Distraction Theft

Fort Smith, AK – On January 7, 2017 at approximately 12:30 p.m., a male and female couple entered a retail jewelry store. They said they wanted to buy a watch.

After the sales associate presented them with a high-end watch, the male subject displayed a large bundle of cash and counted the money to distract the sales associate.
