Eagle-Eyed Neighbors Stop Burglar
(April 21, 2014)- On Saturday, Cape Coral Police Officers responded to a burglary in progress call at 1203 NE 3rd Terrace. Neighbors reported a suspicious male prowling around the rear of a vacant home that is currently up for rent in the neighborhood.
When officers arrived they quickly located Jean, who post-Miranda, admitted to having entered the rear lanai, and attempted entry to the house by prying the door (causing damage). Jean had a black backpack with him that he advised was for collecting spoils and carrying his entry tools.
