Hammocks police team arrests pair in stolen gas tanks case

Hammocks police team arrests pair in stolen gas tanks caseMembers of a six-man team of officers from the Miami-Dade Police Hammocks District earned co-honors as Officer of the Month for August following thefts of 135 propane gas tanks from nine locations in West Kendall, including several from Walgreens stores. As part of surveillance guided by potential hazards and national security, tracking devices were placed on outside tanks at different sites, resulting in activation of one that identified a moving vehicle northbound on SW 152nd Avenue at 1 a.m. on Aug. 11. The vehicle was stopped and two suspects arrested when 18 propane tanks were discovered in the vehicle. Honored at the Aug. 28 CAC meeting for their work in solving the case by Citizens Advisory Committee chair James Blough (far left) are (l-r) Sgt. Edgar Bermudez, Det. Daniel Zapata, Det. Devon Dolam, and Det. Romelio Martinez with Capt. Miguel Hernandez (rear). Not pictured are Det. Miguel Garcia and Det. Charles Castillo.
