Off-Duty Miami-Dade Officer Robbed While Watching Sunrise On The Beach

An off-duty Miami-Dade officer had her purse stolen Sunday morning while watching the sunrise with her boyfriend. 

Officer Jacquelyn Coello's purse contained her badge, personal gun and a magazine.

Coello had set her purse on the sand on the beach behind the Fountainbleau Hotel in Miami Beach before someone grabbed it, police say.

A witness told Coelle what happened, and although she and her boyfriend chased the thief, the pair wasn't able to catch him.

The officer's personal gun, police badge, Miami-Dade police identification card and a magazine round were inside the purse, along with her keys, driver's license, Social Security card and cellphone.

Police are searching for a man between 25 and 30 years old, about 150 pounds, and between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall with brown hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
