DeBary, FL – Volusia County deputies are looking for three men who busted into a woman’s sport utility vehicle, took her credit cards and went on a shopping spree.
The Sheriff’s Office says the 62-year-old victim – a DeBary resident – was walking her dog Wednesday at Gateway Park in DeBary when she saw the men in her SUV and they took off with her wallet after going through the purse she had left inside.
According to the VCSO Facebook page, the suspects were in another SUV, backing it up next to the woman’s vehicle just before getting inside.
“As she approached her vehicle carrying her key fob, her car doors automatically unlocked and she observed a male exit the SUV, open her driver side door, shut it, then jump into the SUV as it quickly drove away,” said the Facebook post.
Deputies tell us the woman had left her purse on the floorboard, covered in a blanket, just before walking her dog.
Despite her calling VCSO immediately to report what happened, the men were still able to use her cards at a Target in Orange City. Security cameras in the store caught the men inside, leading to the images in this story.
VCSO is asking anyone with information on these men to call 386-668-3830 or email MCox@vcso.us concerning case 18-13373. Those who want to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 888-277-8477 or click here to possibly be eligible for a cash reward.
