FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Three thieves have been caught on camera targeting vehicles inside a gated garage.

Neighbors told Local 10 News that the threesome has been targeting cars near the Lauderdale Yacht Club for weeks.

“It’s a little disturbing to think about if you’re coming home at that hour,” resident Mary Johnson said.

The thieves forced a gate open, gaining entry into the condominium building’s garage.

Surveillance video shows the intruders going car by car, checking for unlocked doors, stealing clothing, sunglasses, credit cards and an expensive wallet Johnson’s daughter forgot in their car.

Johnson and her neighbors said for weeks the men seen in the video are believed to have been breaking into multiple cars in the Rio Vista neighborhood, which is near the Lauderdale Yacht Club.

Families using the Neighbors app said the trio has been seen riding around the area on electric scooters.

Anyone with information or that may have seen them is urged to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
