Released By Osceola County Sheriff’s Office
On April 29, 2019, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office posted a request for the community’s assistance on social media in reference to identifying a suspect who had committed several package thefts in the Remington Subdivision. The thefts were captured on a Ring doorbell. On Saturday, May 4, 2019, a tip came in to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office concerning a possible sighting of the pictured suspect to include a vehicle description and license plate number. That information became instrumental, as it assisted in locating the suspect. Members of the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office East Property Crimes Unit immediately acted on the tip and within hours, Eduardo Flores DOB 9/27/99, was arrested and charged with two counts of Burglary and two counts of Petit Theft. The stolen property was also located and given back to its rightful owners. A big kudos to the Remington Subdivision for coming together and helping to keep their community safe.
