(March 24, 2016)- Two women, using a cleaning service as a cover to commit burglary, are behind bars thanks to an observant victim and quick action by Officers.
Yesterday, Cape Coral Police responded to a burglary in progress in the 900 block of SE 43 Terrace.
The victim reported that a 9 mm pistol, an iPad, and laptop stolen from his home. The victim was able to provide a suspect vehicle description, reporting he saw the vehicle speed off as he pulled into his driveway. The victim recognized the car as one belonging to a cleaning service he had out to his home earlier for an estimate.
One of the officers who responded was familiar with the suspects and located the suspect car and suspects, who were found still in their uniforms, at 4117 SE 19th Ave. The investigation revealed that Vasques and Condon threw a stolen iPad, iPod, and a cell phone into the pool at this location attempting to conceal them from investigating Officers. The stolen 9mm pistol was recovered from the suspect's vehicle. The victim identified all of the stolen property as his.
Investigative Services Bureau Property Crimes Detectives were notified and a ledger of clients has been seized for follow-up to determine if there are additional victims.
Both were transported to Lee County Jail.
"This was a great job by the victim who maintained his cool and gave us great information, and a fantastic response by Officers within our Patrol Bureau. The quick identification and location of the suspects is a testament to good old fashioned police work and sound community policing principles- partnering with your citizens and knowing who's who in the area." - Det. Sergeant Dana Coston, Cape Coral Police Department Public Affairs Officer.
