Stamford police catch man in wheelchair who robbed jewelry store

STAMFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Police in Stamford said they have tracked down the man who was in a wheelchair while he was caught on camera robbing a jewelry store.

The suspect ended up trying on a $27,000 Rolex watch before leaving the store with it, and knocked down a security guard in the process.

Police said they believe the suspect was wearing a wireless phone headset so his accomplices in a getaway car in a parking garage could hear everything going on inside, when the incident happened earlier in the summer.
