Description of Incident:
A trio of thieves used a vacant business to gain access to a Metro PCS store and stole cell phones and cash worth several thousand dollars.
In the early hours of August 7, three masked burglars used an empty Pompano Beach storefront to gain entry to their true target. The thieves smashed the shop’s window and removed an adjoining wall to get into a Metro PCS storage unit. The trio rummaged through the storeroom and cash registers for nearly three and a half hours and stole more than $4,000 worth of electronics and money.
These suspects are also believed to be involved in as many as four other similar crimes in the north end of Broward County in the last few months.
Anyone with information can contact BSO Detective Marcus Williams at 954-786-4256 or report tips anonymously to Crime Stoppers of Broward County at (954) 493-TIPS (8477) or online at www.browardcrimestoppers.org. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $3,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
