ORANGE COUNTY, Fla.- There was a major development overnight in the arrests of four men suspected of taking part in several violent home invasions in Collier County. One of the accused suspects is now speaking to Orlando investigators, after being accused of robbing homes there.
Frank Bower is giving away their method and explaining how he got involved with the so-called "ninja robbers."
"It was random. We know the area. They know the area. They're going to go in every time, and as far as the house, it was totally random that day," said Bower.
Surveillance video shows from the moment the so-called ninja burglars entered this Windermere mansion, near Orlando, leading the homeowner inside with his hands tied behind his back. The suspected burglars then ran out with tens of thousands of dollars in property and cash.
Since February, five homes have been targeted in Collier County. Deputies told WINK News the men were suspected in the home invasions in our area.
Bower told investigators the other men recruited him when he was having financial trouble and didn't know they'd been under surveillance.
If convicted in the Orange County home invasion, they could all face life in prison.
