If You Have a Mustang Cobra and You Live in Pompano Beach...
It's unclear why the thieves are choosing the souped-up Mustangs and how they located four of them in the same upscale neighborhood in southeast Pompano Beach. Some of the four Cobras were towed and some were driven away. One was recovered at a muffler shop in South Miami. The thefts happened in the early-morning hours on four days in November and December on four neighboring streets.
Detectives are releasing a surveillance photograph of one suspect Dec. 30 at a Hialeah bank where he used a victim's debit card at an ATM. The suspect used the debit card at 6:30 a.m. at a Regions Bank, 3700 W. 12th Ave., Hialeah, just two and a half hours after a 2003 Mustang Cobra was taken in Pompano Beach. A white Ford SUV in the background of the surveillance photo is a suspect vehicle.
Anyone with information about these crimes or about the individual in the surveillance photo can report that information to BSO Det. Carol Singstock at (954) 786-4553 or report it anonymously to Crime Stoppers of Broward County at (954) 493-TIPS.
