Islamorada Business burglaries under investigation


 Islamorada – Detectives say they are investigating two business burglaries in Islamorada which may be connected. One at an optical shop and one at a print shop next door, both located at the 81 mile marker of Highway U.S. One.

They are hoping the release of two photos from a surveillance camera will help the investigation. The camera caught suspects inside Tropical Optical, which was burglarized just before 11 p.m. on February 14th . The print shop -  Print Source of the Keys -  is believed to have been broken into sometime the night of the 17th.  Suspects took thousands of dollars worth of sunglasses and eye glasses from the optical shop; they took an office computer from the print shop.

In both cases, suspects forced entry through the front doors of the businesses.

Detective Yunier Galvez is lead investigator and anyone with information about this crime should contact him immediately at 305-853-3211. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys. If a tip to Crime Stoppers results in an arrest, the tipster would be eligible for a cash reward. Tipsters can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-346-TIPS or at www.tipsubmit.com.
