Deputies investigate smash-and-grab burglaries to 2 West Park businesses
Surveillance video shows crooks rummaging through cellphone store after smashing glass to front door
WEST PARK, Fla. – Deputies are investigating two smash-and-grab burglaries to a pair of West Park businesses.
The burglaries occurred early Tuesday at a liquor store and cellphone store on State Road 7 near Southwest 27th Street.
Surveillance video shows one of two men wearing hooded sweatshirts using a hammer to smash the glass to the front door of the Pay Wireless store, creating a hole large enough for him to stick his hand through and unlock the door.
Once inside, the burglars spent about a minute rummaging through the store.
The owner said the crooks got away with about $5,000 worth of new and used cellphones, iPads and tablets.
Another business, Prime Liquors, was also burglarized. The owner said the crooks got away with three or four bottles of alcohol.
