Police are looking for a man who was caught on video breaking into a jewelry store in Glendale last month.

The smash-and-grab incident happened around 4 p.m. on January 19 at the business on the 100 block of North Brand Boulevard.

The man approached the store carrying a white bag and a black suitcase, Glendale police said in a news release.

He then used a chain and padlock to lock the front door of the business and smashed the windows with a metal socket.

He allegedly grabbed several Rolex watches and ran to a black van which he “staged” nearby and drove off.

He is described as a white or Hispanic male between the ages of 25 and 35, about 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall with an average build.

He wore black clothes, a black mask, black shoes and a black Dodgers cap.

The suspect’s vehicle was initially described as a 1999 Dodge Caravan, but police later said the vehicle was stolen and has since been returned to its owner.

Anyone with information can call the Glendale Police Department at 818-548-4911. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call the LA Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
