STROUDSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Police say a man stopped for drunken driving in northeastern Pennsylvania turned out to be the suspect in an October heist of $20,000 worth of Rolex watches.
The Pocono Record reports (http://bit.ly/16MSprR) that Terence McArdle Jr. was arrested Wednesday in Pocono Township. Police say McArdle walked into a jewelry store at the Crossings outlet center in Tannersville on Oct. 17, smashed a glass cabinet with a hammer and stole two Rolex watches. Police say he then fled the scene with an accomplice.
The alleged heist was caught on surveillance video. McArdle was identified as a suspect by the tattoos on his neck.
Confronted with the video, police say the 32-year-old Tannersville man broke down crying and said, "Take me to jail."
He's jailed on $25,000 bail.
