SARASOTA, Fla.- The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office has arrested David Skolnick, 29, of 1615 Stickney Point Road in Sarasota, for several burglaries early Thursday morning.
A deputy stopped Skolnick at around 3:00 a.m., for riding his bicycle without a light. When asked for identification, Skolnick opened his wallet which revealed someone else’s driver’s license. Skolnick had another ID and credit cards that did not belong to him and items in his backpack that were not his. Deputies drove to Donnington Court where the victims lived and discovered three vehicle burglaries had occurred.
Skolnick, who has 26 prior arrests in Sarasota County, is charged with four counts of Burglary, two counts of Grand Theft, two counts of Petit Theft and one count of Possession of Burglary Tools. He is also charged with Violation of Probation for prior weapons charges.
Each of the burglarized vehicles was unlocked, so the Sheriff’s Office reminds residents to remove valuables from their vehicles and always lock the doors.
