ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – Deputies are searching for a man who stole from the St. Johns County Flea Market in February, according to the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.

It happened Feb. 17 at the St. Johns County Flea Market at 2495 S.R. 207 in St. Augustine.

Investigators said the man was seen on video taking multiple items from the victim's flea market booth and placing them in his vehicle.

The same man returned the following weekend and on two separate occasions attempted to steal multiple items from the same victim once again, deputies said.

 

The Sheriff's Office said man was seen leaving in an early 2000s maroon GMC Sierra pickup truck with a Florida tag that was heavily damaged. Deputies said the truck appeared to have a built-in steel rack attached to the bed and chrome rail caps.

Anyone with information about the man or truck is asked to email Deputy Livingston at clivingston@sjso.org.
