Two suspects, Silvestre Romero, 28, of Hialeah, and Andres Amador, 30, of Homestead, who were wanted for a 2011 Southwest Ranches burglary are noww behind bars, the Broward Sheriff's Office announced last Wednesday, reports the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Surveillance video showed Amador getting out of a black Cadillac Escalade EXT pickup truck in the driveway of the home last June, holding a package under his arm and buzzing the call box at the gate, deputies said.
At the same time, the video captured Romero, 28, of Hialeah, and his cousin walking through the backyard wearing masks, gloves and a police badge while carrying handguns. After an alarm sounded when they broke a window, the duo fled - as did Amador, according to the investigative report.
Only six hours later, they were back at it agind: Surveillance video recorded the Romeros breaking a glass door to get inside, where they stole about $3,000 in cash, a stun gun and a watch, detectives said.
But before they could make their escape, a second alarm sounded and depuies respondedwhile they were still inside the home, according to the report.
The deputies reportedly noted the shattered back door then went around to the front of the house to wait for backup, unaware the Romeros were still inside.
That's when the allegeded banditos made their getaway and dashed into a nearby field under the cover of darkness.
But Silvestre Romero made a strategic error: He left his DNA-rich handgun behind, investigators said.
