Apopka residents say serial porch pirate on the prowl

Demetra Williams smiled when she got the notification a package had been delivered to her house in Apopka’s sprawling Pines of Wekiva subdivision.

It was a Christmas present for her son. But when she got home later that day, the smile vanished quickly. The package was gone.

Williams says, “We started checking our surveillance cameras and we realized somebody took our package.”

Williams and husband Jeff’s anger turned to hope once she posted the video to an Apopka community Facebook page. Very quickly, people in the group responded that they had seen the same man and same vehicle on their streets. One woman even caught video of what appears to be the same man approaching a package at her front door.

“We caught the guy on video and we couldn’t believe it that he was trying to take the package” says Simone Serwe.

That’s when other neighbors chimed in as did Apopka police.
