Our officers located five burglarized vehicles last night (Tuesday), pursuant to a suspicious persons call in the area of Holy Cross Church. All of the vehicles were located on Riomar Drive and appeared to have been rummaged through. Nothing was missing from four of the vehicles, and a key fob was stolen from one of the cars. Our officers were able to get a description for the suspicious persons and their vehicle, and Indian River County Sheriff’s Office was able to make contact with that vehicle and made two arrests. We will update you as IRCSO releases more information.
In the meantime, please check your vehicles and make sure nothing is missing or has been tampered with. As always, please lock your vehicles and do not leave anything inside. Please stay safe and vigilant, and we will keep you updated.
Officer Anna Carden, 395, Vero Beach Police Department
When the Vero city council begins work on the next city budget, let’s hope downsizing the police dept is not considered.
