(February 10, 2017) - A burglar working on entering a rear slider door found himself face to face with the armed resident and took flight into the waiting clutches of police.
On February 10th at around 1:30am, Cape Coral police officers responded to a burglary in progress in the 100 block of SW 22nd Court. The resident at the home told police he had scared away a burglar from his rear lanai with a revolver as the burglar attempted to enter the rear slider door. The resident provided a description of the suspect, and a perimeter was quickly established. When an officer on the perimeter investigated a nearby dog barking, he located Jacob Cintra (DOB: 7-13-96). Further investigation revealed Cintra to have been the one attempting to break into the house, and also that he had burglarized the resident's car before trying the house.
Cintra was charged with two counts of burglary, one for the house and one for the car, and he was transported to the Lee County Jail.
ARRESTED: Jacob G. Cintra, W/M, DOB: 7-13-1996, of 2017 SW 2nd Terrace, Cape Coral, FL.
