Two suspects are facing burglary, grand theft and other charges after a victim reported their vehicle was burglarized at Fleischmann Park.

The victim reported their purse, which had credit cards, was stolen from their car. The victim also discovered fraudulent charges to one of her credit cards shortly after the alleged burglary.

Whitehead and Ayton were going back home to Broward County.

Whitehead and Ayton face the following charges:

  • Burglary/Conveyance Not Occupied
  • Grand Theft- $750 to less than $5,000
