‘Ninja burglar’ arrested in connection to heists at upscale homes

NORTH MIAMI, FLA. (WSVN) - Police have arrested a man they believe is behind multiple high-priced heists in North Miami.

Investigators said 26-year-old Jorge Baez, nicknamed the “ninja burglar,” was dressed from head to toe like a ninja when he broke into three luxury homes, taking cash, jewelry and designer goods totaling over $200,000.

“I hope that he gets prosecuted and obviously gets whatever he deserves for breaking into these homes and violating these people’s lives,” one of the victims told 7News, “but I do think it was a community effort and a good effort by the police.”

Baez was taken into custody on Wednesday. He is out of jail on bond and is due in court next month.
