When a now suspended Pembroke Pines police officer goes on trial for swiping an $800 watch from a burglarized jewelry store, he'll have to refute surveillance video.

The cameras that captured the smash and grab on February 5th at the Jared, the Galleria of Jewelry on Pines Boulevard, also showed a watch on the floor.

Investigators say it disappeared after Kevin Burgs picked up his rifle.


A Movado watch was recovered from Burgs' patrol car.

He is currently suspended without pay and is awaiting trial for grand theft charges.

Investigators say the original crooks, who broke in through the ceiling, got away with about $75,000 of merchandise.
