Thief sets off firecrackers at Dadeland Mall jewelry store to steal watch


SPARKING PANIC - A thief who had asked to look at an expensive watch at Mayors Jewelers in Dadeland Mall set off firecrackers, distracting the staff long enough to run off with the timepiece. No one was hurt.

An Instagram user posted a video showing a few dozen shoppers standing outside the shopping center, which closed at 7 p.m. as scheduled.

As a sixers fan I do not respect this Heat team whatsoever! They suck plain and simple! All they did the past 3 games was try to hurt the sixers players! Just a bunch of goons. The team should be gutted next season! Get ready to #TrustTheProcess yall

Whiteside has gotta go. I would hate to see them let him go but i would kill myself if we made the playoffs next year and he played the exact way. Doesn’t play with passion anymore. He hasn’t in a while. Even Shaq said he hates watching him play, Might as well try and get someone worthy for him while we still can. Still a great season.

Keep Dragic olynic and Ellington and everyone else need to go. The Sixers had a bunch of nobody take it to the heat. That's embarrassing. Their backup point guard Sarc and Covington took it to the heat

Awesome to watch the Sixers win a playoff series!The Miami Heat is eliminated from the NBA playoffs, as Miami falls to the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 5 of their series 104-91. The 76ers win the series 4-1. They won 10 games just 2 yrs ago -56 total games the previous 3 yrs -Tonight they won their 56th game this season -First playoff series win for the @sixers in 6 years #TrustTheProcess #heretheycome #philaunite

Trade whiteside, that’s a must! He’s on big money and his out put since his deal is terrible! I’d be trading dragic to, not consistent whatsoever.

MVP is Embiid and his defense..Took Wade and Dragic out of their game and unable to drive at will like the 2nd game they won of us......Embiid also played like a Stud on offense and under control....Simmons and Embiid only in their First year already look like Superstars....gonna be Scary when they reach their ceiling

Frustrating end to an equally frustrating season...although I hoped these guys would lock in when it came to the playoffs and maybe steal at least a first round series, they just showed they are exactly the same team they were during the season...no consistency, horrible on the road and in the 2nd half of games... Whiteside was a no show all year...but I think Spo had a lot to do with that... oh well as I have been since the first season...let’s try it again next year...

Miami Heat.... The team of rejects lol.. JV over whiteside any day. Miami needs to let go of Whiteside and he should go shine Khalids shoes. What a crap team.

Sorry , we're not lucky this year.WHITESIDE NEED TO TRADE HIM.BOSH need to hire back and LeBron James so WADE will stay.back to normal game..

Hassan Whiteside is a great story working his way into a position to have such a contract, but with that contract comes a responsibility to be ready physically and mentally and improve your game and show heart and a verve for competition. If he is even remotely comfortable with where he is at as an NBA pro after that playoff performance, and doesnt come back to camp next year a far far far more engaged and improved player... he has to be traded for ANYTHING, straight OUTTA there for a matching Salary or a bad contract, but at least someone with a Pulse on the court and at least a thirst to compete cause I cant see a single NBA team excited by the thought... he could be there new centre. So we are taking guys like Joakim Noah / Batum / Loul Deng / Bismack Biyombo / Chandler Parsons / Evan Turner / Its THAT BAD.

It's a good ride for the season and Round 1 Playoffs.. Give credit to Philadelphia as they played much more aggressive and hunger. We just run out of gas and could not compete with the young and much atlethic Sixers. We'll be back next year and hopefully with some significant moves in the off-season. #HeatNation

Let’s see... never used Babbitt or Haslem, Whiteside hasn’t been the same since the big money, same more James Johnson and Tyler Johnson... Giving Waiters a big contract was not was not a good idea.... #IDontTrustTheCultureRightNow #DontRetireDwyaneWade*

Dragic, olynk, Winslow only players who showed up to play every game this series... wade should be ashamed of himself.. whiteside idk what happened he’s just a crybaby who fouls 2 minutes in and sits the entire game definitely not worth the contract he signed anymore .. what a shame we coulda beat philly but oh well #heatlifer

That's ok heat nation we have Dion waiters next season and we have a new heat.sure Coach Eric Spo will trade Hassan WHITESIDE.and we have D.WADE my idol and your idol too.

