MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Police are trying to identify two burglars who got away with more than $81,000 worth of property from a southwest Miami-Dade home.
CBS4’s Peter D’Oench spoke exclusively to the owner of the home – Daniel Leon who was out-of-town at the time.
“I’m a man and seeing another man inside your home with a gun, especially when you have family in the house. You know or the family could have been here… all I want to do is find them and get justice done,” said Leon.
Surveillance video at the home, showed two hooded people with black masks break into the home through the rear window on April 8th just before 2 a.m.
One of them was armed with a gun and is seen in surveillance video pointing it toward the bedrooms of the home.
“He could have grabbed my mom. He could have grabbed my parents. He could have done some damage with a gun in the house,” said Leon.
Once inside, the two burglars ransacked the home, took keys to the homeowner’s car – a Honda Pilot – and got away with more than $81,000 worth of property. One of the items was a 600-pound safe.
“They came inside. They started waving guns and they just went into the back of the house, started searching through everything and that’s when they started taking my safe,” said Leon. “All my watches were stolen. All my jewelry was stolen.”
The vehicle has since been recovered but those responsible have not been found.
Anyone with information is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471 – TIPS.
