Feb 14, 2013 (Sun Sentinel - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
News reports led Hollywood Police to a shoplifting suspect who was caught on camera stealing cameras from a popular Hollywood bicycle shop on Feb. 6, according to the shop owner.
Thomas Ingram, 29, was recognized from surveillance videos.
Cameras recorded him walking into the Big Wheel Cycles shop at 7035 Taft Street, cutting a display stand security cable and walking out with a couple of GoPro cameras valued at $400 each, store owner Anthony Chin said.
"A pawn shop actually bought the cameras," he said. "I'm sure we're going to get them back but we're just waiting for the [investigation] process to go through."
Ingram is being held on a $17,500 bond for two counts of grand theft, two counts of giving false ownership information for pawned merchandise, and two counts of dealing in stolen property. He was already on probation for another burglary in September, according to Broward jail records.
