Folks, as you can see by the video, there are opportunistic thieves that test cars as they walk along. Once they find an unlocked car, they filter through looking for anything quick and potentially valuable. We can’t stress enough how important it is to keep your car doors locked.
In this case, the alleged thief didn’t take anything substantially valuable and everyone was safe. If you know who this person is, or see anyone testing car doors, please contact the Miami Springs Police Department at 305.888.9711.
