Take a good look at the video and see if you recognize either burglar.

BSO, Dania Beach: Business owners were left sweeping up glass again after two smash-and-grab burglars threw a cement parking bumper through the glass door of a Dania Beach sports bar in late July. Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives believe it’s the same two criminals responsible for at least 30 similar crimes committed throughout the county since May.

Surveillance video from Andy’s Sports Bar around 5:40 a.m. July 27 shows one man smashing the front door and slipping inside the business. He jumped over the counter, stumbling slightly, grabbed the cash register and fled. The suspect was wearing baggy, green shorts, a white T-shirt, white and brown shoes and a Miami Heat cap. Witnesses said they were in a silver Chevrolet Malibu.

Since May, the duo has wreaked havoc at restaurants, dollar stores, bakeries and other businesses throughout the county. They typically strike in the early-morning hours when the businesses are closed. They have been seen in various vehicles including a white Chrysler Pacifica, as well as the Malibu.

One suspect appears to be thin with medium-length dreadlocks and some facial hair. He has extensive tattoos on his left arm, hand, upper torso and back and a smaller tattoo inside his right arm. The second has an athletic build with tattoos on both arms and a full beard.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Sira Arroyo at (954) 518-0154 or report anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers of Broward County at (954) 493-TIPS (8477) or online at Crime Stoppers will pay up to $3,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
