EDGEWOOD, Fla. — Edgewood police are looking for two men who were caught committing the relatively minor crime of criminal mischief early Tuesday but became wanted as felons for attacking a police officer.

In response to a rash of smash-and-grab burglaries in the small city just south of Orlando, officers were staked out overnight in front of the Edgewood Isles shopping plaza on Hoffner Avenue, police Chief John Tegg said.

The plaza has been hit several times by burglars who steal cars, then crash through store windows to grab safes before fleeing.
