on Northeast 32nd Street.

The man fell asleep at one point and his friend, who lives there, got home and was upset to see that he had brought a woman home, officials said.

The woman decided she wanted to leave, and after she left, the victim realized his expensive watches were missing. Among the watches stolen was a Rolex worth about $200,000, and three or four other watches worth a total of $300,000, police said.

"We want to find out who this young lady is, we want to question her because we suspect that she was possibly the person who took these watches," Miami Police spokesman Officer Michael Vega said.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
