Deputies found that someone had broken into a commercial property management company and then cut through drywall to enter a T-Mobile store, the newspaper reported. Investigators found an empty safe and black paint covering the lenses of the cellphone company’s security cameras.
According to deputies, property stolen included 93 new T-Mobile phones, Apple watches, Samsung watches and a bag of SIM cards worth $65,000.
The thieves also took GPS tracking devices, which led authorities to Reygada, who was driving an Infiniti in Pompano Beach, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Another tracking device led police to Gonzalez, who was driving a Cadillac SUV on I-95 in Miami when he was pulled over, the newspaper reported.
According to a police report, Gonzalez said he acted as a lookout during the burglary, telling authorities, “I made a mistake. I should not have been there. I was just the driver. I don’t have a record.”
Police found four large garbage bags inside the SUV that contained the stolen devices, the Sun-Sentinel reported. There also were burglary tools and gloves, according to the arrest report.
