CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – Police said they nabbed a man accused of taking an 18-year-old woman out on a date while his accomplice broke into her home, stealing $4,300 worth of her property.
“She was betrayed, she was set up,” Lt. Joe McHugh of the Coral Springs Police Department told NBCMiami.com.
Police said Anthony Maldanado, 18, had a friend rob the 18-year-old woman's home while the two met for lunch at a nearby restaurant.
He was taken into custody without incident on charges of residential burglary and grand theft and taken to Miami-Dade County Jail, where he later posted $4,500 bond, police said.
According to police, Maldanado, using the alias “Florenciano Valentino,” met Kelley Galbraith, 18, at a party a week before they went out to lunch at an Applebee’s in Coral Springs on Feb. 25. While they were on their date, Maldanado’s partner broke into Galbraith’s house through a window and stole “several high-value items,” police said.
The woman said that before he left Applebee’s, Maldanado stole her cell phone and left her with the bill, police added.
