Miami Gardens mechanic shop burglarized, loses $5,000 in equipment

MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - A high-priced heist was caught on camera in Miami Gardens.

According to the surveillance video, a thief took several pieces of equipment from a mechanic’s shop, Monday morning, at 16355 N.W. 27th Ave.

The video shows him walking in and out of the shop several times, taking something each time he left.

Bianca Matos, the manager of Andy General Mechanic, said the thief took $5,000 worth of equipment. “I need my stuff because I cannot work,” said Matos. “I am not able to check the cars outside. Look, the lady has the engine light on, and I cannot check it. I cannot check it because I don’t have my scanner.”
