MIAMI (WSVN) - Police are hoping the public will help them locate a man who, they said, broke into a house in Miami three days in a row and even helped himself to the homeowner’s leftovers.
Surveillance video captured the subject walking around the residence, located off Northeast 82nd Street, and making himself at home, Saturday. “He came into the house and proceeded to steal all my TVs, my bicycle, computers,” said the homeowner, who asked not to be identified or show his face on camera.
Exterior cameras show the burglar carrying a large flat-screen out of the home. He did not seem to be in a hurry.
The homeowner said the perpetrator broke into his home Saturday, Sunday and Monday. “This is extremely brazen,” said the homeowner. “Even the fact that it was in broad daylight, and he came so many times.”
The homeowner, who was out of town at the time of the burglaries, said the subject entered the house through a window. The subject paid no attention to the blaring alarm as he helped himself to a slice of cheesecake in the refrigerator. He didn’t bother to use a fork as he bit into the dessert, and is even shown on camera gobbling up crumbs that had fallen on the kitchen floor.
“Once again, he’s brazen,” said the homeowner, “but I guess thieves get hungry as well.”
Exterior cameras later showed the subject walking away with a ladder and cables to the flat-screen. The homeowner said he also got away with a lot more. “Projectors, iPads, iPods. He took a sink from my studio,” he said.
What concerns the homeowner most is that the burglar did not appear to be the least bit frightened.
The footage also captures police officers inside the home. The homeowner said they came every single time his home was burglarized, and every single time the crook got away.
However, the homeowner hopes the crystal-clear quality of the surveillance video will help authorities capture the hungry burglar. “We’re going to catch you,” he said. “With this story, I hope that people see it, and they’ll call in and report the crime.”
If you have any information on these burglaries, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
