Burglars foiled by hurricane glass

Media Relations Officer Kevin Kelshaw reported to Historic City News that two men are being sought in connection with criminal mischief and an attempted break-in to a Ponte Vedra bank earlier this week.

The suspects, captured on surveillance tape, attempted to gain entry into the Seaside Bank, located at 820 A1A North between Sunday night and early Monday morning.

The suspects went to the rear of the bank and threw bricks at the glass doors and windows.

They were not successful in gaining entry because the bank is protected by hurricane glass.

Anyone with any information concerning the identity of these two individuals is asked to contact Detective David Garns at the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office at (904) 209-3982.

You can also remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a cash reward by calling CrimeStoppers of N.E. Florida at 1-(888) 277-TIPS (8477).
