On December 1, 2020, around 11:45 am, Novato Police Officers and Detectives responded to Gold Rush Jewelers, located at 926 Diablo Ave on a report of a theft. Upon arrival at the business, officers contacted the victim. The victim told officers that she met a man at the business to sell a watch to him in a third party transaction. At Gold Rush Jewelers, the man inspected the watch for several moments, tried the watch on, and then fled Gold Rush Jewelers without paying the victim. The Rolex watch stolen from the victim was valued at over $50,000.00.

After stealing the watch, the suspect ran towards the back of Gold Rush Jewelers and possibly fled the scene as a passenger in a newer black colored, Acura SUV with unknown license plate information.

NPD Detectives were able to obtain video surveillance from Gold Rush Jewelers, and a picture of the suspect, which we have provided. The suspect has yet to be identified.

The Novato Police Department is seeking the community’s assistance with identifying the suspect and obtaining any information from witnesses who might have observed this theft.

We would like to thank the community in advance for any assistance provided. We’re hopeful that we can bring closure to this case and return the watch to the rightful owner.
