COPS: California locker Crook pawns stolen $60,000 Rolex in Scottsdale, Arizona
SCOTTSDALE, AZ - A California man was caught pawning stolen high-end watches in Scottsdale.
Scottsdale Police report that on February 2, they arrested 59-year-old Robert Gerald Moses at a pawn shop near Scottsdale and Indian School roads.
Cops say Mr. Moses took proceeds of $9,500 for a Rolex watch which was stolen from an Orange County fitness center 3 days prior. Law Enforcement officials say the watch is estimated to be worth more than $66,500. Law Enforcement Officers identified Moses as the suspect.
Cops said Moses is a "lifetime career criminal" with a forty year Criminal History. He was already on release from jail for other health club locker thefts in the San Diego area.
Moses returned to the same store in February with another Rolex, this one worth about $10,000. This time Cops were waiting for him.
Police say it appeared Moses was living out of his car and that the Police found burglary tools inside the vehicle in which Moses was said to reside.
Mr. Moses has now been charged with Trafficking in Stolen Property.
