BREVARD COUNTY * MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – A pair of suspects involved in the alleged theft of a landscaping truck that had been reported stolen on Saturday were taken into custody Sunday morning after the owner of the vehicle spotted it in a shopping center parking lot at the intersection of State Road A1A and Eau Gallie Causeway.
According to Sgt. Scott Lindsley with the Melbourne Police Department, the vehicle’s owner was visiting a bagel shop in the shopping center when he saw his stolen truck in the parking lot.
