DANIA BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - The Broward Sheriff’s Office has released surveillance video of a warehouse robbery in Dania Beach.
Video shows two men climbing into the Electro95 warehouse at 1902 Tigertail Blvd., just before midnight, on Dec. 23.
The pair cut a hole in the ceiling and dropped into the warehouse. Investigators said the pair then disabled the alarm system, tilted the security camera, opened the bay door and proceeded to load a box truck with half a million dollars in electronics, including flat-screen TVs, navigation systems and iPads.
“It’s disgusting, it’s horrible. You have people in this world who don’t know how to work for things,” said Benor Azran, the owner of Electro95. “They have to go and rob other people who work very hard for their money.”
Authorities said the thieves unloaded the truck in an unknown location and returned to steal more merchandise.
“They came back a second time a couple hours later. They did the same thing,” said Azran.
Inside, Azran said, the burglars trashed his family’s store and left two holes in the ceiling.
“They had to have been experts,” he said. “They’ve been in my building before because they where my most expensive things were. They knew what to bring, what locks I had.”
The electronics store wasn’t the only place to be targeted in the area. Back in September, investigators said, a crew of thieves broke into a Holt Miami’s store just a couple of doors down. The crooks loaded up a vehicle with more than $700,000 in expensive gowns and furs.
Investigators have not tied the two crimes together.
BSO detectives believe at least five people were involved and used a white box truck, a dark-colored sedan and a dark-colored SUV to make off with their steal. “You get to see the vehicles they utilized. You see a dark-colored sedan and a box truck,” said BSO representative Keyla Concepcion.
Azran has since improved his security system and hopes someone will recognize the people in the video.
“We have 24-hour security. Our alarm system is way better than we had before. Better camera systems,” he said.
