Man Steals Rifle From Police Cruiser in Pembroke Pines

The Pembroke Pines Police Department is searching for a burglar who stole an assault rifle, a Taser and a vest from a police cruiser.

The suspect – described by the PPPD as a “black or Hispanic light-skinned male with a distinctive tattoo on his right arm” – also took ammunition in the theft.

“We believe this suspect was involved in numerous burglaries – in the same time frame where at least another weapon was taken,” PPPD Capt. Al Xiques said.
