NWMD daycare center burglar remains at large

NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Cameras at a Northwest Miami-Dade daycare caught a man breaking in, Friday morning, and the owner said this isn’t the first burglary she’s dealt with.

The burglary took place at It’s a Small World Learning Center II, located at 3100 NW 94th St. The owner, Mayra Quevedo, who has run the daycare for over 17 years, told 7News they have already been burglarized at least 15 times.

“They’ve broken in doors, windows, ransacked our park,” Quevedo said. “It’s been so many times, and so many times nothing’s ever happened.”

The daycare center’s new surveillance cameras caught the burglary as it happened, early Friday morning. The video shows the daycare’s window being shattered before a man crawls inside. He walked around for a minute before grabbing his backpack and leaving the scene.

Employees said that, as far as they know, nothing was taken, but he did leave a big mess.

Now, Quevedo is hoping the public will help identify this burglar. “If anyone knows him, they should help get him,” said the owner, “because, at the end of the day, this is a school where little children come to learn. Just to keep the children safe because this is a person that’s in the neighborhood that’s hurting an environment of children.”

“How low is that?” Quevedo added. “It’s low.”

If you have any information on this burglary, 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.
