Description of Incident:
Two young bandits, believed to be in their late teens, were captured on surveillance video burglarizing a convertible earlier this month in a Pompano Beach neighborhood.
Shortly before 2 a.m. August 3, the video shows the suspects approaching the 2006 Chrysler Sebring convertible parked in the driveway of Thomas Terwilliger’s house in the 3100 block of Northwest 1 Avenue.
One of the suspects rifles through the unlocked Sebring while the other acts as a lookout. The crooks calmly walk away with a $100 watch and a bag containing $10 worth of quarters.
BSO detectives remind residents that vehicle burglaries can be significantly reduced if they remember to lock their vehicles and remove any items of value from plain view.
Anyone with information on the identities of the suspects is asked to call BSO Pompano Beach Det. Scott Schaefer at (954) 786-4242 or contact Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at (954) 493-TIPS (8477) or online at www.browardcrimestoppers.org.
