Marine store robbery equates to $1 million worth of nautical equipment

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. (AP) — Investigators said two men posing as job applicants are connected to a crew of thieves who stole $1 million worth of equipment from a Florida marine supply store.

Broward Sheriff’s spokeswoman Joy Oglesby tells local news outlets the burglary was carried out over a dozen visits during a weekend in January. The Sheriff’s office released a video of men in hopes that someone will recognize them.

She said the men applied for jobs Jan. 5. Later that night, thieves broke into a rear cargo door. Surveillance video shows the two applicants walking through the warehouse.

Tips leading to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
