Looters grabbed $2.4 million worth of watches after breaking into a Rolex Store in NYC's SoHo Shopping District during George Floyd Protest, according to a New York Post report citing police sources.
A video was posted online showing a huge crowd of people running toward the store, destroying the storefront off Green Street, entering it, and then fleeing shortly afterward.
“The Rolex store is empty,” a police source said. “They stole like $2.4 million in Rolexes.”
However, a spokesperson for the Rolex store said “no watches of any kind were stolen, as there weren’t any on display in the store. There were simply windows broken and some vitrines smashed.”
A couple more high-end Stores around New York City were looted after protests and riots ended. Many Social Media postings have surfaced online showing Chanel, Dior, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Lululemon, Moncler, Balenciaga, Leica, Dolce & Gabbana, and Macy's were among those damaged.
