A defibrillator was stolen from a Coral Springs hotel and police are hoping this video will help find the culprit.
On Friday August 15, between 12:45 and 1:30 a.m., video surveillance shows a man walking into the lobby of the Marriott Hotel in Heron Bay. The suspect removed the Powerheart AED G3 defibrillator from its wall mount in the gym and replaced the device with a gym weight to prevent the alarm from sounding.
Police said it was discovered missing around 1:30 a.m.
A defibrillator is an electrical device that provides a shock to the heart when there is a life-threatening arrhythmia present and retails around $1,500 to $1,600.
If anyone recognizes this man, they are asked to contact Detective Chris Bosworth at 954-346-1295.
