BOCA RATON, FL ( — Solid observations by neighbors and quick work by Boca Raton police officers led to the arrests of two young men who were — allegedly — attempting to break into cars.

Casey Berka, 20,  and Set Dierksen, 18,  were arrested for “loitering and prowling” in the 600 Block of NW 13th Street after a neighbor called police to report two “suspicious persons” going between vehicles and testing out door handles.

Berka fled when he was told to “stop” by Boca Police.

The person who called the police positively identified the two men during the modern-day equivalent of a “line up.”

They were taken to Palm Beach County Jail

Incidentally, Berka is no stranger to Boca Raton Police. He was arrested over the summer for marijuana possession with intent to sell.
