The thefts occurred in the Lakeshore Drive and Van Buren Street and Lakeshore Drive and Stanton Street areas.
Deputies were tipped off when a man woke up to his dogs barking at about 5 a.m. Monday in the 5200 Block of Dune Drift Drive. He noticed several items missing from his vehicle and a black Ford Focus driving away from his home, the sheriff's office said.
Deputies were able to find the car not far from the home shortly after the theft. They stopped the car and discovered the stolen items inside.
