DELTONA, Fla. (CBS12) —
A woman is accused of ordering a 6-year-old boy to steal a package from a porch in Deltona and it’s all caught on camera.
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office arrested 20-year-old Santana Lindsey on Wednesday.
Monday’s porch crime is caught on camera. Sheriff deputies say video from the homeowner showed a little boy run to the front door of the home, grab a package and run back to a waiting car.
Detectives used the video and license plate data to identify the car and ultimately Lindsey as a suspect. They learned she drove a green Infiniti and routinely cared for a 6-year-old boy. The sheriff’s office said detectives traced the car to her parent’s house in Deltona where they arrested her. Deputies said she confessed to the crime. Authorities returned the stolen package to its owner.
Lindsey faces charges of principal to burglary, child neglect and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She’ll be booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail on $5,500 bond.
