(April 23, 2018) - A man attempting to burglarize vehicles in downtown Cape Coral was caught by patrol officers and then identified as the perpetrator in previous crimes.
On April 21st, 2018 at approximately 12:45 a.m. a victim caught a man inside his parked truck at the 4800 block of Vincennes Street. The man fled, and the victim discovered $175 in cash and $300 in electronics had been taken. The man could not be located, and a police report was completed.
The following night on April 22nd at approximately 12:20 a.m. the victim saw the same man wearing the same clothing in the Club Square parking lot attempting to gain entry to other vehicles. Cape Coral Police patrol officers responded and found the man, identified as Kendrick Hubbell (DOB: 9-3-96) attempting to conceal himself in the entryway of a closed business. Hubbell could not provide reasonable answers to explain his actions and was placed under arrest for loitering and prowling. With the help of the victim/witness, probable cause was developed to also charge Hubbell with burglary of a conveyance and grand theft. A CCPD detective working the bar district (and hearing Hubbell's arrest via radio) additionally notified officers that Hubbell was the suspect in several other burglaries in his current caseload, and Hubbell was charged with those also. He was then transported to the Lee County Jail.
