Cash Register Crook Caught on Camera
By: Staff Reports
For Alexandro Pedron, the third time was a charm.
But when the Delray Beach man tried to steal the fourth cash register from a Walgreens recently, he was caught.
Pedron, 43, was charged Friday with three counts of grand theft and one count of petty theft. He was being held at the Palm Beach Jail on $9,000 bond.
Police said Pedron’s thefts date back to April and ended Friday, police say. On three dates in April and May, he stole a cash register or two cash drawers, police said. Detectives say he walked into each store, wandered around until no employees were near the cosmetics area cash register, quickly disconnected the register or cash drawer and walked out of the store.
Surveillance video shows him taking a cash register and two cash drawers on three separate occasions.
On April 26, he targeted a Walgreens at 10 S. Congress Ave. and hit the same store again at 1:23 p.m. May 16. Two days later, at 1:30 p.m. on May 18, he committed the same crime at the Walgreens at 4999 W. Atlantic Ave.
