(January 23, 2017) - An observant citizen, a tenacious neighbor, and members of the Cape Coral Police Department Patrol and Investigative Services Bureaus teamed up to apprehend a pair of car burglars in southeast Cape Coral.

Early Friday morning, a car alarm went off at around 5:25 AM in the 4200 block of SE 3rd Avenue.  The victim called the Cape Coral Police Department, letting Dispatch know that their vehicle had been opened. A neighbor followed the suspects through the neighborhood. The suspects took flight and were later located by officers from Platoon 3. Platoon 2 officers and detectives from the Investigative Services Bureau assisted in the investigation. Detective Niland and Officer Alamprese charged the suspects as listed below.

"The Cape Coral Police Department would like to reiterate the importance of 'Lock It Or Lose It'. When burglars have to break windows or set off car alarms instead of stealthily entering unlocked vehicles, our helpful and cooperative citizens alert us and the burglars pay the consequences."
~Corporal Phil Mullen, Cape Coral Police Department Public Affairs Officer
