A 19-year-old Detroit man is in custody after attempting to steal a $12,000 Cartier watch from Saks Fifth Avenue at the Somerset Collection on Jan.17, according to a Troy Police report. A sales associate told police that Dequan Oshay Williams approached the sales counter just before 4 p.m. and asked to see the watch, offering a fraudulent driver's license as his identification.
