posted by Jessi Minneci - 

A North Miami Beach business owner says a thief smashed their way into his Boost Mobile store and took off with nearly 20 cellphones.

George Mohama discovered on Sunday morning that a thief had broken into his store near Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 135th Street.

Mohama said the pricey theft took place at around 2:45 a.m. and was over in less than a minute.

The business owner said the thief broke in by throwing a brick through the front window. He then made his way to where the merchandise was stored.

A surveillance camera captured the perpetrator as he stopped at a display before sprinting to the back. Another camera shows him putting phone after phone un a bag and running away.

The business owner said the burglar stole about $8,000 in merchandise.

Now, as police investigate this cellphone heist, the business owner is hoping clear surveillance video will find this crook and put an end to his crime spree.

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 $1,000 reward.
