North Port community efforts leads the arrest of some car burglars
Thanks to a community effort, the North Port Police Department was able to catch up with some car burglars early Friday morning. A neighbor first called us, then a paper carrier with the North Port Sun saw them. Quick action from our patrol units along with help from Sarasota County (FL) Sheriff’s Office Air 2 and our K9 Unit were able to apprehend three individuals from Cape Coral. Two in their early 20’s and one juvenile. So far we have been able to trace them back to roughly a dozen of the recent vehicle burglaries we have been experiencing lately. More charges could be coming. This is another reminder to please lock your vehicles. You never know who might decide to come pay us a visit.
Hey Frankie. Anonymous this time please.
My family was one of the ones with a car burglarized in North Port this morning. As bad as this has been, it also has helped us see some real good in folks. Thank you Venice Elementary for providing my 1st grader, whose backpack was stolen, with a brand new backpack and some supplies. Thank you North Port PD and Officer Ja’mal Felicien for being so fast in getting to our home, catching the offenders, and just generally being sweet and helpful. We appreciate all the kindness!
