Burglar Ran to Cops for Help When Being Chased by Victim

An alleged burglar assisted the police by running up to them and asking them to help him when he was being chased by someone who reportedly caught him trying to break into their home.

On April 29, someone was at their residence in South Creek, Florida, when they caught someone trying to break into the house. The person purported to be the perpetrator began to flee, and the resident chased after them.

A few moments later, the person being chased approached a Coconut Creek Police Department squad car that was stopped at a traffic light. It did not take long for the police to realize the man was being chased by someone who claimed he tried to burglarize their home.

According to reports, he was identified as a 24-year-old man from Pompano Beach. When he was searched by the officers, the man was allegedly found with several things they believed he had stolen.

After further investigation, the police believed the suspect had stolen the goods from a car that was left unlocked. They also learned from a woman who lives in the area that her surveillance camera caught someone on video as they tried to break into her vehicle. She reported that they were unsuccessful because it was locked. The officers believed it was the same suspect.

The man was booked into the Broward County Jail and housed at the Joseph V, Conte Medium Custody Facility. He is facing preliminary charges for two counts of felony unarmed burglary of an unoccupied conveyance, one count of felony burglary of an unoccupied conveyance, and one count of second-degree felony conspiracy, attempt, or solicitation of a crime. According to jail records, he is still incarcerated in lieu of a $6,000 bond.
