VCSO : Man With Eyelid Tattoos Wanted For Stealing Credit Cards In DeBary

By on April 19, 2018 in WNDB News

DeBary, FL – Deputies are searching for a man with eyelid tattoos after they say the man and his son racked up more than $5,000 in fraudulent charges after breaking into a Jeep outside the DeBary Library and stealing a victim’s credit cards.

Volusia County Sheriff’s Office (VCSO) says the car break-in occurred on April 10 in the parking lot of the DeBary Library, located at 200 N. Charles R. Beall Blvd. The victim says he parked the Jeep at the library that morning, came back to the Jeep that night, and found the driver’s door unlocked. His driver’s license, cash, and several bank cards were missing.

Deputies say the stolen cards had been used several times at a two Chevrons, Racetrac, Sunoco, Walmart, AAA Gun & Pawn, Value Pawn & Jewelry, and Cash America. The charges on the cards were for items including cigarettes, a DVD player, a laptop, and gold chain necklaces. The total amount of the fraudulent charges was $5,361.94.

An employee at one of the stores tipped deputies off that a customer with eyelid tattoos made one of the fraudulent purchases. Fingerprints and surveillance video were obtained from all of the stores where the stolen credit cards were used, and officials used a Licence Plate Reader system to track down the suspects’ vehicle, a 2004 Cadillac.

VCSO says the Cadillac was the same vehicle from a 2017 traffic stop. The two suspects were identified as 44-year-old William Clark, of Orlando, and his son, 19-year-old Anthony Medina, of Orange City.

Both men are charged with fraudulent use of ID and fraudulent use of a credit card, and Clark faces an additional charge of burglary. Medina was arrested in Seminole County on Monday, and he was later released after posting $10,000 bail.

“Really, it was a combination of good detective work, a lot of driving, technology, and the distinct tattoo that this guy had on his eyelids that ended up leading to the criminal charges,” says Andrew Gant, Public Information Officer for VCSO.

Deputies are asking for the public’s help in finding Clark, and they believe he could be driving the silver 2004 Cadillac four-door sedan with Florida tag 614-8UR.
