Several reports of vehicle breaking and entering were also reported from Sandlewood Apartments, Village Apartments and residents on Florida Street.

Two suspects, Jakob Tanner Smith and Daniel Jacob Findley, both 19 and both from Seminole, have been charged with three counts of burglary; two counts of vehicle theft and four counts of unlawful breaking and entering of a vehicle.

A third suspect, who has been identified as William Young, was pulled over for a traffic violation on Wilters Street near the Baldwin Beach Express.
