DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.- A man was caught on a cellphone video coming out of an RV at the Daytona International Speedway and then wiping the handle on the door. A few hours later he was in police custody. Steven Sanders is accused of stealing credit cards, watches, and wallets from speedways all over the country. One of thousands of victims include actor Patrick Dempsey who races in the Rolex 24 at Daytona. His racing ID was found in Sanders possession.
