Two Miami residents were arrested Wednesday after an employee of the CVS Pharmacy in Islamorada saw them stealing storage containers from behind the store.
The witness said she saw 20 year old Michel Galindo and 19 year old Nicole Escorcia of Miami loading the containers into the back of their truck. She called the Sheriff’s Office and gave dispatchers a description of the truck – a green colored Dodge with some kind of wooden camper on the back.
Detective Sgt. Mark Coleman spotted the truck at 5:30 p.m. northbound at the 87 mile marker. He pulled it over as back up deputies arrived.
One hundred containers were found in the back of the truck. All of the containers had the CVS logon on them. The containers have a value of $75 each.
The witness identified the two as the people she saw stealing the containers. Escorcia and Galindo were both arrested. They were charged with grand theft and they were booked into jail.
