Orlando Police hope you can help catch the crooks who broke into apartments and stole expensive items. Detectives say one of the crimes is caught on camera. They tell us the burglars busted into the back of three apartments in MetroWest and stole whatever they could grab.
A home security camera system is giving detectives a critical clue to work with. The videotape shows three suspects with their faces covered stealing what they want and then taking off. Police say three break-ins happened December 20th and 21st at The Madison at MetroWest. Residents like Shohrah Olfat are alarmed to hear about it.
She said, “It’s definitely terrifying to know, especially around the holidays.”
Police tell us the crooks stole flat screen televisions, computers, Ipads, jewelry and other items as they raced through the apartments.
Detectives tell Fox 35 News the suspects smashed in back windows and a door of the three apartments, before rummaging through rooms to swipe expensive items.
Thankfully, no one was hurt. The three victims were not available to talk to us, but residents at the apartments hope you will take a good look at the video and help police catch these crooks as soon as possible.
Olfat adds, “It’s a priority. You know we live in a pretty safe area, so it’s just very surprising to have that occur here.”
Detectives found fingerprints inside one of the apartments. They hope those prints and the surveillance video will help take these burglars off our streets soon.
