A group of men robbed the Cartier jewelry and watch store in Chevy Chase this morning, leading police on a high-speed chase into D.C.
The robbery occurred at about 11:10 a.m. when the men were seen leaving the store (5471 Wisconsin Ave.), on a main stretch of Chevy Chase’s high-end shopping district. According to police scanner traffic, the men stole 12 watches worth around $150,000.
The robbers, in a black Dodge Charger, went north on Wisconsin Avenue before maneuvering east to Connecticut Avenue. One car was hit in the chase, according to scanner traffic, before the car turned south on Connecticut and entered D.C.
A Montgomery County Police officer chased the robbers into the District.
