Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police in Lexington are looking for suspects after $150,000 worth of Rolex watches were stolen this past weekend.

The suspects robbed the jewelry store in broad daylight at the Lexington Convention Center.

Police believe the suspects may have gone unnoticed due to the boys Sweet 16 basketball tournament game.

One of the store's employees says the two men walked in without making eye contact and immediately began smashing a case containing their most expensive Rolex watches.

"They may not have stood out to anybody," said Lt. Eddie Hart with the Lexington Police Department. "You're a popular place with a lot of people running around, and a lot of excitement going on."

Officials are checking the store's surveillance video to see if the suspects scoped out the store before stealing the watches.
