An additional adult, not yet identified by APD, will also be charged with multiple counts of burglary. Apopka Detectives served a search warrant and recovered thousands of dollars’ worth of property along with a Glock handgun. When the offenders in this case were interviewed, they admitted to trying to enter up to 300 vehicles during the course of their crime spree, but only targeted and burglarized those vehicles that were unlocked.

The arrests came with the assistance of attentive homeowners. The three suspects were observed on a home security surveillance system and identified through diligent police work and investigation.

The Apopka Police Department wants to remind residents to follow these simple crime prevention tips:

  • Lock vehicles at all times.
  • Keep change and valuables from view.
  • Take laptop computers, cell phones, purses, and wallets into the home, and do not leave them in a vehicle.
  • Mark items with an owner applied number or record the item’s serial number, if available.
  • Know your neighbors. A community that is involved in crime prevention is less a target of crime.
  • Immediately call 911 to report any suspicious activity.

Anyone with questions or needing more information should call the Apopka Police Department’s public education unit at 407-703-1771.
