On Monday, at East Rand Mall, Jade Jewelers were attacked by pirates for a special watch brands brand.
The South African Police Service (SAPS) says armed robbers go to the store to become a consumer looking for a specific watch.
"The shop assistant goes to the display cabinets, removes the suspect, breaks the glass cabinet, and only pulls the TAG Heuer watches, and then escapes," said police spokesman Captain Pearell Staad.

According to Van Staad, a nearby police officer, after listening to members of the public, persecuted the suspects.
"The SAPS member stopped shooting in the vehicle's tire, but the suspects fled, and nobody was hurt," van Staad said.
The actual value of stolen watches has not been determined yet. And how many people have been accepted.
