Tips from the public led to the arrest of a Pembroke Pines man for stealing a pair of expensive sunglasses from the Outfitters store at Bud and Mary’s Marina in Islamorada.
It didn’t take long for tipsters to call in the identity of 33 year old Ivan Acebo after photos and a video were posted on social media and picked up by local media outlets. Deputy Caridad Bellon, the investigator on the case, said Acebo himself began calling the store and trying to pay for the sunglasses; then someone else called Sheriff’s dispatchers to say Acebo was the man depicted stealing them.
Deputy Bellon ran a check on his name and found he has a 2010 Black Chevy Silverado truck like the one captured by video surveillance as well.
A warrant was obtained for Acebo and on Thursday, he was arrested and booked into the Monroe County Detention Center on theft charges.
