DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. - An unassuming man who was seen riding a bicycle last month through a beachside neighborhood came back later in the night to burglarize a home, Broward Sheriff's Office deputies said.

The burglary was reported March 22 at a home in Deerfield Beach.

Deputies said the thief was spotted in the neighborhood the morning before the burglary riding a bike, but he didn't seem suspicious.

They said surveillance video shows him returning later in the evening, lurking around a property and peeking into windows.

Deputies said the man broke into the home through a sliding glass door and left just before 7:30 a.m. with a wagon full of stolen items.

Authorities said the stolen goods included a blue folding utility wagon, three Samsung flat-screen TVs, a Krups coffeemaker, three Amazon Fire TV Sticks, an Arlo Smart Home Security Camera System valued at more than $500 and $800 worth of luxury bedding.

Anyone with information about the man's identity is asked to call Detective Dimos Charoudis at 954-480-4300. Anonymous tips can be made by calling Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. A reward of up to $3,000 is offered for information that leads to an arrest.
