WINTER HAVEN, Fla. — Winter Haven police are searching for two suspects caught on video breaking into several vehicles outside of an apartment complex early Monday morning.

According to police, the two people arrived at the Lake Buckeye Apartments at 4:15 a.m. in a white newer model Ford Expedition or Explorer with chrome wheels. Video shows them get out of the vehicle and walk through the area looking for open vehicles.

Police said the suspects broke the back door window in one truck to steal items inside.

Police said the suspects even hid when a vehicle drove through the parking lot before they continued their "dastardly deeds."
