A Tavernier man is in jail after a home surveillance system caught him stealing rods and reels from a storage shed at a Key Largo residence.
Deputy Titus Hodges responded to a home on South Ocean Shores Drive in Key Largo March 19th. The homeowner wanted to report over $5,000 worth of rods and reels and a power drill stolen from his storage shed. He told the deputy he knew the man who stole his property.
The victim said he had hired someone to do work on his property. He said the man he hired had hired a helper, 48 year old Sergio Yero. When he found his property missing, the victim reviewed footage from his surveillance camera. On the video, he saw Yero breaking a lock on the shed, taking his property from the shed and putting it into a black Chevrolet truck.
A warrant was issued for Yero and on Sunday he was arrested. He was booked into jail on charges of burglary and grand theft.
