Winter Haven Police Department
We know that white conversion vans are not necessarily unique, but maybe the circumstances behind this theft will jog someone’s memory.
On January 23, 2022 around 12:45 p.m., the occupant of the van in the video used a stolen credit card at the Loves Truck Stop in Auburndale (1800 Hwy 559).
Earlier, around 11 a.m., our victim was dining at Tom’s Diner (1151 Havendale Blvd., Winter Haven). When the victim left the restaurant, she noticed her purse was not in the vehicle, but thought maybe it was left at home. A short time later, a notification was received that the card was used at the Love’s Truck Stop. The victim then noticed items from the center console missing as well.
Video of the transaction was pulled and the white van is seen at the pump where the card was used.
So, we have a white conversion van that most likely had occupant(s) that dined at Big Tom’s on Sunday morning January 23rd. Maybe someone recognizes the van.
