Melissa Rodriguez was collecting seashells on the Hollywood, Florida beach hours after the last fireworks had dimmed on the Fourth of July when she realized her pants were missing. She had left her black jeans, wallet, and car keys on a lifeguard stand before walking to the water. When she turned around, she saw a man in a gray hoodie run off with them down Ocean Drive.

Rodriguez had become a victim of what appeared to be a string of Independence Day petty thefts on Hollywood Beach.

And, after accused robber Darwin Castillo was apprehended, police say he was wearing the very same black jeans he stole from her.
