Police: Kissimmee family involved $8K theft
Adults arrested on charges of grand theft
Kissimmee police have arrested a family after two teenagers broke into a home and stole $8,000 worth of property--and the teens' family didn't report anything.
Kissimmee police said the burglary occurred on Jan. 13 at their condo on Caravelle Circle, while the victims were on vacation from Venezuela.
The victims told officers that when they returned, they noticed the screen back door had been damaged and $8,000 worth of items were stolen, including an Apple iPad.
Detectives said that they believe two teenaged family members jumped the wall to the gated complex and committed the burglary.
According to deputies, the iPad was tracked and found the account information for the iPad had been changed, leading them to Mayra Lopez, 39 and her boyfriend, Felix Perez.
"Downloading new information on iPad, you have to change the user info, therefore, it sent an email to the existing user, so we were able to track the iPad that way," said Stacie Miller of Kissimmee Police Department.
Some stolen items were recovered from her home and further investigation led detectives to discover more stolen items inside the home of Mayra’s sister, Migdalia Lopez, 42.
Mayra Lopez, Migdalia Lopez and Perez were charged with Grand Theft and taken to the Osceola County Jail where they are being held on bond.
The two juveniles were transported to the Orange County Juvenile Detention Center.
