ALERT: Vehicle Burglaries Occurring Now Throughout Spring Hill
SPRING HILL – Sheriff’s Deputies are scrambling to catch up with a vehicle burglar who is targeting parking lots throughout Spring Hill right now.
Officials have confirmed that several vehicle burglaries are being investigated in the Spring Hill area at this time.
RNRF has learned through sources that at least four locations throughout Spring Hill have been hit within the last two hours. Several victims have reported thefts at Anderson Snow Park on Anderson Snow Road, Veterans Park on Spring Hill Drive, the YMCA on Mariner Blvd, and the Rotary Centennial Dog Park, on Sandlor Street. And just minutes ago, another vehicle burglary was reported at All Pediatric Care, located at 221 Mariner Blvd.
Stacy Prisco says she was exercising at Veterans Memorial Park when she noticed a window busted out of her pickup truck. Emotional and in tears, Prisco said “He took all my credit cards, my check, $11,000 in business checks and most importantly, he has my social security number.” Prisco says the suspect may be driving a grey or black Dodge Caravan and the suspect could be a black male, wearing a dark colored ball cap. Prisco saw the man standing next to a vehicle that was later reported to have been broken into. An official description of the suspect has not been released by the Sheriff’s Office.
Susan Noble, another victim at Veterans Memorial Park says “I usually walk the park for an hour, four or five times a week, and I park right here next to the trail so that I can keep an eye on my vehicle.” Noble says after making several loops on the walking trail she noticed the back window down on her vehicle. That’s when she discovered the broken window and that her purse was missing from the vehicle. “I’m just glad I wasn’t there so that nobody got hurt, so I guess that’s a plus.”
We spoke to Carla Lapinski at All Pediatrics on Mariner Blvd who says the suspect entered her vehicle through an unlocked door and stole her purse. Lapinski could see someone by her vehicle through a window inside the doctor’s office but by the time she came outside the suspect was gone. Deputies checked the area but they have not located a suspect at this time.
RNRF has not received the total number of vehicle burglaries at this time as the investigation is still fluid.
We will bring more on this story as it develops.
