BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Our law enforcement partners have informed us that a group of men from south Florida may be coming up to the Central Florida area looking to commit distraction type thefts.

In these cases, the thieves look for unlocked doors at gas stations and try to steal purses while the driver is distracted with the pumping of gas or in some cases while running into the store.

Please be aware and keep your car locked or keep an eye on the vehicle while you pump the gas.

As always, if you see something suspicious please call the police to investigate.
