Man steals about 500 iPad minis from Hollywood business, police say

Stolen iPads valued between $250,000-$300,000

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – The Hollywood Police Department released surveillance video Thursday that shows a man ransacking a warehouse earlier this week.

The burglary occurred around 1 a.m. Monday at Everything Deals -- an electronics shipping company at 2848 Stirling Road.

According to authorities, the burglar got into the warehouse by breaking through an exterior concrete wall by using a sledgehammer.

Surveillance video shows him hacking away at the wall for about 20 minutes before shining a flashlight inside. 

He then crawled through the hold into the warehouse. 

The thief is then seen ransacking the place, stealing about 500 iPad minis valued between $250,000 and $300,000, police said.

The business owner told Local 10 News the man eventually snipped the security camera, causing it to go black. 

Detectives are asking anyone with information about the burglary to call the Hollywood Police Department at 954-764-4357 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
