MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Two West Park businesses were burglarized within minutes overnight.

It happened at 2701 South State Road 7 at the “Prime Liquors-Miramar” store and a cellphone store next door.

Surveillance video captured two crooks wearing hooded sweatshirts smash in the glass door of Pay Wireless. He then sticks his hand in the hole to unlock the door.

Once inside, they ransacked the place taking thousands in used cellphones, iPads, and tablets. They then broke into the liquor store through the glass front door and stole several cases.

“It’s terrible, you know,” said the owner. “They break in and they get some bottles, you know.”

He’s offering a $3,000 reward for information that leads to their arrest.

A third smash and grab overnight occurred miles away in Dania Beach. A burglar took a sledgehammer to the glass front door of a T-Mobile store on Sheridan Street. Once inside, he and his accomplice proceeded to rip iPads and other merchandise from the walls and display cases.

Police have not said if smash and grabs in West Park and Dania Beach are connected.
