Over the weekend, the Bay County Sheriff's Office responded to numerous vehicle burglaries where a window was broken to make entry into the vehicle. The suspect or suspects appeared to be targeting vehicles with purses or other valuables left in plain sight, in parking lots or gatherings where the vehicles would be parked for a short period of time.
The burglaries began on the West end of Panama City Beach, and moved through the county into Panama City, Bayou George, and Youngstown.
Should anyone have information on the identity of the suspect in this case, please contact the Bay County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division or Crime Stoppers at 785-TIPS.
Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford would like to remind the public to remove all valuables from their vehicles when not occupying the vehicle and do not assume those belongings to be safe just because the vehicle is locked.
