On June 23, BSO Dania Beach detectives arrested Orlando Suarez Perez in the theft of a John Deere lawnmower. The mower had been taken a few days earlier from the carport of a Dania Beach home and was listed on OfferUp before the owner could even file an incident report.

BSO Detective Matthew Goodnow made arrangements to meet the seller at McDonald’s at 5530 S. State Road 7 in Hollywood where Perez showed up with the victim’s mower. The victim was able to confirm with “100 percent” certainty that the stolen mower was his based on distinctive markings he had documented.

Perez, who was taken into custody by BSO Detective German Bickbau, is facing six charges including grand theft, possession of a controlled substance and driving with a suspended license. Perez was released on bond.
