DAYTONA BEACH, FL – A 37-year-old man forced his way into the home of a Holly Hill woman Thursday, demanded her car keys and fled in her 2021 Cadillac, along with stealing her phones so she couldn’t call for help. The suspect, later identified as Kyle McCormick, 37 of Daytona Beach, was eventually arrested at a Sunoco gas station in Ormond Beach and transported to the Volusia County Branch Jail without incident.
According to authorities, just before 10 a.m., the victim, 68, managed to call law enforcement to report the home invasion robbery, which occurred in the 1200 block of 15th Street. The woman, who was not injured, told deputies she was terrified after the suspect knocked on her front door and pushed his way into her home when she opened the door. McCormick repeatedly demanded her car and followed her around her home as she searched for her vehicle’s key fob and complied.
Once he had the keys, the suspect took the vehicle and her cell and house phones. A Be on the Lookout (BOLO) alert was issued for the male and the stolen vehicle. With the assistance of Holly Hill police, Volusia Sheriff’s Office (VSO) detectives created a photographic lineup in which the robbery victim positively identified McCormick as the man who stole her vehicle.
Detectives used the vehicle’s OnStar in-vehicle security system, which disabled the stolen Cadillac and provided its location. Detectives found the vehicle unoccupied on Raleigh Avenue in Daytona Beach. McCormick was eventually located at the Sunoco gas station on 1546 W. Granada Blvd in Ormond Beach, and taken into custody.
