The Broward Sheriffs’ Office is investigating a rash of recent vehicle break-ins and auto crimes committed in Parkland, agency records show.
During a Jan. 24 car break-in on Northwest 60th Place in Parkland, someone stole $40 cash and three pairs of glasses from an unlocked vehicle, according to BSO crime summaries. The victim’s total estimated loss was $580.
The next evening, between three and four unknown suspects burglarized three unlocked vehicles on Northwest 88th Avenue between 2:45 a.m. and 3:15 a.m., deputies said.
They stole an Apple Watch 6 worth $600 from one of the cars, according to BSO.
Shortly after 4 a.m. that same morning, several unidentified culprits tried to burglarize vehicles by pulling on door handles on Northwest 99th Way in the Landings, starting with a victim’s Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon, deputies said.
Both vehicles were parked in a driveway and locked. Nothing was stolen from either.
The culprits also tried to burglarize a second victim’s unlocked Mercedes GLS, parked in a driveway on Northwest 61st Court, deputies said. Nothing was reported missing from the victim’s vehicle in that case, either.
Anyone with information about any of the auto crimes is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
