Two burglary suspects have been arrested and a third is being sought after they were seen bragging on social media about stealing and flashing money, Pinecrest Police said.
Raderius Glenn Collins, 18, and Marcus Terrell Parker, 27, were arrested on multiple charges including burglary, grand theft, criminal mischief and dealing in stolen property in the crime spree that brought them more than $500,000 worth of jewelry, police said.
Police say Collins, Parker and a third man burglarized a house in the 13200 block of Southwest 63rd Court and a home on the 6300 block of 107th Street in Pinecrest. The burglars stole a safe from one home with jewelry valued at more than $500,000 and jewelry valued at more than $10,000 from another.
Authorities are looking for a third suspect who was seen on a Facebook video with a bag full of $100 bills bragging about their illegal earnings, saying on camera “We got a safe.”
One of the men arrested told police that he and the other two subjects sold the stolen jewelry to a shop and received $1,300 each in return. Police found much of the stolen jewelry at Xodium Jewelry and Watch located in Southland Mall.
Jewelry was also found in the homes and vehicles of the men. The safe taken from one of the burglarized houses was found abandoned alongside an open field at SW 224th Street and 115th Avenue.
"I still feel jittery because I just feel like nothing is fool-proof and my house was violated, invaded," one of the victims, who didn't want to be identified, told NBC 6.
Police are asking anyone with information of the third suspect to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
