Watch out!

Cops arrested a 17-year-old girl in Kings Plaza on May 9 after she swiped a pricey watch from a mall jeweler, police alleged.

The victim said that Melissa Holland stopped by the victim’s booth inside the Flatbush Avenue mall at 2:19 p.m. and asked to see the $1,000 watch.

When the employee handed it over, Holland allegedly stepped away from the booth with the watch, claiming that she wanted to give it to the person she was speaking to on her cell phone.

Several employees demanded that Holland return the watch. The teen reportedly toyed with the idea of giving the watch back, but cops were called before it was returned.

The police ultimately charged her with grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.
