Thieves steal student science project from driveway to San Carlos Park

SAN CARLOS PARK, Fla. – A thief was caught on camera stealing a 4th grader’s science project in his parents’ driveway.

Melissa Tharp’s family lives in San Carlos Park. Her 4th grade son, Gabriel, is the defending school science fair champion.

Tharps said Gabriel got creative this year, hoping to repeat his science fair title by turning a globe into a solar oven and trying to bake cupcakes in the sun. .

“It was a lot of effort. We have been working continuously for several weeks now,” Tharp said. “There’s a lot of material involved to put it together.”

On Sunday, Tharps is testing out their latest creation ahead of Tuesday’s science fair. They put the oven and cupcakes at the end of the driveway around 1:20 p.m. Melissa said she went inside to get her phone and when she came back she said the oven and pastry were gone.

“I was a bit surprised. I don’t think it looked like something worth picking up,” Tharp said.

She checked her home’s security camera, which showed a woman getting out of her car and running to the driveway, grabbing the solar oven and its contents before taking off.

“I hope it was just an accident and they’ll see this as my son’s science fair project and give it back,” Tharp said.

Melissa and her children drove around San Carlos Park looking for the thief but did not find the vehicle in question. They have replaced supplies and are trying to rebuild the solar furnace in time for Tuesday’s science fair.

Melissa said if the science fair project is to return, there may be a sweet gift waiting for the woman on screen.

Tharp said: “Give it back and join us for the cupcake party.
