A self-described record producer reportedly ripped off a really nice watch while browsing at a local jewelry shop this weekend.

On Saturday at about 1:45 p.m., the "record producer" walked into the shop, located on the 200 block of Grant Street, and asked the saleswoman to look at a few rings that he planned on buying for his fiancee.

After looking at rings, the suspect decided he wanted to see watches, too.

But the watches she showed him apparently weren't flashy enough, as the suspect noted he needed a little more "bling."

At that point, the saleswoman handed him a men's bezel and platinum watch with a diamond face. The record producer casually clasped the watch on his wrist, looked in the mirror, then walked out of the store.

Police did not have a description of the suspect, nor are they eagerly awaiting his next album.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
