A man in a burqa-like garment stole $800,000 in jewelry and watches from a Piaget store in the Hudson Yards neighborhood of Manhattan.

The theft took place just before 4 p.m. Sunday, the New York Post reports.

Police say the man asked to see a necklace. As the employee showed him the piece, he realized the customer was holding a watch.

Upon being questioned about the timepiece, the suspicious man sprayed toward the employee with a spray bottle.

The thief then made off with the necklace and two watches. The total value of the merchandise was $800,600, the Post reports.

Police have had trouble identifying the culprit “because the head covering — typically worn by women in some Muslim cultures — concealed most of the man’s face,” according to the Post.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
