FLASH BURGLARY AT GALLERIA JEWELRY STORE
Crime Stoppers and investigators with the Houston Police department are looking for three men suspected in a flash burglary at a Galleria jewelry store in late December.
On December 22, 2011, three unknown male suspects burglarized a store located inside the Galleria at 5135 W. Alabama.
The suspects reportedly ran into the crowded store at approximately 9:00 pm.
The suspects rapidly shattered the glass of a display case located in the back of the store. After clearing the display case of its contents, the suspects fled the scene on foot.
Investigators believe the suspects exited through a nearby door, and fled in a vehicle waiting outside.
The suspects completed the burglary in less than a minute and reportedly got away with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, including a number of rare Rolex watches.
The suspects are described as three Black males, approximately 20-30 years old.
At the time of the offense the suspects wore dark colored clothing, gloves, masks and hats to conceal their identity.
Additionally, an example photo of one of the rare stolen Rolex’s is attached.
Anyone with information about the identity of the suspects is asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Houston at (713) 222-TIPS (8477).
