The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has arrested David Lewis, 26, of Sarasota, for a string of crimes from December 23rd to January 7th.
Deputies investigating nine vehicle burglaries, primarily west of I-75 in an area bordered by Sawyer, Bee Ridge and Proctor roads, identified Lewis as the suspect from a WalMart surveillance photo showing him use credit cards stolen in one of the crimes, according to a press release from the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office.
While searching for Lewis, his father showed deputies items that Lewis had brought into the home including two GPS units, a laptop computer, camera, cell phone, iPod and prepaid credit card – all identified as property stolen in the recent burglaries.
Lewis is charged with one count of Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card, one count of Larceny and nine counts of Burglary. He is currently being held on $46,120 bond. He has previously been arrested for burglary, drug possession and check fraud.
All nine of the vehicles that he burglarized were unlocked. This is a crime of opportunity so citizens should take the extra step to protect themselves and lock their vehicles at all times.
