Pair of Cape Coral Criminals Sentenced to Prison

(May 14, 2012)- A pair of Cape Coral criminals has been sentenced to state prison. Kurt John Cole has been sentenced to 50 months for 2 counts of grand theft of a firearm, 3 counts of dealing in stolen property and 3 counts of providing false ID to a pawnbroker. Robert Walter Waters has been sentenced to 15 months in state prison for grand theft and criminal mischief.

Cole was arrested by Cape Coral Police Detectives in September of 2011 when he stole firearms among other items from a pastor who let Cole live at his home for a few months while he was down on his luck. Cole stole the items and pawned them at local pawn shops.

Waters was arrested January 3rd of this year by Cape Coral Patrol Officers after he dismantled a residential A/C unit to retrieve the copper coils.

"Our Officers and Detectives work very hard on their investigations. Many people believe that the work is done once the arrest is made. We know that the work is not complete until a strong case is prepared and we partner with the State Attorney's Office to put criminals in prison."-Lieutenant Tony Sizemore.
