A man angry at his girlfriend smashed into her Miami jewelry store with his motorcycle, threatened suicide and nearly torched the place Sunday, according to police.
Police said they stopped Jaime Tojeiro, 39, from killing himself or burning down El Sol de Miami Joyeria, located at 3419 SW Eighth St.
According to Miami police, Tojeiro rammed a motorcycle through the jewelry store's front door. Police arrived about 8:20 p.m., soon after being notified by the store's silent alarm.
Tojeiro told police that he and his girlfriend, the shop's owner, had just broken up. His excuse for being inside, however, was more interesting: He was picking up his things.
Tojeiro then threatened police that he would burn the place down with himself inside, according to police spokesman Detective Willie Moreno. Tojeiro even stuffed a piece of cloth inside his motorcycle's gasoline tank and lit it ablaze.
Luckily for all, he quickly put it out, police reported. Tojeiro later surrendered himself to police, who reported no one was hurt during the ordeal.
