MIAMI – A burglar was caught on camera loading items from a storage closet into a shopping cart and then into an SUV before speeding off from a parking garage area with the stolen property, police said Tuesday.

The burglary took place just after 11:20 p.m. June 28 at Camacol Tower, 1401 W. Flagler St., according to a news release from the Miami Police Department.

An employee at Camacol Tower, a housing facility, noticed that a few things had been displaced and were missing as he opened up for business the morning after the burglary, police said.

The worker told his supervisor, and they reviewed the building’s security surveillance footage together, detectives said.

The footage showed a suspect who has a full beard, appears to be 30 to 40 years old, is about 5 feet 5 inches to 6 feet tall and was last seen wearing a black shirt and jeans. The man has a medium build and short black hair. Among other items, he got away with a computer and a power drill.

He was seen on tape entering and prowling around the property before making his way to the storage closet inside the parking garage. He took items from the closet to the SUV with the help of the shopping cart, loaded the property into a dark-colored SUV just outside the garage and fled in an unknown direction, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Miami Police Department’s burglary unit at 305-603-6030. Or, remain anonymous by providing a tip to Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471- TIPS (8477).
