Four Found Sleeping In Car After Burglary

The suspects accused of stealing nearly $10,000 worth of equipment, including 22 chainsaws, according to the Martin County Sheriff's Office.
Surveillance video from the store showed a white van with one wheel that was a different color than the others. The video also showed two men entering the store and removing items.
Deputies said they later found the van abandoned at Harbor Bay Plaza in Sewalls Point. The suspects were found sleeping in a nearby Jaguar and taken into custody.
Martin County sheriff's deputies arrested Armando Garcia and Abel Lahera, both of Miami; Emilio Moreira, of Hialeah; and Jorge Amador, of Cutler Bay.
According to the arrest affidavit, one of the suspects told investigators that they burglarized the store, parked the van in a parking lot and left in the Jaguar. It stated that they planned to wait a few hours and then blend in with the morning traffic.
Stuart Lawn & Garden posted this sign outside the store following Tuesday's burglary.
