POLK COUNTY SHERIFF’s OFFICE
LAKELAND, FL. – On September 19th, an RV was stolen from a Circle K parking lot near Lake Wales. Security video showed a blue Ford Edge pull into the parking lot. A male passenger got out, got into the RV, and drove it away.
The RV was recovered two days later in Homeland. Inside the RV, deputies also recovered documents and ID cards for several people, among them were Brandon Spangler and his girlfriend Tiffany Tanner-Silva.
A detective spoke with several people who said that Brandon and his girlfriend Tanner-Silva had taken the RV and were trying to sell it. On October 12th, a deputy saw Spangler getting out of a white Ford Ranger on Arizona Avenue in Lakeland. The deputy told Spangler to stop. Brandon did not stop, other deputies arrived and eventually found Spangler in a dumpster.
Spangler was arrested, and the Ford truck was determined to be stolen. Additionally, that same Ford truck was recorded by security cameras on October 6th in the Banana Lake Road/Clubhouse Road area of Lakeland during the attempted theft of a Chevy Truck.
A suspect on the video has yet to be identified. Spangler denied being involved in the theft of the RV or the attempted theft of the Chevy Truck. He did acknowledge he was in the stolen Ford Truck though.
If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of Tiffany Tanner-Silva, please contact Deputy Gaiser at (863)678-4115.
