    "It was a complete shock," said Richie Prisco from Bru's Room. "We worked so hard, we put in new TVs. You feel violated. And they continue to go to all these other businesses. They are brazen and have no fear."

    Deputies said the men are connected to at least 16 burglaries in the northern part of the county.

    "These guys are working Pompano, Deerfield, Lighthouse Point. They've even gone out to Coral Springs and they're targeting businesses," BSO spokeswoman Gina Carter said. "They're looking for large flat screens they can sell easily and also are taking the cash registers."

    Surveillance video from Anthony's shows the men circle the restaurant in a green, older-model Toyota, officials said. One of the men stayed in the car, while two others entered the store. Surveillance video shows one of those men is thin, with shoulder-length dread locks, a dark-colored shirt and tan baggy shorts. The other is thin with short hair, and wearing a black tank top and red sneakers.

    Anyone with information is urged to call Det. Ronald Cusumano or Sgt. Brian O'Donoghue at 954-786-4242 or report anonymous tips to Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477). Crime Stoppers will pay up to $3,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
