Miami-Dade female drivers being targeted by thieves


Miami-Dade detectives are warning women about a ring of thieves that burglarize their vehicles while parked at parks, gyms and day cares for the purpose of stealing their identification.

On July 12, the ring burglarized a car that was parked at Westwind Lakes Park at 6805 SW 152nd Ave. in West Miami-Dade.The victim’s identification and checkbooks were stolen and approximately $2,000 was defrauded.

Police said the suspects will cash a check, written out to cash, stolen from one victim’s vehicle at a bank belonging to a victim from another vehicle burglary. The ring then enlists a female accomplice who resembles the person on the identification from the second vehicle burglary to cash the check at a bank drive-thru.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers
