Philadelphia Jewel Heist Caught On Tape

Feb 1, 2012 6:43pm


Philadelphia police have released a tape they believe shows a man breaking into a woman’s apartment and leaving with jewelry valued at $875,000.

The alleged burglary took place late in the morning on January 18, in a building on central Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square. The suspect can be seen exiting the scene via elevator. Police believe he then left the building the same way he entered, through a construction zone on an adjacent street.

“He knew where he was going and we believe he had prior knowledge. This was not a random act,” said Lt. Pat Dougherty of the Philadelphia Police told WPVI-TV’s Chad Prandelli.

WPVI reports that the haul consisted mostly of gold rings and the assorted jewelry collection of a woman living on the building’s 29th floor.
