Two men arrested for fishing gear thefts following Sheriff’s Office investigation

Two Miami-Dade County men were arrested Saturday for stealing fishing rods in Monroe County following an investigation by Sheriff’s Office Detectives.

Ryan Alexander Oliu, 20, of Homestead, Florida, and Daniel Aleman, 18, of Miami, Florida, were both charged with multiple counts of burglary and grand theft.

The Sheriff’s Office has been investigating thefts of fishing rods primarily in the Middle Keys this month with Aleman and Oliu as suspects. A be-on-the-lookout was issued for a Honda sedan in relation to the investigation and the Sheriff’s Office stopped the vehicle at approximately 12 a.m. Saturday on U.S. 1.

The two suspects subsequently admitted to fishing rod thefts in Monroe County.

The investigation is ongoing. Additional charges as well as more arrests may be pending.
