$20K Stolen In Brazen Miami Hotel Room Theft
The man ransacked the room and found $1,800 in cash and $10,000 in jewelry. He stowed the loot and some other items -- including an iPad and credit cards -- in a suitcase. Then he waltzed away with the bounty.
This is a good reminder that hotel rooms can easily be compromised. While this perp found a way to casually stroll in and out, thieves can easily pick door locks -- even the ones with plastic key cards that used to seem so innovative. And hotel safes aren't as secure as one might hope. When you're in the lobby or out and about, be sure to keep your hotel room number to yourself so would-be thieves can't target you. In fact, whenever possible, the best thing to do is to just leave your valuables at home. It's just never a good idea to attract too much attention.
