NORTH LAUDERDALE, FL – Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives have releasing video of a burglar who they say cut, climbed and smashed his way into a North Lauderdale residence.
According to police, at approximately 9:40 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 2, home surveillance video captures a subject knocking on the front door of a residence in the 8300 block of Southwest 19th Street asking for someone with the name Christina. The homeowner explains the person he is asking for is not at the residence. The subject is then seen walking away from the home and toward another individual who was waiting for him. Detectives believe the same subjects then went to a nearby home, cut a patio motion sensor and jumped the fence into the backyard.
A rear sliding glass door on the second story of the residence was shattered, and the master bedroom was ransacked. The subjects stole more than $2,000 worth of jewelry and the victim’s house key. One of the male subjects appears to be wearing sandals, socks and black sweatpants.
Detectives are asking anyone with information regarding these cases to contact BSO North Lauderdale Detective Justin Panza at 954-720-2250. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org. A reward of up to $3,000 is available for information that leads to an arrest.
