Update 7:16p: We have learned from sources that the homeowner lost “everything” in this burglary that happened in broad daylight. We’ve also learned that the guard gates have no record of who came in or left before or after the burglary, and that license plates are not being photographed despite cameras being visible at both entrances.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We are awaiting an update from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Department, but homeowners in the gated community of Boca Falls — west of 441 between Palmetto Park and Glades Road — received an email today alerting them of a burglary. It apparently happened Tuesday between 10am and 5:30p.
Local officials recently stated that gated access is merely a deterrent but not a fool-proof way to prevent incidents in communities. This seems to validate that point.
Updates when we receive them.
