Three burglars smashed through the wall of a boot warehouse in Pompano Beach. Not only did investigators find the sledgehammer used, they also found the only things the burglars stole: a pair of boots.
In the released edited surveillance video, a four-door white sedan was seen dropping off two women and one man. The three are seen behind the warehouse wielding a sledgehammer for about an hour, officials said.
Once inside, the burglars tried smash an alarm bell to disable the security system. Then they ran around aimlessly before targeting a box containing a pair of boots valued at about $200.
The video ends with the three running away with the sledgehammer and boots. Carter said a search of the area yielded the sledgehammer and the box with the boots still inside.
