ROYAL PALM BEACH, Fla. - Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office detectives are asking the public to help identify a suspect thought to be connected to 12 vehicles that were vandalized in the Greenway Village Community.

“There was glass all over here," said Susan Bertoncini, whose car window was smashed, but only a dollar bill and some change were stolen from her car.

PBSO provided surveillance photos of the person who they think could be responsible for the burglaries that happened sometime overnight from Tuesday into Wednesday.

Out of the burglaries; four vehicles were unlocked and eight vehicle windows were broken.

“I have a 500 deductible on my insurance, so I’ll probably have to pay the whole thing," Bertoncini said.

“Right next to my car, both of the cars on both sides of me had been broken into the driver’s side window was smashed," said Alexander Nebb, whose car was not broken into.

One car owner was having his window repaired in the parking lot at Greenway Village late Wednesday morning. He said only a car charger was stolen from his car.

Statement from PBSO
Several vehicle burglaries have been occurring in our county.  PLEASE remove all valuables as many of the recent cases have involved smashed in windows.  PLEASE lock your vehicles.
If you have extra key fobs or an extra set of keys – PLEASE do not leave them in your vehicle.  Recent Vehicle Theft cases have involved keys being left inside the vehicles being burglarized.  Once the extra keys are found by the suspects, the vehicles are being stolen.
If you see someone who does not belong in your neighborhood – call 688-3400 immediately or 911 if you see crimes being committed.
