Two men were arrested Friday morning in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea after being caught with $21,000 worth of stolen camera equipment, the Broward Sheriff's Office said.

One suspect is still at large, the sheriff's office said.

Fabian Suarez, 28, and Carlos Ramirez-Martinez, 23, were arrested after stealing camera equipment from The Camera Clinic, located at 250-B East Commercial Blvd. It was not immediately known if they had attorneys.

At about 4 a.m., Deputy Hank Juntunen was on a routine patrol when he heard an alarm going off on Commercial Boulevard.

He saw two subjects running from The Camera Clinic, the sheriff's office said. Juntunen attempted to stop them when they jumped in a car and left. He followed the car into Fort Lauderdale, then back into Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. At the 4600 block of Bougainvilla Drive, they got out and started running.

"They pried the door open and they used a crowbar and a large screwdriver," said owner Robert Pollack.

Suarez and Ramirez-Martinez were caught after a foot chase.

"The deputy doubled back he went to investigate and he found two subjects that came out of the back door of a business and jumped into a car and took off," said Mike Jachles of the Broward Sheriff's Office.

The car they were driving had stolen cameras, burglary tools and cocaine inside. The stolen camera equipment was returned to the store owner.

A third suspect, who is still at large, was seen leaving the crime scene by foot.

"Its a good ending, got my equipment back and two out of  three in jail," said Pollack.

The sheriff's office is asking anyone with information to call 954-640-4240.
