TIME-CONSUMING BURGLARY FAIL

Date: May 4, 2017                                                                         PIO Number: 17-5-4


Hurricane impact windows stood in the way of a pair of hooded burglars who spent almost 15 minutes trying to get into a home but failed.

The pair was caught on home surveillance around 9:45 p.m. April 1 going into the backyard of a Parkland home.
The men, seen wearing hoodies and gloves, tried to use a crowbar to open one door. After several minutes of futile attempts, they struck the glass of another door with the crowbar. Though it slightly cracked the glass, the burglars made no progress on making entry. The pair then moved to a set of double doors, where they spent nine more minutes trying to work the latch with the crowbar to no avail. Finally, it appears something spooked them, and they ran off.

Anyone with information about the burglary attempt or the suspects is asked to contact BSO Detective Roger Jean at 954-509-1458. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org. Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
