HOUSTON - Investigators say a convicted felon left behind a valuable piece of evidence at the scene of a high-dollar heist inside The Galleria.
According to court records obtained by KHOU 11 Investigates, blood found inside the Tag Heuer store following the February smash-and-grab matched the DNA of 43-year-old Jeffery Perkins of Houston.
Surveillance video showed two men smashing a glass door and showcases inside the store during the after-hours burglary.
Investigators say the pair took 42 watches valued at more than $190,000. During the theft, police believe Perkins cut himself.
Court records show Perkins was on probation following a weapons charge at the time of the break-in. Houston police are still looking for the second man involved in the break-in.
