Police looking for suspected pick-up truck burglar
AVENTURA, Fla. (WSVN) -- Surveillance cameras at an Aventura home caught a driver of an old pick-up truck as he drove up to the house, loaded his truck with items from the house and drove away.
The Aventura home off Northeast 214 Street is in a quite and peaceful neighborhood but surveillance cameras from the home caught a man stealing in broad daylight.
In the video you see when the man first drives up and the bed of the pick-up truck is empty. The man then disappears from the camera view and minutes later you can see him coming out to the driveway carrying items, when the man drives away, the truck bed is fully loaded.
Aventura Police Officer Tom Mundy said, "The video is crystal clear. We have a good picture of his pick-up truck, a good description of him, a good picture of him approaching the house and I think it's just a matter of time until someone calls us and lets us know."
Carolina Maghonna who lives at the home said, "He comes like it's his house. He fill it up and starts taking things."
Maghonna said she has done everything to protect her family against crime by installing numerous surveillance cameras at the home. "I work for this stuff and for someone to come and take it all is not cool," said Maghonna.
Officer Mundy said, "11 o'clock in the morning, very brazen and we're hoping someone, a neighbor, someone in the area, has seen the pick-up truck driving around and you call the Aventura Police Department."
Maghonna said her family who is in the painting business is out of several ladders, air compressors and other materials used for painting.
If you have any information on this burglary, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
