A man suspected of unlawfully entering vehicles in Deltona has been apprehended by Volusia County deputies.
Over the weekend, two individuals, both wearing gloves and concealing their faces, were caught on surveillance cameras as they broke into cars in Deltona.
One of the culprits has been identified as 23-year-old Nicholas Coffey from Palm Coast. Surveillance footage indicated that Coffey visited a Deltona gas station around 4:30 a.m. on Saturday.
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office revealed that Coffey was associated with a stolen Mercedes Benz, which had been reported missing in Ormond Beach.
Further inquiry unveiled that the Mercedes had been in Deltona during the time when the car break-ins occurred.
In addition to his involvement in these incidents, Coffey had an existing arrest warrant for a separate case. On Sunday, he was located in Daytona Beach at around 5 a.m.
Coffey was subsequently arrested on charges that include conspiracy to commit burglary, conspiracy to commit attempted burglary of a conveyance, fraudulent use of a credit card, and violation of probation.
Deputies are currently in the process of identifying a second suspect linked to the vehicle break-ins.
