(September 25, 2015)-  Last night, around 11:40 PM, Cape Coral Police responded to a burglary in progress in the 3300 block of SE 19 Avenue.

When Officers arrived, they learned that the victim's husband chased the burglars down the street on foot and was now pursuing the suspects in a car near Del Prado Blvd. and Viscaya Pkwy.  Additional units responded to locate the suspect vehicle.

Realizing that they were being followed, the suspects began throwing items that they had stolen from the car.  Officer Ross located the suspect vehicle and conducted a high-risk car stop with K9 Officer McCreary and Trainee Mitchell.  Willoughby, Yepez, and a third subject were detained.  Officers were able to retrace the vehicle's path and recover items that were confirmed to belong to the victim.

Evidence was gathered and statements were obtained from witnesses.  Willoughby and Yepez were charged with the car burglary and violating their probation.  Cape Coral Police Property Detectives were notified.  Yepez and Willoughby are believed to be responsible for a rash of car burglaries and stolen cars that occurred overnight on September 23rd into September 24th.  Additional charges are pending per Detective Munoz-Hoys.
