Florence police believe the vehicle caught on camera is an early 2000 Honda CRV, possibly red.

Once the SUV parks, the male driver pillages through a truck, taking a Yeti cooler from the bed. Not done, the driver then goes through an unlocked car, stealing several Christmas presents.

Florence police would like the public’s help in figuring out who owns the Honda CRV.
