The Broward Sheriff’s Office says video of the theft led them to a Sunny Isles Beach condominium owned by 37-year-old Igor Ramos. Deputies say Ramos was wearing the $6,500 watch when he opened the door Friday.

Investigators say they used video images to check against passengers who boarded various flights Tuesday around the time of the theft at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The investigation turned up a photo of Ramos, who regularly flies between New York and Florida buying and selling cars.

Ramos has been jailed on grand theft charges. Court and jail records did not list an attorney for him.

The Rolex is being returned to its owner

Theft is ripe at the TSA checkpoints. If the TSA doesn't steal the valuables of passengers, then other airline passengers steal valuables. It is impossible to keep on eye on all of one's belongings, after they have been loaded into those filthy trays, while the TSA is processing passengers through the security scanning machines. It is only after one successfully completes the scanning that they are allowed to retrieve their belongings. There has to be a better way of dealing with valuables, while the scanning is going on.
