Jewelry Snatchers Use Group Tactics To Steal Gold Necklace

Posted: Updated:

PLANTATION, FL- Surveillance video from a 7-11 in Plantation, Florida revealed a group of young men preying on a customer.

One member of the group stole a gold chain necklace right off the victim's neck, while his buddy held the door open.

Then the door-man and the rest of the thief's pals intimidated the man, preventing him from pursing his thief any further.

“They were in the store before I walked in because I was sitting outside for about five minutes before I walked in, so they were in the store for a while,” said customer Artic Wilcox.

Minutes after Wilcox entered the store, one of the men snatched a gold chain that was a birthday gift given to him last year from his neck.

“I just felt something hit me on the back of my neck and when I turned around a guy had snatched my gold and ran out the door. He had five other guys with him, so I couldn’t really do anything but let him go,” Wilcox said.

The five guys waited outside the 711 after the gold chain was snatched to make sure Wilcox did not retaliate.

“When I turned around and saw the guy running to the door I could have stopped him, but I could see that he had other friends with him. So there wasn’t any need to get hurt. It shouldn’t happen…it shouldn’t happen.”
