A Miami man was charged Wednesday with stealing tools from a co-worker and pawning them.
The theft took place in June. The owner of the tools reported they were located in a bin at a Key Largo work site and included a Makita electric drill, Makita electric hammer drill and a Makita handheld grinder. A man who used to work for the company and was fired a few weeks previously was seen near the tools just prior to them going missing.
Detective Ian Barnett discovered the tools had been pawned at a Miami pawn shop. Pawn shop records showed the man who pawned them was the same ex-employee who’d been seen near the tools before they were stolen. He was identified in the pawn records as 28 year old Daniel Greenidge.
