PARKLAND, Fla. – Broward Sheriff’s Office Parkland District detectives are searching for a group of juveniles who they say vandalized the same home on multiple occasions.
The first incident occurred around 3 a.m. on July 2.
According to BSO spokeswoman Claudinne Caro, the group threw several beer cans into the backyard and swimming pool of the home, located in the 10000 block of Majestic Trail in Parkland.
Lisette Munoz, the owner of the home, spoke with Local 10 News Thursday and had this message for the vandals responsible:
“I just hope that all parents that live in Parkland and are watching this, please talk to your kids and check your fridge. I don’t know what else to say other than this is getting ridiculous,” she said.
Caro said the group returned to the home around 11:30 p.m. on July 8 and threw eggs and fireworks into the backyard.
“Three juveniles were seen fleeing the area driving a golf cart, laughing,” Caro said in a news release.
According to Caro, the group returned for a third time around 10:25 p.m. last Friday and were captured on surveillance video throwing a firework at the rear of the home.
The video shows the firework exploding close to the home, causing damage.
Caro confirmed that the family who lives there was home at the time, but no one was injured.
Munoz told Local 10 News that she works seven days a week and has two girls with special needs.
She says she had to install an alarm to help prevent it from being vandalized again.
Local 10 News reporter Rosh Lowe asked Munoz, “If you had the chance to talk to the teens and their parents, what would you say to them?”
“I don’t know. First, I would like to ask why my house?” she responded.
Anyone with information about the identities of the culprits is asked to call BSO Parkland Detective Erick Quigley at 754-240-6950 or submit a tip through the SaferWatch app.
