MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Police have arrested three men in South Florida accused of belonging to an international burglary ring.
One of those burglaries was caught on surveillance video.
Homeowner Javier Ferreira says thieves broke into his home last Thanksgiving and stole precious family heirlooms and expensive watches from his home.
“It’s kind of scary because I have a family and small children. So, I am glad we weren’t here,” said Ferreira.
In court on Thursday, Miami-Dade prosecutors said they cracked the international burglary ring responsible for Ferreira’s burglary and others, rounding up Dario Parra, Nicolas Peira and Ricardo Gonzalez Diaz.
They recovered jewelry and watches from a Miami home where some of the suspects were living.
