EDGEWATER, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - A handful of cars and a home were broken into on Kumquat Road in Edgewater Monday night, but one family says these thieves took it a step further and broke into their home while they slept, even taking their child's piggy bank.
The intruders broke into the home through a front window and took his prized possession, four-year-old Jacob Keller's piggy bank.
"That was rude!" he said.
His mom Beth has even bigger problems -- her purse, keys and car are gone.
"It's crazy that someone would be gutsy enough to break into your house while you're sleeping in the next room. I work so hard for everything I get you know. For someone to do this it's unreal!"
She's a nurse and now has to borrow a car to get to work. Her missing car is a 2016 Jeep Compass, dark-blue, almost black, with a car seat in the back. Around the license plate are the words, "Nurses Give Intensive Care."
Overnight, police said criminals broke into several cars on the same street, taking money, a GPS system and other small items. They have increased patrols and are asking anyone who may have information about the burglaries to call at 386-424-2400.
