Two traveling thieves were arrested on Tuesday in connection to a series of thefts at Best Buys across Florida, deputies say.

The Indian River County Sheriff's Office (IRCSO) said Best Buy employees alerted deputies of two suspected shoplifters linked to a string of thefts from multiple locations. However, this time, deputies were waiting for 36-year-old Andrew Causa and 32-year-old Danielle Lorini.

Deputies waited outside the store until the two headed toward the parking lot. Body cam video provided by the sheriff's office shows the encounter between deputies and their suspects.

Video shows deputies trying to call Causa over. Instead, Causa tried running, but didn't make it far. Deputies caught up with him and wrestled him to the ground.

Once Causa was detained, the deputy approached the Jeep Lorini was in. In the video, the deputy drew his taser and told her to step out of the SUV. She was apprehended without issue.

Once the two suspects were arrested, the Best Buy employees can be seen thanking deputies for stopping the two thieves.

"You just don't know how happy this team is. They got us for $7,000, man," one employee said.

Another chimed in saying, "Between all across the other stores about $16,000-$17,000."

IRCSO said Lorini from Coral Springs was booked into the county jail for grand theft over $300, and Causa from Fort Lauderdale was booked for resisting an officer without violence, felony grand theft over $300, felony fist degree petit theft, controlled substance possession, and drug paraphernalia possession.
