MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Detectives are looking for two suspects who reportedly took thousands of dollars worth of valuables during a car break-in on June 25 in Miami.
At around 6:30 p.m., the burglars broke into a white Chevy Malibu parked near 3358 SW 3rd Ave and stole $100,000 worth of watches and other personal items, Miami Police Department said.
According to police, the owners of the burglarized car had purchased the watches from a local jewelry and watch show earlier in the day, stored them in the car and then drove to a restaurant.
A surveillance camera nearby captured a black Nissan Murano pull up behind the Chevy. The Murano appeared to have been parked only a few spaces away.
One of the suspects gets out of the Murano and can be seen trying to break into the car. After a few moments, he was able to open the front door on the driver’s side.
However, the burglar quickly jumps back into the getaway car and the driver takes off.
