Video: Crook smashes rock through SW Miami-Dade dry cleaners’ door before stealing cash, clothes


Surveillance video captured a crook using a rock to smash his way into a Southwest Miami-Dade dry cleaner before he stole cash from the register and clothing from inside.

The owners of Betto’s Cleaners on Southwest Lindgren Road and 84th Street were alerted to the break-in, Friday morning.

Lourdes Castendas, one of the owners, said they found the register cleaned out and shards of glass outside the front door, which had been forced open.

“Money, broke my machine, clothes, a lot of clothes, but I have a customer tell me she’s missing five shirts. You have to pay back the shirts,” she said.

Around $3,000 were taken from the family-owned dry cleaners, which has been in business for more than a decade.

If you have any information on this burglary, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward of up to $5,000.
