Kissimmee (US): A Florida thief with a
peculiar penchant for Rolex watches faces up to 25 years in
prison.
Leonardo Perez has pleaded guilty to charges he stole
eight gold Rolex Presidential edition watches, each worth USD
50,000, over four months in 2007. The crime spree began just
after Perez finished a 17-year sentence for stealing Rolexes
in South Florida.

The 36-year-old Miami native is so loyal he even has the
Rolex logo tattooed on a forearm, according to the Orlando
Sentinel.
He primarily found victims out shopping, followed them
home and robbed them at gunpoint, the newspaper said.
