Broward Sheriff’s Office released a video of thieves stealing a grill from Chef Tally’s World Famous Jerk, a burglary that almost cost one criminal his life under a truck.

They came for the grill. They nearly got run over by the truck.

On Jan. 20, a pair of thieves stole a $6,000 barrel-style grill from Chef Tally’s World Famous Jerk at 2481 SW 56th Ter. in West Park. But they almost got crushed in the process.

Surveillance video released by the Broward Sheriff’s Office shows the men pulling up to Chef Tally’s in a white cargo van around 3:40 a.m. They wanted the massive grill, which sat on a trailer. Chef Tally’s truck blocked the path between the trailer and their van. So, one of them tinkered under the truck to get it moving.

That worked. The truck rolled but it almost rolled over him. The criminals attached the trailer to the van and left with the grill.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact BSO Detective Jessica Abrams at 954-985-1953, Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477 or via the website.
