NORTH MIAMI, FLA. (WSVN) – Police are searching for a man and a woman who, they said, have been stealing packages from the front porches of homes throughout northern Miami-Dade County.
The man was seen on video wearing a dark-colored tank top pulling up to multiple homes in a dark Jeep Compass and leaving with packages intended for other people.
The man has targeted homes in North Miami, Miami Shores and Northeast Miami-Dade, typically along Northeast 122nd Street.
One of the packages he took on Thursday was from Isabelle Beekhuizen’s North Miami home, and it contained items that are irreplaceable.
“My newborn pictures, yeah, my photo album,” she said. “It even had a little lock of hair in there. I just have a newborn son. I was going to show those pictures to my son, obviously, when he grew up. It has pictures of his great grandparents, and everything was lost. It’s gone.”
The thief has a large tattoo of a marijuana leaf near his right shoulder and a gun tattoo close to his elbow.
“You can’t just take things from people’s homes,” Beekhuizen said. “Those are things that people need. You can’t just steal things from people.”
7News showed neighbor Rodney Paramore his first look of the people who took his packages.
“He’s very bold,” he said. “He don’t care about his own life or his own freedom. He just do what he want to do and think it’s OK.”
Another repeat offender could be seen taking packages in Miami’s Morningside neighborhood. She walked away with wedding presents at one home and a meal delivery at another before she tumbles to the ground.
The woman was wearing a head wrap when she took a person’s meal delivery.
