Tractor trailer thefts are on the rise, according to Florida law enforcement agencies.
Law enforcement has worked thefts in Dundee, Bartow, Haines City, and Lake Wales. Most are happening when the trucks are parked overnight.
And authorities say thieves are also cashing in on the holidays, stealing presents, purses, and personal items from cars. Deputies say it only takes seconds for someone to smash a car window and get away with the goods. It happens most often at doctor's offices, daycares, the gym, and at the dog groomer.
