Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff's Office investigators are asking for the public’s help in finding serial burglars on the hunt for flat screen TVs, targeting businesses in the Pompano Beach area.
On November 25, two unidentified burglars smashed the front door of the Excel Barber Shop on Dixie Highway. The thieves stole two flat screen televisions but not before they caused serious damage. The burglars were captured by the shop’s surveillance cameras as they ripped the TV’s from the walls and smashed the shop’s large wall mirrors.
Just three days later the thieves struck again. This time they targeted Bru’s Room, a restaurant just three and a half miles from the site of their previous burglary. During this burglary, three unidentified men stole eight large flat screen televisions from the restaurant. At 4:15 a.m., a Bru’s Room surveillance camera captured the three burglars as well as an older model light-colored pick-up truck as it drove west on the south side of the restaurant’s patio bar. Detectives believe that this vehicle may have been used during the crime.
Anyone with information is asked to contact detectives James Pedre or Ronald Cusumano at 954-786-4242 or report anonymous tips to Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or to www.browardcrimestoppers.org online. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $3,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
