Authorities seek 2 they say stole motor parts, gear from 3 Dania businesses

Authorities are searching for a duo of thieves who hit three Dania Beach businesses in a row, taking thousands of dollars worth of generators, engine parts and other tools.

According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, the pair first struck the Jersey Dawg food truck at about 11 a.m. March 20. The food truck, which serves hot dogs, burgers and fries, was parked in the 1900 block of Tigertail Boulevard.

They reportedly arrived in a newer-model white Ford F-150 truck and swiped a generator with a red frame, valued at $2,200, the agency said. The generator had been secured to the food truck with padlocks that were cut, according to an incident report.

After that theft, the two men moved on to Sirocco Marine, also in the 1900 block of Tigertail Boulevard, where they pried open a front door and ransacked a storage area before running off with two Honda engine parts that were still in the box, the report said.
