A Monday morning North Miami Beach burglary could be the latest crime carried out by the same suspects who burglarized two h.h. greggs in August, police said.

Five masked thieves smashed through the side window of Spytrix Electronics Monday and snatched thousands of dollars worth of merchandise in five minutes.

“Everything was a complete mess, everything was on the floor,” said Josephina Capriles, the store’s owner of 13 years.

The suspects, caught on the store’s 16 surveillance cameras, were dressed in black and calmly carried out the burglary. Capriles said it appeared as though the thieves had visited the store before.

“They knew what they were taking, they knew everything, they for sure were here before, they knew everything,” she said. “The professional cameras and everything.”

North Miami Beach Police, who believe the five men are the same suspects in the two h.h. gregg burglaries, said the three break-ins have similarities.

Although Capriles said her store isn’t insured, she hopes the surveillance video will help the police capture the crooks.
