Breaking News: Suspect detained in Apopka Vehicle Burglary


Updating Breaking News: 6:30pm -

The alleged victim, Tonya Jenee Hampton, said that her house was broken into on Sunday around noon and that her roommate's bedroom door was broken, but nothing was missing from the room or the house.

Later that evening, a neighbor called to tell Hampton her car was parked sideways on the lawn. Hampton speculated that the person attempting to steal the car may not have known how to drive a stick-shift.

This afternoon Hampton's daughter was home and saw two young men sitting in the second car in the driveway. When she yelled at them, they got out and ran away.

She called Orange County Sheriff's Office who responded to the call, sent deputies, a chase unit and a K-9 unit in pursuit and later detained a suspect in the attempted burglary.

OCSO has not released the name of the suspect or verified an arrest was made.
