Polk County Sheriff's detectives in Winter Haven AND Lakeland are attempting to identify the suspects seen here, who burglarized cars in Winter Haven, but then used the stolen credit cards in Lakeland.

Between 3:30 and 7:45 a.m. on Saturday, January 21, 2023, three unknown black male juvenile suspects walked around the Oak Preserve neighborhood in Winter Haven flipping car door handles - opening the unlocked cars and stealing from within. 

They then drove over to Lakeland and used stolen credit cards at the Exxon gas station located at 1315 US Hwy 98 in Lakeland. These images are from the video camera at that gas station.  The suspects are believed to live in the Crystal Lake area.

If you have any information about these crimes, please call Detective Jones at 863-297-1100.
