SHOPLIFTER GETS AWAY WITH GRAND THEFT BY THE HAIRS ON HIS CHINNING CHIN CHIN

An unidentified man with a scruffy beard was captured by security cameras stealing 28 boxes of Gillette razor blades from a Weston grocery store. Broward Sheriff's Office detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying him.

On the afternoon of November 26, a thief walked into the Publix at 2465 Glades Circle in Weston, grabbed a shopping basket and made his way to an endcap stocked with razor blades. He grabbed one after another until he had shoved more than two dozen into his pants. Then he briskly walked past the registers and got into the passenger seat of a waiting white Chevrolet Cobalt.


The shoplifter is described as a male in his 30s with a medium complexion and weighing approximately 190 pounds. He had short dark hair and a dark beard. During the theft, he wore a blue polo, dark pants and black shoes.


Anyone with information is asked to contact BSO Det. K. Toro at 954-626-4009 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or browardcrimestoppers.org. Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.


MEDIA NOTE: The surveillance video is on our website, sheriff.org.
