Police arrested a man who snatched the chain of a Miami tourist at gunpoint, then a short time later brazenly returned to tell the victim the jewelry was fake.

According to detectives, the suspect, Daniel Sion Palmer, 26, was being held without bail after being charged with armed robbery, fleeing and eluding, reckless driving and possession of a suspended license

The robbery took place near 11th Street and Ocean Drive in the South Beach section of Miami around 3 a.m. Palmer allegedly held the New York man at gunpoint and robbed his gold his chain and fled.

However, Palmer wasn’t happy with the quality of the stolen jewelry, and so he decided to approach the victim brazenly, just one block away to voice his dissatisfaction over the fake jewelry.

“The move was stupid because we were able to apprehend the suspect,” Det. Ernesto Rodriguez said.

The victim alerted police and identified Palmer, who at this point was driving in a Mercedes. Officers said he took off speeding down Collins Avenue, disregarding the cop cars in pursuit. Police managed to stop and arrest him on MacArthur Causeway.

Boston resident Erika Allgaier said she wouldn’t think twice about wearing her jewelry in Miami. “When I’m here I feel safe, but nobody should get threatened by someone for their jewelry on a busy area,” Allgaier said.
