TRIO RAIDS ELECTRONICS STORE IN WESTON

Date: Sept. 1, 2017                                                         PIO Number: 17-9-2

The marauders rush into an electronics store in Weston and duck out about four minutes later with a bevy of Apple products. Watching the burglary unfold in real time is the store’s owner who calls the Broward Sheriff’s Office. Now, detectives are releasing surveillance video of the burglary in the hopes that someone can identify the suspects.

Around 2:50 a.m. Aug. 20, one of the suspects can be seen in the video crouching near Fix Apple Now, 2806 Weston Road. He creeps up to the store, hesitates and cracks the glass door open with a hammer. He and his two criminal cohorts scurry into the store. One suspect goes to the front desk looking for something to steal while the other two raid the office of Mac monitors and laptops. At one point, one of the burglars fills a red bin with electronics only to have it dumped and used by another suspect. The container is repurposed for iPhone accessories that line the store’s wall.

All three male suspects are slender and wear gloves. The suspect who hammered his way in has a head covering, a long sleeve dark-colored shirt with elbow patches and dark-colored pants. The second suspect has on a red New Era baseball cap, a pair of sagging jeans and layers of shirts including a black T-shirt and a blue shirt over a gray long sleeve shirt. His light-colored boxers can be seen. The third suspect has on a black shirt, ripped jeans and a red knit cap covering part of his shoulder-length dreads.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Michael Kravecz at 954-389-2010. 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.

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