Description of Incident:

BSO detectives are looking for an opportunistic thief who snatched an iPad from a woman as she rode the county bus.

Jennifer Hunt, 33, was riding the Broward County bus while using her iPad and never anticipated that she was being watched by a thief just waiting for the right moment to steal her expensive personal electronic device. The unidentified man, wearing a white t-shirt and red shorts, got on the bus in East Hallandale. He took a seat near the victim and realized that she was sitting near an exit with an iPad. The thief pulled the stop switch and waited near the rear exit door for the bus to come to a stop. Once the bus doors opened, he quickly snatched the iPad and ran north on southwest 55 Avenue. Hunt tried to chase the robber but was unable to catch him. The robbery was captured on the bus video surveillance system.

Anyone with information can contact BSO Detective Theophilus Woulard at 954-321-4270 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.
