    A Miramar optician says thieves were caught on camera swiping tens of thousands of dollars worth of frames from his store.

    Dr. Arnaldo Martinez calls them Superman burglars after the thieves made their way in to True Vision Optical by breaking holes in the walls of two vacant businesses.

    "Apparently they had the key to one of the empty units next to us," he said.

    And it seems once inside the optical store, the men had their eyes on specific frames: the high-end brands.

    "A lot of Raybans, Prada, Burberry, some Dolce Gabbana, Gucci, Tag Heuer," Martinez said.

    Only in frames, Dr. Martinez believes he lost $68,000. The men also stole a tablet, router, modem, and backup hard drive.

    "This is the second time it happens in my store and I feel like I'm working so much and then I get, all of a sudden, this. It's a little bit disappointing," he said.

    The thieves wore gloves and appear to be wearing T-shirts to cover their faces. The owner believes a third man, seen briefly, acted as an accomplice to disable the alarm, but plans are already in the works to upgrade the store's security system.

    "Enforce the walls, maybe put something to enforce the windows, things of that nature," Martinez said.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. The store owner is also offering an additional $1,000 reward.
