Several weeks ago investigators say three men walked into the Macy’s at Firewheel Town Center in Garland.

They grabbed displays of watches on the counter breaking the chains and then they took off.

Police say it took just 13 seconds and the bold thieves had snatched 80 watches worth $19,000.

“It happened so fast that it takes a second or two for the employees to process what happened,” says Joe Harn with Garland Police, as he issues a warning to shoppers. “Some people may be Christmas shopping they walk out the door somebody grabs their purse or merchandise and takes off running.”
