Miami Police on Thursday were looking for a team of burglars wanted for breaking in to several homes.
Surveillance video captured two men who police say stole a pillowcase of items including jewelry valued at over $50,000.
"Tons of jewelry," said one victim who wanted to remain anonymous. "All the jewelry that we've ever had. Everything. Rolexes, diamond rings, diamond necklaces, diamond earrings... They took everything.
Two burglaries occurred on Monday. The first incident took place at 718 SW 25 Road around 12:17 p.m., police said.
"These are thugs. The bottom line, they're breaking into homes. They smash a door. These are criminals," said police spokesman Freddie Cruz. "In all these cases, the victims were at work. They weren't home. They smashed a side door, a front door. They ransacked the home, and again in one case they came out with a pillow case from the citim with over $50,000 in jewelry and U.S. currency."
A witness, the mother-in-law of one of the anonymous victim, approached the vehicles and one of the suspects yelled at the other suspect to come outside, according to police. The duo fled the scene and shortly after, burglarized another nearby home at 540 SW 25 Road, police said.
Police urge anyone with information to call Miami Police Department’s Burglary Unit at (305) 603-6030. Anyone who wishes to remain anonymous, can call Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS (4877).
