A video camera in a taxi caught with crisp clarity a thief operating in a parking lot. Now, Miami police would like to catch the thief.
A man backed his car into the parking space next to the taxi at Publix, 1776 Biscayne Blvd., on July 10. He quickly got out of the driver’s side door, entered the taxi’s unlocked driver’s side door and began searching for valuables. Within 35 seconds, the thief was returning to his car with what was described as a $1,000 Hewlett-Packard laptop computer.
The thief was described as 30 to 35 years old and 220 pounds. Anyone who recognizes this miscreant is asked to call the Miami police Burglary Unit at 305-603-6030 or contact Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477; via text at 274637; or via the website.