Proud of this team and D. Wade. Been watching him for the past 14 years and hopefully this wasn't the last time. On the bright side, Winslow's growth this series was an encouraging sign.

Thank you miami heat!! This loss made me a stronger heat fan!! I still believe on our team. It was a roller coaster emotions so much love and respect for this team!! #HeatLifer #HeatNation

Feel bad for my Miami Heat. Congratulations, Philadelphia 76ers! I hope this serves as a wake up call for us to make major changes in the coaching staff and roster. David Fizdale could make a good coach. Explore deals for Whiteside. We also gotta make a run at coveted free agents (LeBron please). On to the next season! We’ll come back stronger than ever! #HeatNation #HeatAllDay #WhiteHot #HeatLifer

all u guys do know is talk thrash about the heat. f u really r heat fans u will support the team no matter what. because win or lose i know that all members of miami heat organization is doing evrything to give us a wonderful games each and evry season. i know that we will be back there someday we just have to keep on supporting them.. #heatlifer #dwade3

Winslow is growing up, jrich is becoming a better 2 ways player, Tyler Johnson is still developing, dragic, James johnson, and onelyx showed up this series. DWADE did his thing, but he can't save us like he used to. Where the f was whiteside???? Dude played the worst game of his basketball career this series.

Everyone was on Whiteside D said it from the beginning a soon as he gets paid it's over . The heat played well for what we have. but now Whiteside contract ain't worth the minimum . And he has no Value . Impossible to trade we Fukt

honestly was depressed watching the second half, seeing all of those bricked shots and fouls, being down by almost 20. I'm glad we at least tried in the last quarter, cut it to 9. I could name a bunch of reasons why we lost today, but I'm not going to cuz that would depress me more. Thank you heat for giving me something I enjoy watching, bringing Wade back to the team and overall a great season. Wade if this was ur last game, thank you for all the good memories. I knew I had to face this day eventually. It was a hell of a ride man. Miami will be back stronger next year, I know it. I can't wait to see how it unfolds. Thank you Miami 💯

Forever proud to be a Miami Heat fan! Let's take a break, make some team adjustments, and look forward to the next year! Thanks for a great season, Miami Heat!

Thank you for a great season Miami Heat!!! Max contract will be handed to King James and DeAndre Jordan 😂😂😂🤞🤞🤞🔥🔥🔥 We will be back next season!!! Dwyane Wade pls dont raise that jersey yet!!!! You still got it!!!!! Until next season!! 🤟🤟🤟

Heat fan forever and always but we got some rebuilding to do fellas. Wade my favorite player might retire but man you had one hell of a career! #Heatnation #Wadecounty 4 life!

Pathetic effort, play last game with no heart , no sense of urgent ,no aggressive, for all Heat fans don't waste time been sad ,they simply don't care ,they rich and there's vacations start tonight, so why we should , Just one more trash game

Hassan whiteside is the worse center in the NBA he is very clumsy

I am so sick of Miami Heat and their play.. no defense.. no shooting. No FT .. and foul game.. and Whiteside better to be in WNBA. 76Ears deserved - this is coming from Miami Heat Fan

Where's the guy that's gonna blame the refs for getting waxed 4 games to 1

GG Miami a lot of work will go into the off season next year. Hopefully we can make some moves and hope for a better result next year.

Spolestra about to cost us the game in the 3rd quarter again. Why’s this guy so horrible with adjustments, there’s no reason why Josh Richardson should be on Sarić.

I hope y’all are proud of your team!#Dirty👏🏽👎🏽

Everyone blames the coach. If he doesn't play someone, he gets blamed. If he plays that player and he doesn't perform, he gets blamed. DWade can't save us, he's 36 years old. J Rich, Dragic and TJ all playing with injuries. Playing against a young, fast and healthy team, this series is not winnable with the way the Heat have been playing all season long.Trade some players and get younger, more reliable players.

Time to blow this team up. Keep dragic waiters and wade for sure if he wants to come back. Get rid of Whiteside 93 million contract.

Whiteside looks like he suffering from depression

Whiteside is the baddest player on this team in the playoff! It is unbelievable how much little effort he is putting on the floor. But it is whatever....good season Miami! At least we made the playoff this season...love watching the physical games in this series.

He cost us this game when he didn’t have the team loose to Toronto! Really?!?! Win and play Philly or loose and play Boston. He’s an idiot!

