The Polk County Sheriff's Office is investigating car burglaries which occurred in the WildWood neighborhood (off of West Pipkin Road) in the southwest area of Lakeland.

The burglaries happened in the evening hours of October 26th.

Security video obtained from the neighborhood has not been very helpful in identifying the suspects, but a witness described the suspects as three black males. Some of the clothing she described matched some of the suspects in a nearby report of five black males who were seen throwing rocks at passing vehicles on Pipkin Road near Dossey Road. 

If you have any information that could help with either of these investigations, please contact Detective Marcoux at (863)577-1600.
