Thieves Rob Oakland Park Dunkin' Donuts: Watch the Video and Help Catch a Thief

If you love crime dramas, here's your chance to catch two real-life thieves.

On November 17, 2014, two young men double-teamed the Dunkin' Donuts at 751 E. Commercial Blvd. in Oakland Park.

Just before midnight, one of the youths knocked on the front door to get the attention of the lone employee -- while the second thief sneaked in through the back door and went straight to the cash drawer on a baker's rack.

The back-door thief ran out with the money, but not before stopping to wipe off any fingerprints he might have left behind.

Make all the doughnut/police jokes you want, but the Broward Sheriff's Office clearly wants these two brought to justice.

The BSO just released footage of what it calls a coordinated distraction theft and is looking for help in trying to catch the suspects, described by BSO as in their late teens to early 20s.

Watch the video, and if you know these cheeky little thieves, contact BSO Det. Agusti at 954-202-3118 or report anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers of Broward County at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at A reward of up to $3,000 is available for information leading to an arrest.
