Police Release Surveillance Video Of Phone Store Burglary
South Florida Crime
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Police have released surveillance video of a smash and grab robbery inside a North Miami cell phone store.
It happened Tuesday at 4:50 a.m. at the Wireless Toyz store at the corner of Dixie Highway and NE 135th street.
According to police, the thieves used a stolen car that they reversed into the building then ditched it at the scene. On the video, you can see the three burglars stuffing phones into pillow case like bags.
“Obviously it’s upsetting. We want to do business when this happens it’s a disappointment but something we will work through,” said Manny Palacios, the store manager.
Palacios said they deal in mostly pre paid phones and the thieves did not make it to the back of the store where some of the inventory is kept.
Police don’t know whether this is connected to other smash and grab incidents in South Florida.
If you have any information about this crime, please call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
