A car stolen from the streets of Watertown ended up being used in a robbery of a Newton jewelry store.

A car was left running on the Union Street on Jan. 12 at about 12:40 p.m., said Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn.

“The motor vehicle was moved from the driveway to in front of the home to make way for a delivery truck,” Lawn said. “The vehicle was left running and when the owner went back 10 minutes later it was gone.”

Later, the dark grey 2010 Toyota Highlander was reportedly used as part of a robbery of a jewelry story at the Chestnut Hill Mall.

According to a WCVB Channel 5 report, two men robbed the Sydney Thomas Jewelry Store, with one robber smashed the glass of a case containing Rolex watches and took some watches.

One suspect was described as a thin, tall black male with no facial hair around 19-years-old who wore a red or orange hooded sweatshirt. He also wore a jacket, jeans and sneakers. The second suspect was described as a black male and around 5-f00t-10, heavier than the first suspect and wore dark clothing and a hooded sweatshirt, according to WCVB.

The vehicle was later abandoned on Hammond Pond Parkway in Newton, Lawn said. Newton Police are investigating the robbery.
