PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's detectives arrested a Port Charlotte man after he entered a home Sunday then arrested later for stealing a $2,000 lap top from another home. Adam Michael Demers, 22, of 4324 Conway Boulevard was arrested for the crimes.
Two women reported at 3 p.m. that a man entered their front lanai door in the 22000 block of Bombay Avenue. They approached him and he appeared surprised; they asked what he was doing. He held up a cigarette and asked if they had a light. The woman gave him a box of matches and told him to leave, which he did. They said they thought he was in their home to rob them. A BOLO was issued to deputies.
At 8:50 p.m. Sunday, deputies responded to an unrelated call to 4324 Conway Boulevard concerning Demers stealing a laptop from his girlfriend in their home. His girlfriend said Demers has a serious drug addiction and over the past year has stolen other electronic items in the home and selling them for drugs or drug money. Deputies met with Demers and later recovered the laptop from a man on Coulton Avenue in exchange for a debt owed by Demers.
Demers was positively identified as the man who entered the two women’s home earlier Sunday and charged with Burglary. Demers was also arrested for Grand Theft and Dealing in Stolen Property for the computer theft. He was transported to the Charlotte County Jail where he was additionally charged with Violation of Probation from previous arrests. This is his fifth booking and he remains in jail on no bond.
