Robbers Target High-End Watches, JSA Cautions

Robbers Target High-End Watches, JSA Cautions

Eight crimes involving high-end watch robberies have been reported so far this year, according to the Jewelers’ Security Alliance.

Since January of 2011, the JSA has received more than 30 reports of similar watch crimes. The reports often indicate violence, with robbers armed with pistols or pepper spray.

The robbers also targeted specific watch models, often leaving other expensive jewelry behind.

“Until all of those responsible have been incarcerated, retailers selling high-end watches should consider reviewing their security programs and possibly take extra steps and precautions to help deter a similar loss at their place of business,” according to a JSA statement.
