BREVARD COUNTY • WEST MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – A West Melbourne store front was damaged Sunday at about 5:45 p.m. after a woman drove a 2007 Mercury Mountaineer SUV through the glass windows of the store, according to police.

According to the West Melbourne Police, the driver pulled into a parking space in front of the Vitamin Shoppe store located at 1653 W. New Haven Avenue, and told police she thought that the vehicle was in “park.”
