WESTON, Fla. – Four thieves were captured on surveillance video smashing car windows and stealing purses last month in a parking lot in Weston, authorities said.

The incident was reported Dec. 26 outside a gym at 1440 Northpark Drive.

Broward sheriff's deputies said the men pulled into the parking lot in a white Kia Optima with dark-tinted windows.

Surveillance video shows each of the thieves approaching opening the car's four doors at once, possibly in an attempt to shield the camera's view of the crime.

Deputies said the men smashed the windows of the vehicles parked on either side of the Kia and stole three purses that were inside the cars.

Authorities said the same Kia was seen outside an Orange Theory on Weston Road earlier that night, where another vehicle was burglarized.

Anyone with information about the thieves' identities is asked to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. A reward of up to $3,000 is offered for information that leads to an arrest.
