Stolen Winnebago located in Broward County
An alert has been canceled for a Winnebago stolen out of Seffner. The motor home was located late Friday night, September 14, after detectives received a tip from the public, thanks to images of the Winnebago and the suspect who stole it, Robert Schneider, being broadcast on television.
Schneider, 59, wrote a worthless check for $246,445.51 to Lazy Days, 6130 Lazy Days Blvd, in Seffner to buy a 2014 Winnebago on June 26, 2018. On Friday night, the vehicle was located in an RV park in the city of Oakland Park, Florida. Schneider was found at a location, also in Broward County, not far from the RV park. He was arrested without incident.
The Winnebago will be picked up by managers of Lazy Days from an impound lot in Broward County. Schneider is awaiting extradition from Broward back to Hillsborough County, where he will be held on a $150,000 bond for First Degree Grand Theft.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office would like to thank the media for helping to spread the word, leading to Schneider's arrest and the Winnebago being located.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man who wrote a worthless check in order to buy a Winnebago motor home.
On June 26, 2018, Robert Schneider, 59, wrote a check to Lazy Days, a business located at 6130 Lazy Days Blvd in Seffner, in the amount of $246,445.51 for a 2014 Winnebago Motor Home. Schneider left the lot with the motor home, but once the business tried to process the check, it was returned to them.
On Thursday, September 13, a warrant was issued for Schneider's arrest for First Degree Grand Theft.
