An Italian with an eye for fine watches has been sent to jail for attempting to buy two watches from Zegg & Cerlati using stolen credit cards. Last Thursday, the defendant tried to buy two Rolex Dayton watches with a combined value of €26,350, but was told he would have to pay in cash. He left the boutique and returned later with another stolen card and asked to buy a lower-priced Rolex, for €15,500, but the shop assistant alerted the police and the suspect was duly arrested.
He was also found guilty of attempting to buy cigarettes to the value of €21 at the Davidoff shop on avenue des Spélugues, also with a stolen card. His defence counsel asked the court to be lenient, but the request of the prosecution for a penalty of 10 months in jail was heeded by the court after it heard that the miscreant had six previous convictions in his native country.
