Residents at a Tamarac apartment complex woke up to find their cars burglarized and now Broward Sheriff's Office detectives are turning to the public to identify the suspect.

Overnight on Oct. 19, the car burglar smashed his way into four vehicles parked near each other between 7750 and 7950 W. McNab Road. One owner realized he was a victim when he got a call around 7 a.m. that day from his bank about unusual transactions on his account. That's when he found that the passenger window of his 2012 Nissan Sentra was shattered and his wallet was gone.

Of the other three burglary victims, only one reported at the time having something of value stolen. The owner of a 2013 Toyota Corolla said a pair of Sony headphones worth $100 was swiped.

The suspect was captured on surveillance video walking in the corridors of the complex. He was also seen exiting the Walmart at 3001 N. State Road 7 in Lauderdale Lakes.

In the videos, the suspect appears to be lean and with a shaved head. At the apartment complex, he wore a white undershirt and red shorts. For his failed shopping spree, he wore a dark-colored shirt with red stripes and the same red shorts. At Walmart, he was accompanied by a woman who wore a fitted dress and had a blond-streaked weave.

Anyone with information is asked to contact BSO Det. Gerald Kitchell at 954-720-2225. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org. Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
