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.
