Burglars bungle breaking into a Broward Sheriff's Office car, and detectives want to make sure it's their last criminal fumble.
Around 4:40 a.m. April 30, the burglars park the SUV next to a marked BSO car at an apartment complex near North Dixie Highway and East Commercial Boulevard in Oakland Park. Surveillance video shows two passengers get out of the car: a watchman and a doer.
The more proactive burglar peeks inside the deputy's car and then works on breaking the driver's side window. The other suspect mostly stands watch before walking over to assist his partner. Fortunately, the thieves are unsuccessful and leave empty-handed.
The suspects have thin builds, and both wore hoodies. One of the suspects had on a distinctive graphic T-shirt
