Four Broward County residents arrested by St. Lucie County Sheriff's investigators for three car burglaries at St. Lucie beach parking lots, with additional charges possible, according to Sheriff Mascara
Four Broward County residents are being held at the St. Lucie County jail, charged with three burglaries to cars parked at St. Lucie County beach access points, according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.

"We have charged all four with three burglaries so far, and we are continuing to investigate, and we believe the that these four suspects may have committed similar car burglaries in Palm Beach, Indian River and Martin counties," Sheriff Mascara said. "We will contact investigators in those counties with details of evidence we seized after serving a search warrant Monday night at a hotel in St. Lucie County where the four were staying."

The four, all confined at the St. Lucie County jail, are: Marsha Chelsie Jean-Joseph, 20 ($35,750 bond); Victoria Yvonne Williams, 19 ($35,750 bond); Myron Stanley, 24 ($35,750 bond); and Siegel Uno Farrell ($37,750 bond.)

One of their victims was Jessica Hernandez, 26, of Port St. Lucie, whose pocketbook was stolen by thieves who smashed the passenger side front window of her 2004 Nissan at Pepper Park, North A1A, Saturday and stole her purse. That same day, thieves committed a similar burglary to a Ford Explorer belonging to her sister, Mary Hernandez Chang, parked in the same parking lot.

Monday, Hernandez received a call from county resident Cheri Reid, who found some of the items stolen from the Hernandez car. When Hernandez met with Reid Monday in the Pepper Park parking lot, she saw the same Silver BMW she had seen Saturday when her car was burlgarized. The people in the BMW were driving around the parking lot looking into the windows of other parked cars. Hernandez called 9-1-1.

Deputies took the four people in the BMW (Jean-Joseph, Williams, Stanley and Farrell) into custody, then took them to St. Lucie County Sheriff's detective offices for interviews.

Farrell at first told detectives his name was James Stewart and insisted that was his name until detectives told him he would be fingerprinted at the jail. Farrell then admitted he had given a false name.