New head coach please! This guy could only win with Lebron on the team.

only D-wade..is untouchable in this team....Trade them all..stop the DRAMA...we aint going nowhere in this line-up..

Spo is still mad about Hassan calling him out. Spo deserved to be fired

Please keep Wade and send Whiteside to the shower.

Were tied no more! Well its a good ride this season though. I hope we sent off our trash player Whiteside even for a 5th round pick

We're not good enough. Make some moves quickly otherwise we run the risk of being as irrelevant as they used to be

Whiteside is a joke, so soft. He’s pretty good at snapchat tho

This is not a good team I'd rather see them tank than see them trashed on postseason.

Joe Johnson with the worst timing fouls of round 1 and we over paid Whiteside. I’ve been saying he’s not worth it since they created that overpriced contract we need to trade him and free some cap. Even Winslow had some upgrades during round 1 that I was surprised to see. First round 1 elimination since 2010. I am disappointed. Fought so game and couldn’t seem to clutch quarter 4. This is not the heat I know. 76ers wanted it more.

I’m sorry if I’m about to sound doubtful. It’s been a pleasure heat fans and all of you need to thank d wade for everything. Now watch our time is almost here

Whiteside lazy,clummsy &soft....has become detrimental for the team.....PLEASE GET RID OF HIM & HIS BIG NOT EARNED CONTRACT!!!

Amazing how ya love when they’re winning and hate ‘m when they’re not.They are just humans with or without talent.

This is not a championship roster. They need to restructure after this season. Certain players need to go.

Whiteside has been nothing but TRASH! He better get traded or dismissed, whatwver it takes but he has to go.

US National Weather Service Key West Florida

Big Pine Key Wildfire Update - 7 PM: the fire remains 50% contained with around 100 acres burned.Big Pine Key Brush Fire Update 7 p.m.

MAP: The affected area of the brush fire is inside the red box.

UPDATE: About 46 firefighters from seven agencies (Monroe County Fire Rescue, Key Largo Fire Department, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, Florida Forest Service and the Georgia Forestry Commission) worked all day on the Big Pine Key brush fire.

The fire remains at 50 percent containment, with about 100 acres burned. Fire fighters spent Tuesday putting out hot spots and conducting protective measures around 30 homes that were identified as being in the affected area that is a combination of rural, wooded areas and residences.

Crews also created more fire break barriers with specialized vehicles called bombardiers. Other crews did some mop-up duty. This involves making a fire safe and reducing residual smoke by raking burning embers and/or spraying water on them.

A helicopter crew contracted by the federal government also made air drops with about 800 gallons of water per drop.
Crews will work Tuesday night and monitor a weather front that is expected to pass through around 3 a.m.

There are still prime conditions for fire in the area due to excessive debris – and dead and dry vegetation – from Hurricane Irma, as well as hot temperatures, shifting winds and a lack of rain.

Big Pine Key Wildfire Update - 7 PM: the fire remains 50% contained with around 100 acres burned.

Miami Heat

D. Wade has arrived for Game 5 with a message... ...


Comment on Facebook

The message is "3" He got 3 rings and those kids from Philly acting like they are champs already. #smh

The league already know who they want to win out of this series and thats Philadelphia. Embid travels when he tries to dribble but they don't call it, they call fouls on the heat when they get a momentum. The refs are not going to allow wade to be wade..

Why is olynyk in the game he moves in slow motion and the offense slows down..put haslem in for defense....wth are yall doing heat staff??

Why so many 67ers fans on here it's for the heat fans...they trolling

Wade in tunnel vision mode, he’s definitely going in his bag tonight and laying everything out on the line tonight. Expect a huge game from D.Wade tonight

The heat did not go into tanking ...the Sixers did... And that is why I respect the heat

Wade looks like hes gots 2 or 3 more years left. Were talking about a guy that said hes board when hes not playing. He Loves the game and still has Game.

Coach you should have put whiteside back in philly is not small 4- 6"10 players spo that's suicidal and you all ways fall for it

Él jugará hoy para ganar...sabe que no hay mañana...espero que Whiteside entienda él mensaje debe jugar con coraje y energia...no debe dejar intimidarse de Embiid.,.él sólo es otro jugador como él. como Winslow que lo enfrentó con gallardía...arriba Heat

I got yer message ...right here! Here's yer message! GO SIXERS!

