SUNRISE (CBSMiami) – Flush with Black Friday weekend sales, a Sunrise clothing store gave $162,000 to a man who said he was an armored car guard for Brinks. The only problem was the man was an impostor, the money went missing with him, and now, police are asking for help in finding him.
They think they know who he is. They are looking for John Mortimer, a Lauderhill man who will celebrate his 25th birthday next week. What they don’t know is where he is.
It’s possible he’s not even in the country. Mortimer is known to spend time in Montego Bay, Jamaica, according to a reward flyer released Monday by Broward Crime Stoppers.
Mortimer is wanted for armed burglary and grand theft, and a no-bond warrant has been issued for his arrest. He’s wanted for taking the money from the Aeropostle store in Sunrise last November 26th
Crime Stoppers is offering a $1 thousand reward for information leading to his arrest. Anyone with information can share it anonymously at 954 493 TIPS.
