Description of Incident:
A man wearing a blue rosary and carrying wire cutters walked into a Lauderdale Lakes Metro PCS store, cut loose two pricey cell phones and walked out after a store employee confronted him.
Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives released surveillance images of the robber who wore a black T-shirt with a design on the front and back, black pants, blue headphones and boots. When he walked in just after noon, he began looking at phones like a regular customer. But at the Samsung Galaxy display, he cut the wires attached to an S4 and and S5 and took the phones. An employee grabbed his shirt and asked him to release the phones, but he charged toward her until she let him go.
Anyone who recognizes this criminal can contact Robbery Det. Scott Nida at (954) 321-4270 or report anonymous tips 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 an anonymous tip that leads to an arrest.
