The DeLand Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying these two men:

Shortly before 1 p.m. Monday two men came into City Hall, 120 South Florida Avenue, were taking photographs and appeared to be scoping out the building's security cameras. When approached by one staff member they identified themselves as "independent" and later said they were "independent journalists." 

They visited all three floors of City Hall in a matter of minutes and then left the building.

Prior to coming to City Hall, the men also went into the Police Department's front lobby and seemed to be inspecting the security cameras there as well. 

After leaving City Hall the men headed in the direction of the historic Volusia County Courthouse. The Supervisor of Elections Office confirmed this morning the men were inside their building too and had similar interactions with staff. 

Out of an abundance of caution, the police department would like to identify these individuals and talk to them.

We would also like to use this opportunity to remind residents if you see something, say something. Do not be afraid to call 9-1-1 if you believe the situation could be a potential emergency. 

If anyone has information on these two men, please contact the DeLand Police Department at 386-626-7400 or people may leave an anonymous tip on our website:
