A father and son described as homeless face charges for breaking into cars, according to the Port St. Lucie Police Department.

The burglaries happened Tuesday in the 300 block and 400 block of NW Stratford Lane.

The victims lost E-cigarette retail supplies and a Garmin GPS unit worth more than $1,600 dollars, police said.

An officer remembered seeing two men near a campfire in a wooded area close to the crime scenes on the morning of the burglaries.

He notified fellow officers and one found a pair matching the description in front of a Circle K.

After questioning William Charles Gallway, 51, and his son Anthony William Gallway, 25, police say that they found the GPS in William's belongings and the E-cigarette supplies in a plastic bag hidden near a house on NW Bayshore Boulevard. 

Police arrested the pair and charged them with burglary and grand theft.
