CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's detectives Thursday night located and arrested the fourth person in the Whidden Industrial Park business burglary case. A 17-year-old Deep Creek boy has been arrested and charged with Burglary and Grand Theft.
The juvenile was one of the four involved in the burglary Wednesday night at B&M Auto Group, 4127 James Street. The business was broken into and a flat screen television valued at $400 was stolen. A witness saw the four behind businesses and called the Sheriff’s Office. The CCSO helicopter was in the area and quickly spotted three of the subjects get into a car and with night vision FLIR equipment, followed the fleeing car until road deputies made a traffic stop.
Two juvenile brothers from Fort Myers and Vincent Lamar Williams, 20, of Lehigh Acres were previously arrested. The latest 17-year-old arrested fled the burglary scene and the detective’s investigation learned that he was the fourth person involved.
The boy was transported to the Charlotte County Jail where he was booked and then taken to the Department of Juvenile Justice center in Fort Myers. Both of the juvenile brothers remain in the DJJ center. Williams was released after posting a $5,000 bond.
