Crime Spree- Five Restaurants Burglarized Within Three Hours

On Monday, authorities released surveillance video of a burglar who broke into five restaurants within three hours in Broward County. The burglar is also suspected of at least 15 other burglaries within the county, said the Broward Sheriff's Office.

He started on April 17 at 11:30 p.m., hitting China Chief Restaurant at 1323 S. State Road 7 in North Lauderdale, authorities said. The suspect threw something through the glass door, went inside and stole money from the register and left.

About 30 minutes later, a person matching the same description, burgled three Tamarac restaurants and then one in Oakland Park, the sheriff's office said.

Four of the five restaurants were Asian, authorities said.

Money was stolen in each burglary and in some cases flat screen TVs.

According to surveillance video, the suspect was wearing a ski mask, gloves, baggy pants, black sneakers and a dark jacket with a horizontal stripe across
the chest and arms. He was carrying a backpack.
