“Campus security videos show a black male suspect driving a white mid-sized SUV, possibly a Dodge Journey,” said Martinez.

“The suspect did not open the victim’s vehicle door, instead, he forced entry by breaking the window.”

Further investigation revealed the suspect used several of the victim’s checks and credit cards at local area stores.

Surveillance images from the stores captured the same suspect seen in the campus security video making the fraudulent purchases.

Anyone with information that can help identify the suspect seen in the surveillance images is asked to contact the Central Florida CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477).
