Detectives need help identifying suspect

Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect who is believed to have burglarized two Radio Shack stores on June 12 in the early morning hours.

On June 12 at 1:45 a.m., deputies responded to the Radio Shack in Key Largo to an alarm call. When they arrived, they found a front window broken out. The suspect had done some damage inside, but it appeared he had to flee before he could take any property.

A few hours later, at 4 a.m., deputies responded to the Radio Shack on Big Pine Key to an alarm going off. When they arrived, they found the front window broken out and a number of items missing, including cell phones, digital cameras and GPS systems.

Detectives Yunier Galvez and David Brummer, who were  assigned to investigate the cases were able to obtain photos of the suspect from surveillance cameras. He is described as a white male, 18 – 25 years of age, five foot eight to six feet tall wearing a long sleeve black shirt and multi-colored “board” shorts; they need the public’s help to identify him.

Anyone with information which would help identify the suspect in the photo should call the Sheriff’s Office immediately at 305-289-2351. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime  Stoppers of the Florida keys. If a tip leads to an arrest, the caller will be eligible for a cash reward. The Crime Stoppers hot line number is 1-800-346-TIPS. Tips can be submitted on line at tipsubmit.com.
