KUSA - Pictures from a ditched cell phone led police to a suspected jewelry thief in Loveland overnight Friday.
Angel Viera-Hernandez, 23, of Miami, is being held at Larimer County Jail on one misdemeanor and four felony charges for allegedly breaking into the Loveland Jared jewelry store at 2:46 a.m. Saturday and taking 69 high-end watches.

The watches are valued at about $200,000.
Police continue to seek the second suspect. To report information, call (970) 962-2248.
