NEWS RELEASE 19-006
The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Sarasota couple after they attempted to sell and pawn multiple items stolen during a Siesta Key vehicle burglary.
Detectives were alerted Sunday of a bicycle, laptop, clothing, and several miscellaneous items stolen from an unlocked vehicle in the 1800 block of Stickney Point Road. On Monday, Jonah and Micah Kimbler attempted to both pawn at local pawn shops and sell the stolen items on the “Let Go” website which allows users to buy and sell items secondhand. Jonah brought the stolen bicycle to two pawn shops but was denied before visiting a third, where he was successful. At the same time, Micah attempted to sell jumper cables stolen during the burglary via the Let Go website. Through investigation, undercover detectives began communicating with her online and on Tuesday, agreed to meet with her to purchase the stolen items. When detectives arrived, both Jonah and Micah were taken into custody. Upon their arrest, deputies recovered a needle, prescription pill, and various drug paraphernalia in Jonah’s possession.
