Police identify wrong person as suspect in stolen Disney Magic Band incident

(Winter Park Police)

Police have issued a correction after they initially said a man stole a Disney Magic Band from a home -- then wore it to the parks.

Winter Park Police shared a photo of a man riding Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin at Disney's Magic Kingdom, and said he was wearing a Magic Band that had been stolen from a home.

Investigators posted the photo to Facebook, asking for the public's help to identify him.

But several hours later, police issued a correction on social media, saying the photo they had posted was incorrect.

"It has come to light that the person(s) shown in our prior post are NOT associated with the burglary in WP," the agency wrote on Twitter. "The information initially provided to us regarding the photo was deemed to be inaccurate. We apologize to the persons pictured and to anyone who was adversely affected."
