Broward County Florida Deputies are searching for a thief who, as seen in the released surveillance still, locked himself out of his getaway car during the crime. The theft occurred on November 10, 2012, at 3:45 a.m. at Lou’s Super Service Auto Repair, where the unidentified thief was seen on camera steeling batteries and loading them into his car. When he was done, the thief tried to open the passenger-side door, but found it locked. He went around to the driver’s-side door, but it was locked too. So he got a crowbar out of a nearby garbage truck, smashed the small, passengers’-side window, loaded two more batteries into the car, and drove away.

Police are searching for a black make in his 20s to early 30s, driving a gold Chevrolet —  with a busted small, passenger-side window. The video shows him wearing a blue shirt, blue jeans, a black belt, and dress shoes.

Anyone with information about this theft or the identity of the suspect is urged to contact Detective Alexandra Holmes at 954-985-1953 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-8477.
