The rash of vehicle burglaries on Siesta Key continued Aug. 27, when at least four residents reported items missing from their cars. All of the vehicles were unlocked, according to incident reports from the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office.

A Gameboy, a diaper bag, a pack of cigarettes, and more than $10 in loose change were reported missing by residents living on Commonwealth Drive and a tourist staying on Siesta Woods Drive, who said his 6-year-old daughter heard suspicious noises at 3:30 a.m.

Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Scott Osborne said during a Siesta Key Association meeting earlier this month said it was possible that a band of thieves were coordinating burglaries at beach accesses. Deputies conducted an undercover sting aimed at catching the culprits, but were unsuccessful, he said during a Siesta Key Village Association meeting.
