MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Broward Sheriff’s Office is hoping someone will be able to recognize a man they say has been caught several times on surveillance video repeatedly stealing everything from light switches to large televisions from a North Lauderdale Walmart.
Police say their suspect has hit the same store five times over the course of a month, starting on Friday, Sept. 11, at the Walmart located at 7900 McNab Road.
Their suspect’s modus operandi is always the same, police say he enters through the front of the store, but as video shows, he exits by kicking the back door and exiting with a cartful of unpaid items.
