LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Police are searching for suspects who stole $150,000 worth of Rolex watches from a store in the Lexington Convention Center.
Police said the watches were taken from Shelia Bayes Fine Jewelers in The Shops at Lexington Center on Saturday afternoon.
Reports said that store employees said two men used a sledgehammer to break display cases containing the Rolex watches.
Police say the suspects ran out of the convention center and hopped into a getaway van without being caught.
Police said the suspects were able to get away is because the center was busy with foot traffic due to the Boys Sweet 16 basketball tournament.
A similar robbery took place at a Memphis mall in January. In that case, five men were arrested after $537,000 worth of Rolexes was stolen.
