Two Crimes – Same Suspects?
Deputies reported two separate incidents involving what may be the same suspects along the 5500 and 5300 blocks of Ocean View Boulevard on the afternoon of Tuesday, May 17.
A resident reported that while sitting in her home and looking out her kitchen window, she saw a man run out of her garage and get into a late model, dark blue Honda Civic, noting that three other individuals were visible inside the car. Taken from the garage was a bag containing sneakers and a sweatshirt.
While conducting this investigation, deputies were approached by a neighbor, who reported that while walking along Ocean View Boulevard, someone driving a late model, dark blue Honda Civic threw a package out of the vehicle and sped away. Deputies responded to the location and found a package at the 5500 block of Ocean View Boulevard addressed to a residence in the 5300 block of the same street. The resident of the address noted that she had been expecting a package and had not realized that it had been taken from her porch.
The package was booked into evidence and fingerprinted as the vehicle and suspects matched the description of the garage burglary that had been reported just moments earlier nearby.
