Deputies are seeking the public’s help identifying three suspects involved in a car theft that occurred last week at the RaceTrac on Sandhill Boulevard.

A 2015 Jeep Wrangler four-door vehicle was reported stolen on June 5 at the gas station in Port Charlotte at 2:22 p.m.

According to the police report, the jeep was last seen driving into Deep Creek.

Deputies later found out the three suspects were dropped off at the RaceTrac by a Florida Highway Patrol trooper who saw them walking on the interstate. The suspects gave the trooper false names, the report said.

According to the report, the jeep was seen at 2:36 p.m. the same day, approaching the RaceTrac where the vehicle was stolen. As the Traffic Unit attempted to stop the Jeep, the vehicle drove over the median, running the red light and fleeing the scene. The vehicle crashed into a silver car and continued onto I-75 northbound.

Authorities Tuesday released a photo of a third suspect.

The Traffic Unit followed the jeep northbound on I-75, until bad weather and increased speed made conditions unsafe. The jeep was later found abandoned in Bradenton.

The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office also released additional pictures of the suspects involved in Monday’s robbery at a Pilot Gas Station in Punta Gorda.

According to a police report, one of the unknown male suspects appears to shows symptoms of Vitiligo, based on a noticeable discoloration of skin pigmentation.

Deputies are asking if anyone has information on the identities of the suspects in either case, to contact CCSO at 941-639-0013, or call Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
