Home, cars burglarized in Winter Park, police say

Police remind residents to stay vigilant


WINTER PARK, Fla. – Police are reminding residents to stay vigilant after a home and four cars in Winter Park were burglarized Wednesday. 

Winter Park Police said the four car burglaries  were reported sometime between late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning on Lake Sue Avenue, Winchester Drive, Lee Road and Brandywine Drive.

Three of the vehicles were unlocked when they were burglarized and the fourth, a blue early 2000s model Acura hatchback, was stolen.

Around noon Wednesday, a man reported two suspicious vehicles near his home on Azalea Avenue and called police after one of the men who had been lurking near the vehicles rang his doorbell and asked if he wanted landscaping, according to a news release.

Police said they believe that the two vehicles were the same ones that were seen outside when someone broke into a home around 1:15 p.m. Wednesday on the 1800 block of Magnolia Avenue. 

The vehicles are described as a silver late-model BMW sedan and a black Mercedes sedan.

"Please continue to be vigilant, lock your vehicles and your residence and report any suspicious activity in your neighborhood via 911," Winter Park police posted on its Facebook page."See something, say something.”
