Winter Park police apologize for accusing wrong man in stolen MagicBand case

in Disney News & Events


WINTER PARK, Fla. – Winter Park police are apologizing after tweeting a video that showed a man wearing a Disney MagicBand they wrongly said he had stolen during a burglary.

The original tweet, which has since been deleted, asked people to identify the man shown firing a toy gun while wearing the yellow MagicBand on what appeared to be the Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin ride at Magic Kingdom.

Hours after the tweet was posted Thursday, police posted on Twitter again to cancel the be-on-the-lookout request and apologized to the Disney guests shown in the video.
