    Default robbery in la dolcerie restaurant in piantini

    last saturday a robbery was reported in la dolcerie restaurant in SD. the victim had their watch stolen by an armed attacker.
    the attack was first reported via twitter by a dominican deputado:
    https://noticiassin.com/diputado-jea...e-la-dolcerie/

    the victim is russian-american DJ, apparently. originally the politician mentioned that the stolen watch was over 150k dollar richard mille piece but recent reports give the value at 850k. what the heck. nice pay off for 5 minutes of "work" either way.

    An $850,000 dollar watch?

    Even if pesos that's a spendy timepiece...

    as a simpleton i never heard of this brand before but apparently they can get a lot more expensive than that. still, looks like there are sophisticated and cultured folks in SD who are aware of the value of such piece and willing to go extraordinary lengths in order to personally appreciate it.

    i bet the thief knew exactly the value of the watch. there is a venezuelan gang in SD that was reported few times before. they specifically target pricey watches.

    As is my plastic Armitron. But, I suspect it tells better time than the stolen watch.

    I never understood the need for such things.
