DEERFIELD BEACH (CBSMiami) – A teen is under arrest after police say he was captured on surveillance stealing pricey electronic equipment from an elementary school.

Investigators said surveillance video showed someone stealing more than $20,000 worth of electronics from Deerfield Park Elementary School.

After seeing the video, BSO investigators said someone contacted Crime Stoppers and identified the person seen in the video as 18-year-old Solomon Shiver.

Dani Moschella, with BSO said, "Luckily an astute viewer saw this, called Crime Stoppers, made an anonymous tip and gave detectives that key piece of information which was that person's name. They independently confirmed it was him and charged him with these crimes."

Now the teen faces charges of grand theft and burglary, but detectives say he's not cooperating with investigators and they still don't know where the stolen equipment is.

"If anyone knows where this pricy equipment is, we'd like to know. Please call crimestoppers again," said Moschella.

If you have any information on that, you can call Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS.
