DAVIE (CBS4) – Davie Police are on the lookout for two women who were caught on camera stealing a pair of iPads from children at a restaurant.
Surveillance video from outside the Shorty’s BBQ Restaurant on 5989 S. University Drive shows two women walk by a bench and snatch two iPad tablets that were accidentally left on the bench.
The tablets belong to 8 year old Allen Worrell and his older brother Terry. After they found out their iPad’s were gone, the brothers were upset.
“I knew they were gone, I really hope we get it back. I Wish people weren’t so mean,” said Terry.
“I think anything that happens to your child is the hardest thing to accept because to see your child suffer and to know that you’re causing it and aiding to that suffering, it’s incomprehensible to me,” said mother Victoria Worrell.
Police are also looking for a third woman who was with the alleged thieves.
“They are the worst kind of criminals, because if somebody pulls a gun you know what they’re after. These are people who watched the child cry and it didn’t phase them,” said father Terry Worrell.
The manager of the restaurant has offered to replace the iPads.
“It’s not our policy to replace lost or stolen items but in this case, you know, sometimes you have to bend the rules in order to do what’s right,” said manager Brad Steriti.
Anyone who recognizes the women is urged to call Broward Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS.
