Surveillance video captures robbery in Palm Beach Gardens

Posted at 7:38 PM, Jan 14, 2017

Palm Beach Gardens police are investigating an early morning robbery at an "iFixYouri" store located at PGA Boulevard and Prosperity Farms Road.

Surveillance video shows two men using a sledge hammer to break the glass front door.

"To see somebody have a complete lack of respect and disregard for other people's property is just mind-blowing," said Chris Johncke, the owner of iFixYouri. 

Surveillance video Johncke captured shows the men steal hundreds of dollars in cash from the register and run out with a trash bag full of screens and devices, including tablets, phones and MacBooks worth around $30,000.

"They know exactly what they were looking for," said Johncke. "They know exactly what they're taking." 

The business is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

"If it could happen to our business, it could really happen to anybody's business," said Johncke, who told us this is the third iFixYouri store broken into in a month and a half. "I'm starting to feel like I'm targeted," he added.

The stolen equipment contains unique markings on them, so if they are sold, it is likely they will be able to identify the items.
