Detectives are asking for the public’s help in finding the man caught on video stuffing his clothing with stolen goods from 7-Eleven.
On Nov. 17, an unidentified man walked into the 7-Eleven at 8100 W. McNab Road in North Lauderdale and walked out with his arms and pants full of stolen loot. He wandered around the store stuffing items including wireless speakers, virtual reality goggles and car cleaning supplies down the front of his pants. In the middle of his shoplifting spree, the man brazenly grabbed a drink from the store’s refrigerator and drank it on camera. He then filled his arms with items and slowly walked out of the store.
The thief is described as a male in his 30s, with a medium build and a dark complexion. He weighs about 180 pounds and is about 5 foot 9 inches tall. On the day of the theft, he wore a red T-shirt, ripped and distressed blue jeans, dark sandals with white socks and a black baseball cap.
Anyone with information is asked to contact BSO Det. Justin Panza at 954-720-2250 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or browardcrimestoppers.org. Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
