Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff's Office detectives are searching for a barefaced burglar who broke into a business in Deerfield Beach, went directly for the cash box and got away with several hundred dollars.
At 1:35 a.m. on October 9, the surveillance cameras at Pronto Mowers captured a man who unabashedly broke into the business. The unmasked burglar seemed to know exactly where to go to reap the biggest rewards. In less than a minute he broke the glass door, ran to the register area and grabbed the store’s cash box. His quick getaway was dashed when he returned to the store to look for an item he dropped on the floor and was captured on camera for an additional nine minutes.
Anyone with information can report it to Det. Barbara Dyer at (954) 480-4287 or report anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers of Broward County at (954) 493-TIPS (8477) or online at www.browardcrimestoppers.org. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $3,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
