MEDLEY, FLA. (WSVN) - A man is behind bars after cameras caught him stealing from two separate properties in Miami-Dade County.

On Sunday, a Ring camera captured Jose Alberto Rodriguez Ruiz, 24, entering a house located on Northwest 68th Court, near Northwest 76th Street, where he opened the door of a BMW 328i, entered the vehicle and drove away with it.

Detectives were able to obtain more video footage from the area that showed Rodriguez Ruiz stealing soft drinks from a refrigerator on another property on Saturday.

The Fort Lauderdale Police Department located and recovered the BMW on Monday before sending out a notice to be on the lookout for the thief.

On Thursday, Medley police officers located Rodriguez Ruiz walking along Northwest 74th street toward Okeechobee Road; he was arrested without incident.

The 24-year-old admitted to entering both properties and the crimes he committed. He was found with the keys to a Maserati that was located at a nearby motel parking lot. Further investigation revealed the luxury car was stolen.

Rodriguez Ruiz now faces multiple charges.
