Electronics stolen from Boys & Girls Club in Daytona Beach

Possible suspect caught on video

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Multiple gaming systems and other electronics were stolen during a burglary at a Boys & Girls Club on Wednesday, according to the Daytona Beach Police Department.

Police said an employee at the John H. Dickerson Club on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard arrived to work Wednesday and noticed that a PlayStation 4, an Xbox One and a Wii were missing. A further search determined that three PlayStation controllers, three Wii controllers, two PlayStation charging stations, one Xbox charging station and two Wii charging stations were also missing, records show.

Daytona Beach Police Chief Craig Capri said the center helps to keep children of the street and for many of them, the gaming systems are a big draw.

“We need to get it back so, the bad guy out there: We know you took the stuff. Just bring it back no questions asked and drop it off, please,” Capri said.

Surveillance video showed a man wearing a hoodie and pants approaching the building then walking away 10 minutes later. Officials said they couldn’t tell what the man was doing during that time but they assumed he was attempting to pry open the door.

The man returned to the door then 15 minutes later, he’s seen leaving with two blue bags in his hand, according to the report.

No arrests have been made.
