Walter Douglas, Floyd Davis arrested for high-end robberies
Two men allegedly responsible for a series of high-end smash-and-grab robberies in the D.C. area are now behind bars.
Authorities arrested Walter Douglas, 33, and Floyd Davis, 43, on multiple charges. Authorities say Douglas may be connected to at least 14 robberies.
The rash of smash-and-grab crimes began in December of last year and spanned through April. Most happened during the day and all took place while the stores were open for business.
Among those hit: Micheal Kors, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales - all at Tysons - Tourneau at Pentagon City Mall and Belle View Jewelers.
Alexa Kastantin turned out to be just one victim in the brazen crime spree that rocked the D.C. metro area.
“I heard, ‘Don’t move, don’t look, don’t talk.’ I leaned back against the wall, put my hands together, and started praying,” Kastantin says. “What I kept saying is ‘dear God please no guns. No guns God please,’” Kastantin says.
No guns were used in any of the robberies.
Using store surveillance videos, cellular records and nailing down cellphone tower locations and tracking down the waiting vehicles used in the robberies helped break the case.
In one robbery at the Pentagon City Mall in March, the suspects allegedly stole about $600,000-worth of Rolex watches from a Tourneau store. In a robbery in late April, the suspects allegedly stole more than $100,000-worth of goods from a Cartier store.
