Creepy Rolex thief caught on video
Posted on

Thank God I don’t make nakaw. Thank God I also don’t get robbed very often.
Here’s another reason to be extra viligant in airports: watch as this man picks up somebody else’s Rolex from the X-ray bin.
Big Brother is watching everywhere. Only a matter of time before this guy gets caught—and all for what—a watch??

$6500 Rolex Thief Caught on Video at Florida Airport

A surveillance video from the security checkpoint at a Florida airport shows a traveler stealing a $6,500 Rolex watch and a bracelet from a fellow passenger.
Gloria de Regalado, 43, was flying from her South Florida holiday home to Kentucky and momentarily left the luxury timepiece behind in a gray plastic bin after she grabbed her bag and coat and left the screening area.
Police in Broward County are now searching for the brazen thief using the Transportation Security Administration footage captured at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Jan. 18.
The footage shows the man directly behind her, dressed in a white jacket and blue jeans, noticing the items as he gathers his own belongings in Terminal 3 of the airport.
The TSA cameras clearly show the man scooping up the Rolex watch and bracelet before moving away from the security checkpoint and depositing them in his backpack.
About 30 minutes later, Mrs. de Regalado reportedly noticed her watch missing. A check by airport staff found no trace of the watch with the thief long since departed.
When they reviewed the surveillance footage, they noticed that the items were stolen.
Mrs. de Regalado told the Sun-Sentinel that the jewelry was a gift from her husband to celebrate several milestones including the births of her three children, her 40th birthday, and their 10th wedding anniversary. The bracelet was symbol of her Catholic faith.
She said she normally puts such items in a closed purse, but this time, in a rush, put them directly into the bin.
Mrs. de Regalado claimed she made eye contact with the suspect at the airport before she realized the pieces were missing.
“He had an opportunity to do right by himself,” she told the Florida paper. “He knew who I was and he could have redeemed himself, but he didn’t.”
A $1,000 reward has been posted for any information leading to the thief’s arrest.

At the Centennial airport, same thing happened to my friend. he lost his pouch containing his cameras and personal stuff good thing he removed his wallet! sa may xray and casual lang ang pag kuha nang magnanakaw. kaya i always see to it that nobody is standing in line dun sa end (and the airport person sa may xray always reminds me to move it and i always have to remind them na maraming magnanakaw po dito! kaya sorry hindi po puede.) dapat mga airport personnel vigilant too to avoid incidents like this. lalo na early morning flights!

the guy is evil, but the woman was also careless. why would one leave such priceless things unattended? i always have a clear plastic bag and remove everything that must go through checkpoints beforehand and just put it inside my bag or carry-on, and just use them again after the last checkpoint. no hassle, no temptation to thieves.
