Spanish Language TV Host Arrested for Allegedly Stealing Neighbor’s Patio Furniture

Frank Cairo, an award-winning Spanish language TV host, was arrested in Miami yesterday for allegedly stealing his neighbors’ patio furniture.

Two men were caught on a surveillance camera stealing several pieces of outdoor furniture from a screened-in patio in Doral, FL, on April 29. The owners of the residence were able to identify Cairo from the video. Cairo, whose real name is Ivan Valdes, now claims “there is a story” behind the video, despite the fact that he left a note on the neighbors’ door saying he had the furniture after he was identified (he claims he thought the house was abandoned, according to Miami’s WSVN).

Cairo told reporters outside the Doral police station yesterday that he had no need to steal “two chairs from Kmart” because he makes upwards of half a million dollars a year. TVSpy has the video.
