DANIA BEACH (CBSMiami) — A man looking to be in no one’s good graces stole from a Dania Beach church not once but three times in one week, deputies said.
In total, Broward Sheriff’s deputies say Carlos Deblasio, 57, got away with hundreds of dollars from St. Matrona of Moscow church on various occasions.
Surveillance video shows a church volunteer confronting a man deputies say is Deblasio on April 13th after he allegedly stole $20 from a donation basket. He ended up getting away.
But that was just the beginning.
Deputies say, cameras caught him again a few days later, on April 17th, ransacking the church after smashing through the glass door. This time he allegedly got away with $500 from the church’s office.
Three days later, Deblasio allegedly did it again – breaking through a plywood sheet put in place to cover the door he had allegedly smashed days before. Deputies say he went straight for the parishioners’ donations and once again got away with several hundred dollars.
That same night, deputies arrested Deblasio on charges of burglary, grand theft and petit theft. He is currently being held on no bond.
