Man Arrested for Grand Theft Auto in Sorrento Springs

Cory Close

On Halloween a resident of the Sorrento Springs subdivision woke up to his 2003 Ford F-250 missing from his driveway. Deputies responded and took the report to begin the investigation.


After reviewing the video footage from the guard shack, deputy Edmonson and the security guard saw the victim’s truck leave one of the gates in the middle of the night. Deputy Edmonson began looking all over the Sorrento area for the truck locating it at a residence on Tollgate Trail and two males working on it.

After an investigation, Miranda warning, and area search, deputy Edmonson obtained probable cause to arrest Cory Lee Close (35) of Sorrento for grand theft auto. Mr. Close is currently released on a $5,000 bond.
