Fla. deputies arrest suspected airport Rolex thief

Feb 17, 2012, 7:23 PM

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – Authorities in South Florida have arrested a man suspected of stealing a Rolex watch at an airport security checkpoint.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office says video of the theft led them to a Sunny Isles Beach condominium owned by 37-year-old Igor Ramos. Deputies say Ramos was wearing the $6,500 watch when he opened the door Friday.

Investigators say they used video images to check against passengers who boarded various flights Tuesday around the time of the theft at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The investigation turned up a photo of Ramos, who regularly flies between New York and Florida buying and selling cars.

Ramos has been jailed on grand theft charges. Court and jail records did not list an attorney for him.

The Rolex is being returned to its owner.
