MIAMI – Surveillance video caught a pair of burglars in the act.
The crime happened at the 2700 block of Southwest 31st Place, on July 12, in Miami.
Two suspects can be seen in a room of the home.
They managed to steal $6,000 in cash, several high-end watches and more jewelry. All of these were valued at nearly $20,000.
Police said the victim left his house around 3 a.m., and he returned a few hours later.
The victim found his front door and a side door wide open. That was when he noticed his home had been ransacked.
Officer Michael Vega with the Miami Police Department shared his thoughts.
“It’s not a bad neighborhood,” said Vega. “It’s just scary to leave your house for an hour and a half and come back to find that you’ve been burglarized.”
Police said one suspect is a white male, bald with a medium build and was wearing a blue Adidas hoodie, black pants and gray gloves.
The other suspect, police said, was a man wearing a Reason brand jacket, with dark-colored pants and a blue face covering.
“I know that fear of is someone still in there,” said Vega. “Even nights after, you’re still thinking, ‘Are they going to come back? Is someone going to come back and rob me?’ So, it’s very scary. We hope to locate them and somebody can identify these two suspects.”
