Man Brought A 4-Year-Old Along To Burglarize Home. BRINGING A 4-YEAR-OLD ALONG, REALLY? A burglary suspect caught inside an Edgewater home is in custody today on a variety of charges including child neglect, after Volusia County sheriff’s deputies found he brought a 4-year-old girl along with him.
Deputies responded to the 100 block of Charles Street around 8 a.m. Thursday after a witness reported a suspicious person carrying around large bags on a neighbor’s property along the river. The owner discovered someone had been on his boat, and some electrical wires had been tampered with in an apparent attempt to start it. The witness also reported the suspect was walking with a little girl, and the girl was also carrying a bag.
Just before noon, another report came in about a man and a little girl walking through back yards on the 100 block of Coleman Street (near the initial incident), and looking into utility sheds. While a deputy was speaking to a woman standing on the second-story deck of her home in the area, he heard a male voice coming from downstairs. The woman said no one else should be in her house. That’s when deputies discovered 35-year-old James Giambra
