Kyle Sullivan, 36, of Cape Coral, was sentenced to five and a half years in prison followed by one year of probation after stealing a video game system out of a garage.

Sullivan was adjudicated guilty for one count of Burglary of a Dwelling and one count of Grand Theft. He was sentenced as a Habitual Felony Offender on both counts which led to increased prison time.

On December 4, Sullivan entered the victim’s open garage at a Cape Coral home and stole a Nintendo Switch game system. The incident was captured on home surveillance and Sullivan was identified based on a work shirt he had been wearing. The defendant’s employer confirmed his identity on the video.

After being arrested Sullivan showed where he had put the stolen item.

Assistant State Attorney Robert Rodriguez handled the case.
