NORTH LAUDERDALE, FL – According to authorities, a man burglarized two vehicles while the victims mourned at their loved one’s gravesites, and detectives with the Broward Sheriff’s Office North Lauderdale district need your help identifying this criminal. Investigators say the subject committed a similar crime at a tennis center in Parkland a few days later. Broward Sheriff’s Parkland district detectives are also trying to solve this case.
According to investigators, the first crime occurred on April 10 near the 7700 block of Bailey Road in North Lauderdale. The victim told detectives that her black 2014 Acura was burglarized while she visited her mother’s gravesite located in the area. Eight days later, another victim’s vehicle, a black 2021 BMW X5, was also broken into near the same cemetery as that victim visited a family member’s grave. Two days after the second break-in, a third victim reported that her 2015 GMC Yukon was burglarized while she attended her son’s tennis match near the 7900 block of Parkside Drive in Parkland.
In all three cases, the suspect stole the victims’ purses containing their wallets and other miscellaneous items. The thief then used their credits cards to purchase over $2,500 worth of gift cards.
Surveillance video from multiple stores captured an individual matching the burglar’s description driving a light-colored vehicle into a store parking lot. The male is seen entering the businesses wearing a hooded sweatshirt, completing multiple gift card transactions and then exiting.
