Two burglars who made an early-morning call to a Deerfield Beach cellphone store are being sought by Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives.

The caper happened around 3:30 a.m. Feb. 5 at Metro PCS at 420 W. Hillsboro Blvd. Surveillance video shows the males walking through a shattered window and rushing toward the cashier’s counter where they take turns kicking a Dunbar safe that is secured to the floor. Once the Dunbar safe is free, the burglars carry it out through the cracked window pane. 

In the video, both suspects are dressed in all black. One burglar has a Puma hoodie pulled tightly across his face. The second person sports a beard and eyeglasses. According to detectives, the suspects have committed similar burglaries in Broward County. In the video that detectives are releasing today, the suspects are also seen in a Margate cellphone store.

Anyone with information can contact BSO Det. Derek Diaz at 954-480-4331. 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.

MEDIA NOTE: Surveillance video is available on sheriff.org.
