Pair of thieving maids arrested in Cape Coral
CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Two women who used a cleaning service as a cover to commit burglary have been arrested, the Cape Coral Police Department said Thursday.
Bobbie Condon, 33, and Stacy Pastoriza Vasques, 29, are facing multiple charges including armed burglary and grand theft.
On Wednesday, Cape Coral police responded to a burglary in the 900 block of SE 43 Terrace.
The victim, Dwight Williams, reported that a 9 mm pistol, an iPad, and laptop had been stolen from his home.
Earlier in the day, Williams was on his way out of his home when he says two women were soliciting their cleaning service, “said she wanted to look around and give me an estimate.”
Williams says one woman went inside his house, took a look around, gave him a quote and left. He also left a short while later but when he returned home, Williams saw the women’s car speeding away from his house.
“I’d recognized the car from the two ladies that had came earlier,” Williams said. “I came in and immediate noticed some things were missing.”
Officials located the suspects at a home on the 4000 block of SE 19th Avenue. Vasques and Condon threw multiple stolen items into a pool trying to hide them from authorities, police said, but the stolen 9mm pistol was found in the suspect’s vehicle.
Both Vasques and Condon were arrested and transported to Lee County Jail.
