California Thieves Bypass Luxury Cars, Opt for Watches

November 13, 2013

Police say burglars smashed a plate glass window at a San Diego County luxury car dealership, but it wasn’t the Rolls-Royces, Bentleys or Lamborghinis they were interested in. They walked out with watches worth between $20,000 and $60,000 apiece.

U-T San Diego reports the break-in at the Symbolic Motor Car Company showroom in La Jolla was reported about 2:50 a.m. Monday.

Owner Marc Chase says it appears the thieves used a crowbar or baseball bat to break in, sending glass flying to the back of the showroom.

They then tipped over and smashed a glass case containing four Breitling for Bentley watches. Chase says the timepieces were on consignment.

None of the cars were damaged in the break-in.
