DISTRACTION THEFT – CABAZON, CA

On 6/23/16, a sales associate assisted a couple in viewing high-end watches. The couple decided that they wanted to purchase two watches. While the couple and the sales associate were at the counter, the couple asked the sales associate if they could see gift wrapping paper. As the sales associate turned to retrieve the wrapping paper, surveillance footage showed the female subject remove the watch from the box it was placed in. She then returned an empty box to the sales associate. After the sales associate quoted the price of the two watches, the couple claimed they did not have enough money to make a purchase.
