On July 18 the Osceola Sheriff Deputies responded to a distraction burglary on North Narcoossee Road in Saint Cloud. An unknown white or Hispanic male came to the victim’s door claiming he was doing tree work for a neighbor and wanted to see the property line, requesting the homeowner show him.
While the victim was showing the male the property line, a second suspect approached the house and made contact with the wife asking to check their water. The second suspect made his way into the residence and turned on the kitchen faucet. The victim stated during the entirety of the incident the suspect continued talking on a walkie-talkie. When the victim advised he needed to return to the house, the suspect said something on the walkie-talkie and began running away. The suspects in the house fled as well.
At this time, it is not believed anything is missing from the victim’s home. The victim stated he observed an unknown white car, possibly Toyota or Lexus, leaving his driveway, which is believed to be the suspect’s vehicle.
