PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's detectives arrested two 17-year-old boys after they burglarized a Port Charlotte home and stole several items.
Deputies observed a blue Dodge Durango parked in a vacant lot on Lake Worth Boulevard early Wednesday morning. The deputy saw someone enter the SUV and then drive away; an investigative traffic stop was made.
The driver told the deputy he dropped off his friend at a residence on Lake Worth Boulevard. The deputy noticed an iPod docking station, a DVD player, a set of knives in the rear of the Durango, and latex gloves on the driver’s floorboard of the vehicle. The SUV was towed and impounded at the CCSO storage lot. At that time the driver was charged with Loitering and Prowling.
Detectives were called out to check the home where the suspect was first seen and discovered it had been burglarized. The out of town owner was contacted and said he did not give permission for anyone to enter his home or take any of his property. The three items found came from the home, and there was a flat screen television sitting on the master bedroom floor that had not been taken.
Both teens were arrested and transported to the Charlotte County Jail. They both were charged with Armed Burglary and Grand Theft.