Please knock Embiid out for me please

Let's go heat! True fans never quit...no matter what! We got this! 💪👍 #WhiteHot 🔥🔥🔥

Yea spo is betting on the heat to lose. What a terrible coach..

Heres my halftime breakdown. 1)The refs are getting the heat in foul trouble so they can't be aggressive. 2) Tyler Johnson keeps getting beat off the dribble 3) the refs are not allowing Richardson to get in the game thats why they keep hitting him with fouls..they know he is a key defender and spark. 4) olynyk moves in slow motion like he playing in LA fitness. 5) the refs are not giving Wade foul calls. 6) the heat is allowing Philadelphia's defense to slow them down. 7) they need to play haslem because he's known for playing great defense on bigger and taller players( Embid)

Great season but we lack major offense on this team. Wade needs to come back for one more season, Riley needs to throw the house at Kawhi this off-season. Love the way Justise has developed, he needs to work on that 3pt during summer.

please back to miami for game 6!!!!!!!!!! Go miami!!!!!!!!!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Wait for that great second half choke from miami. Its over soon

Bad coaching not knowing who to put in the gamr during crunch time

Lets gooo lets make it win for this time.... Steel i dont loose my fate that we can make to the second round of this playoffs. Gooo MAIMI💪💪💪

Spo you are so frustrating! Play whiteside, we are gojng to get killed on the boards and in the paint again. Just play him if he fouls out so be it, ffs!

No EXCUSES.. no glorifying mediocrity.. Miami must go out and win

I can’t wait for tonight’s game! Let’s GO HEAT ☄️🔥💪🏽

Let’s go guys!! My Miami Heat knows victory, can‘t wait to see what you guys will accomplish tonight. Let’s go H-E-A-T!!!!

Everybody needs to step up, stop relying on DWade and rely on each other instead, trust each other and play team basketball, everybody must do their part offensively and defensively and need a great teamwork or team effort out there.

Tyler johnson gets beat of the dribble alot....whiteside needs to make Embid go to his weak hand on the dribble....like i said before the refs are going to decide the game, fouls they don't normally call they will call

I hope Nikola gets traded, I am sick of him falling to the floor getting embarrassed on defense

Vuc is a nice guy and he puts up solid numbers. But it is necessary to trade him. Same with Evan. Both have some value to get something in return. Most likely future picks. Now they have to rebuild the rebuild.

Please stop posting this embarrassing stuff. These stats are horrible. Get a new owner or new management that actually cares and will pay attention to the team. Not just show up in a suit. #firealexmartins

In other news... Ya'll still dumb for trading Victor Oladipo

Stop posting this stuff, please 😂👎🏾👎🏾 In fact, shut down the account until we hire a coach, and figure out where we will be in the draft lottery. We're trying to FORGET this past season 🤦🏾‍♂️

Kinda hoping that said 👋🏻 bye Bis

Look out, Hakeem Olajuwon, Biz is coming for your record 😂👌

Magic is just embarrassing themselves with those posts, how about some news on coaching rumors?

Just stop. There was absolutely nothing of this season to be glorified. This was one of (if not the worst) season in the history of the Magic. Shut this BS down now!!

Please stop. This team is in terrible financial position with the cap due to Bis’ contract. Stop rubbing this in your paying customers and fans faces. Just stop. - All Magic Fans

Just stop please. All that money wasted

Can't stand you bis!!! Well as a player you suk

You guys sux!!

Dump Devoss. They are almost as embarrassing as Betsy...almost. 😆

Still mad we traded oladipo for nothing and now he is balling in Indy smh also read that as bye biz 😂

Man these posts are sad... lol... I know you gotta post something, but man these just further show how bad we are 😑

We need the "bye Bis"

He's a SCRUB!!!! Wasted money on a guy that a good playoff series!! Yet another, in a long line of dumb signings by the Orlando Magic.

Bye Bis 👋🏼

Kelly Nichols-Husted something tells me that this may be the last time you see both of them in an NBA game

Embiid's coaches and refs are babying him Embiid you are not the best defense player you just have the refs on your side stop fooling yourself your body is not made for this you're to fragile body can't hold up BSimmons is far better than you
