Miami – A stolen car and the theft of 192 cases of beer and toilet paper recently blemished the record of a Miami man who recently told police officers he worked as a security guard, according to an arrest report.
Videos show Manuel Cevallos stealing beer and toilet paper from the Navarro Discount Pharmacy at 3105 NW 7th St. in Little Havana, Miami, Friday night and packing it into a green Chevrolet sports utility vehicle, according to police.
One video shows the store manager yelling at Cevallos: “Get a job!” And then Cevallos replied, “I don’t want to.”
Police officers with the Tactical Robbery Unit arrested Cevallos, 32, Saturday night near the intersection of Southwest 18th Avenue and West Flagler Street, near East Little Havana.
Records show Miami-Dade corrections officers booked Cevallos into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on Sunday morning. He faces charges of third-degree grand theft, two counts of petty theft, operating a car without tags and knowingly driving with a suspended license.
In Florida, security guards must have a Class D license Armed and unarmed security guards are required to complete 40 hours of training to operate. State records did not show Cevallos had a Class D license.
