AVENTURA, Fla. (WSVN) — Surveillance video captured a man trying to steal thousands of dollars worth of navigation equipment from an Aventura man’s 52-foot yacht.
The man was looking to take equipment valued at $35,000 before an alarm went off, sending the would-be burglar running.
It happened Tuesday right after 6 a.m. on Northeast 207th Street and 35th Avenue at the Waterways Marina.
The boat owner is now asking for help identifying the man. “I sure hope we can catch him,” said boat owner Scott Patterson. “Not really for me, but for other owners. I’m sure this guy is breaking into homes, breaking into cars, and it’s dangerous. Somebody could have gotten hurt.”
If you can recognize the suspect, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
