Conn. man to serve time in watch theft


STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) A Stratford man has pleaded guilty to stealing $1 million in watches and now faces time in prison.

38-year-old Gilberto Nieves pleaded guilty Tuesday to under the Alford Doctrine to larceny and conspiracy charges. The plea means he does not agree with all the elements of the government's case, but acknowledges there is enough evidence to convict him.

Nieves managed the watch repair department at Victorinox Swiss Army's Monroe headquarters, where prosecutors say 644 expensive timepieces were stolen between 2010 and 2012, including a gold watch valued at more than $20,000.

Nieves was arrested after police traced some of the watches to a dealer in Texas, who had purchased them on the Internet

Nieves faces six years in prison when he is sentenced Sept. 19.
