Daytona Beach, FL – Two thieves caught in the act apparently stole around $20,000 worth of merchandise from a Daytona Beach boutique.
Messod Bendayan, the public information officer for the Daytona Beach Police Department, says DBPD was called to Bossy Boutique off of Aviation Center Parkway around 8 a.m. on July 3rd in reference to a shattered window at a business.
That call was made by another renter in that business center who noticed the shattered front window of the store.
According to the report, the reporting party called the renter of the Bossy Boutique and told her about the break-in. She was in Kissimmee at the time but she ended up driving out to Daytona Beach to deal with the burglary.
The reporting party, who works as a property manager at the All Aboard Storage, said they do have video surveillance on the property.
The footage they gave showed a black car driving up to the business around 3:15 that morning. Two suspects were seen leaving the car from the passenger side before they went up to the business and broke the glass window of the store.
While police investigated, the owner of the store contacted their security company, who sent someone out to provide the surveillance to the police department.
That video showed two males, dressed head to toe in light-colored jackets with black pants, grabbing merchandise off of the wall. Detectives now estimate that around $15,000 to $20,000 was stolen from the business.
This investigation is still ongoing, anyone with information is asked to call Detective Simone Alexander at 386-671-5218 or email them at AlexanderSimone@dbpd.us
