MIAMI (WSVN) - Police are searching for a man who was caught on surveillance video stealing a flat-screen TV from an apartment building in Miami.
Security footage caught the perpetrator at the apartment complex near Northwest 36th Street and 22nd Avenue as he broke the lock of the victim’s front door, Saturday afternoon.
The video showed the subject, seen wearing a hoodie, entering the victim’s apartment. Some time later, he is then seen blocking two hallway surveillance cameras.
However, a parking garage camera captured the man leaving with the TV under his right arm.
The victim, Rolando Sanz, said the daytime theft has left his neighbors worried about their safety from thieves.
“Now the neighbors are scared because they think the same thing could happen to them, too,” said Sanz, as he spoke though a translator. “Supposedly, the doors and gate are very secured, but I don’t know how that guy could have opened the door into my apartment.”
If you have any information on this theft, 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.
