Woman Accused of Burglarizing Car in Gulf Stream FL, Stealing Credits Cards, Checks, and Cash

Gulf Stream Florida Burglary SuspectPalm Beach County Sheriff’s Office detectives located a woman who allegedly broke into a car in Gulf Stream Florida and stole credit cards, checks, IDs, and cash.

According to law enforcement, the 24-year-old suspect burglarized the front passenger window of a locked rental car during the middle of the afternoon on September 17, 2012.

On the same day as the break-in, the suspect allegedly cashed five stolen checks from the victim’s account. The cashed checks totaled more than $4,600 and were allegedly cashed throughout Florida, including Palm Beach County, Broward County, and Miami-Dade County.

Remarkably, the suspect reportedly provided her own personal banking information in order to cash the victim’s checks.

Investigators were able to trace the suspect’s movements through her alleged fraudulent activity.

As a result, the suspect was eventually charged for the car break-in and subsequent fraud.

The suspect, who is from Broward County FL, has been charged with burglary, grand theft, and forgery.

At this time, it is unclear why it took so long for prosecutors to formally charge the suspect. However, police records indicate that the suspect spent at least 8 months in state prison in 2013 and 2014 on unrelated charges.

The suspect is currently back in jail and being held without bond.
