5/23/2017 - Vehicle Burglaries, Winter Haven

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we gently would like to remind citizens – PLEASE lock your vehicles and keep all items out of view!
Winter Haven Police are once again reminding citizens that unlocked vehicles are an invitation to criminals who look for an easy opportunity. Since May 1, 2017 there have been 41 (forty-one) vehicle burglaries in the City of Winter Haven, 12 of those in one neighborhood. Of the 41, only 6 vehicles were locked. Those that were locked had items in plain view – a temptation too strong to pass up to a criminal.
Most vehicle burglaries are crimes of opportunity. The criminals look for the least amount of work to get anything of value, which is why flipping handles is the most common way this crime occurs. Among the items taken were wallets, purses, laptops, tablets, a handgun, cell phones and cash. We all must take that extra step to ensure our vehicles are secured, especially when we go in for the night. 
One other problem that is on the increase involves the push-button start vehicles. Leaving the fob inside of the cup holder, console or anywhere inside of the vehicle is an opportunity to have a stolen vehicle. A few of the vehicles in these latest burglaries had the fob inside, but thankfully these criminals were looking for the quick stash. However, there have been vehicles stolen from driveways after the fob was left inside.
Anyone who sees anything suspicious, especially during the overnight hours, such as someone walking into driveways, yards, between homes or apartment parking lots is asked to call 9-1-1 immediately. It takes everyone working together to prevent and also catch these thieves who continue to victimize citizens. 
If you have information on anyone committing these burglaries, please call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a CASH reward.

5/23/2017 - Vehicle Burglary, Circle B, Lakeland

On Monday, May 22, 2017, around 2:32 p.m., an unknown suspect(s) pried open and broke the window of a locked vehicle and removed a purse at Circle B Bar Reserve located at 4399 Winter Lake Road in Lakeland. A witness saw a dark gray car pull away from the victim’s vehicle and leave the area. 
(This is a great time to remind everyone – DON’T LEAVE YOUR PURSE IN YOUR VEHICLE! Thieves target areas such as parks, daycares, gyms, and other places where victims are known to do that)
The suspect(s) then used the victim’s MidFlorida debit card (which is shown in the video) on the same date around 2:44 p.m. at a Citgo gas station located at 2101 K-Ville Ave (CR 542) in Auburndale. The witness confirmed this is the same suspect car seen at Circle B. It appears to be a 2012 Chrysler 200 Super S, dark gray, with dark tinted windows, and chrome rims. The unknown female suspect, pumping the gas, has a large tattoo on her left calf.

Anyone able to identify the suspect or driver of the vehicle, please contact Detective Tan at 863-499-2400, email at atan@polksheriff.org , or call 863-298-6200.

5/22/2017 - Simmer on Gas Pump, Winter Haven

Skimmer Located In Gas Pump
Winter Haven Police have retrieved a skimming device that was placed inside a gas pump at the Citgo gas station located at the corner of First St and Central Ave. 
Approximately three weeks ago, a gas pump at the Circle K on the corner of Ave. K and First St S was found to have been tampered with, however the device had already been removed by the time law enforcement was aware. 
Citizens are reminded to check the security tape on the gas pumps when using pay-at-the-pump. Anyone who sees unusual marks, damage or missing or broken tape should report it to the store clerk immediately. Also, utilize pumps that are closest to the line of sight for the store. Outside lanes have limited visibility, therefore could be easier for someone to be concealed while installing a device.
