Hillsborough County deputies are searching for a South Florida man who is accused of walking into the Lazy Days RV store in Seffner, writing a worthless check for $246,445, then driving away in his newly purchased 2014 Winnebago motor home.

After Lazy Days tried and failed to cash the worthless check, which was written June 26, deputies say they are searching for 59-year-old Robert Schneider.

Deputies say they have searched area campgrounds but have found no traces of Schneider — whose last address was in Lauderhill — or the multi-color motor home since discovering his check was worthless.

Schneider and the motor home were last spotted in Hollywood, deputies said.

Schneider faces a charge of first-degree theft. The Sheriff’s Office asks that anyone who locates the motor home or Schneider should call 813-247-8200.
