U-Haul-Driving Thieves Bust in to Best Buy in Fort Lauderdale
U-haul: Ideal for moving into a dorm or breaking into a Best Buy.
Shortly after the doors closed last night at the Best Buy on North Federal Highway, a U-Haul truck driver decided to open them back up. Fort Lauderdale cops are looking for three men who rammed a truck into the store's south door, then ransacked the store of laptops and iPods.
From the FLPD news release:
It was discovered that the U-Haul arrived in the parking lot at approximately 11:03 P.M. At approximately 11:04 P.M., the alarm company was alerted. At the same time, the south-side door was smashed by the front of the U-Haul truck. Two suspects entered into the store with two green trash cans and trash bags. A short time later, a third suspect entered into the store. The suspects were able to break into the laptop and I-Pod cases. At approximately 11:08 P.M. all suspects exited the business.
The suspects left both green trash containers on-scene with numerous items inside.
The U-haul was seized by officer's on the scene, and Best Buy Management is still obtaining the total loss. There is video of this incident; however, the video is being obtained from store management.
The suspects have been described as three white males, in their twenties, last seen wearing blue jean shorts and jeans.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Detective Tom Capano at 954-828-5526 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-Tips.
