WFTV Uncovers Incident Report About Break-In At Anthony's House

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- Right around the time Caylee Anthony disappeared, her grandparents reported someone had stolen two cans of gas from their shed and mother Casey Anthony had been known to steal gas before.

Investigators don't believe there's a direct connection to the girl's disappearance, but one admitted to Eyewitness News the timing of the break-in and what was taken from the family's property raised a lot of eyebrows.

Caylee Anthony may have already been missing when deputies were called out to the Anthony family's home in late June, but at that time the focus was a burglary to a storage shed in the backyard.

According to a June 24 incident report from the Orange County Sheriff's Office, George Anthony said someone stole two gas cans and broke the lock to his storage shed to get them.

The family avoided the topic after court Tuesday. Investigators said Casey Anthony has stolen gas from her family before, but they don't think the burglary has a connection to Caylee's disappearance and don't believe it was used to destroy evidence in the case.

The break in happened in the middle of what's now an even more mysterious timeline. The family says Caylee was last seen June 15. The burglary to the storage shed happened between June 22 and June 24, the same day Casey Anthony's ex-fiancé said he heard little Caylee in the background of a phone conversation with Casey.

Casey wasn't arrested until July 16 and the investigation led detectives to the same backyard where deputies had been just a few weeks earlier. The sheriff's report says a deputy dusted for prints on the storage shed and didn't any.
