Two arrested in video machine thefts in six Broward cities

Wilton Manors Police Department received a report of a stolen video machine from Mickey’s 19th Hole Bar & Grill at 2735 N Dixie Hwy creating loss in the amount of approximately $3,500.  Suspect posed himself as a video repairman, showed a fake work order and removed the machine from the premises.  The suspect, Mark Block, arranged to sell the stolen machine to an undercover police officer for $3,200.  He was arrested and confessed to police that he had stolen eight additional video machines over the past couple weeks from bar establishments in Coral Springs, Davie, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, and Lighthouse Point. Further investigation identified a second suspect, John Rogan, who knowingly purchased the stolen video machines from Mark Block. Police arrested Rogan, and eight out of nine known stolen video machines were recovered from his residence. Subsequently, cases were cleared from several other jurisdictions.
