SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. – A man and woman are accused of burglarizing five vehicles in unincorporated Winter Park early Monday morning, according to the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.

A witness called 911 around 4:15 a.m. to report two people pulling on vehicle door handles on Sun Valley Circle. The man said the two people fled in a gray Jeep Cherokee when he tried to confront them.

Deputies said they pulled over Desire Negron, 20, and James Kirk, 19, on Howell Branch Road after the deputy realized that the driver and passenger matched the description provided by the witness.

Negron and Kirk were both visibly shaking, stuttering and sweating, according to the affidavit. They were arrested after the witness was brought to the scene and confirmed that Negron and Kirk were the people he confronted, deputies said.

More than $1,500 worth of items that had been stolen from five vehicles were found in the Jeep Cherokee Negron was driving, according to the affidavit.

Those items included a Macy's credit card, Dewalt tools, a handicap placard, a Garmin GPS, a JL Audio subwoofer, a folding chair and electrical equipment.

Deputies said other vehicles were also broken into, but those victims were unwilling to prosecute. 

Kirk and Negron were charged with burglary, grand theft, possession of personal ID of others, larceny of a credit card and criminal mischief.
