Thieves Take Nearly $200K Worth of Merchandise From Houston Galleria Store

By  | 

Two robbers entered the Tag Heuer store in the Houston Galleria Mall at 2:30 a.m. on Monday, February 13th, where they managed to steal nearly $200,000 worth of watches. Police have been unable to track down the thieves, so they released a few photos taken before the pair entered the store and while they were destroying the store’s property, hoping that someone will come forward with information. Unfortunately, it will be rather difficult to make out who the suspects are since they’re covered from head to toe in dark clothes and face masks. One wore dark blue and white gloves, while the other one donned all black.

The robbers smashed through glass doors and cases to get to the merchandise. KHOU reports that they caused over $17,000 in damage before stealing $190,000 worth of luxury watches. (Tag Heuer is known for their nice watches ranging in price from around $1500 to $10,000.) After acquiring their stash of watches, the pair fled the 5000 block of Westheimer Rd.

If you have any information, ABC 13 writes, “Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for any information leading to the charging and/or arrest of the suspects in this case. Information may be reported by calling 713-222-TIPS (8477) or submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org.” The photos can be found here.
