BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Broward Sheriff’s Office took a trip to Boca Raton to nab 28 year old Allen Perez of Wyoming Court. Detectives say Perez posed as a delivery man to rob several people throughout the area.

From BSO:

Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested the armed robber who posed as a UPS delivery man Monday night. BSO’s Robbery, Fugitive and Crime Scene units, working in conjunction with Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office Robbery and SWAT, executed a warrant at the home of Allen Perez in Boca Raton.

Perez, 28, was linked to the armed robbery committed Feb 27 in Pompano Beach by evidence he left at the scene, as well as by witness accounts. He is currently on probation in Palm Beach County for aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony committed in New York state. Detectives found several items directly linking Perez to this robbery in his car and his home. Perez will be charged with robbery with a firearm and aggravated assault. Detectives believe that Perez may have committed other similar robberies in the area.

On the afternoon of Feb 27, Marie Jean Pierre, 65, heard a knock at the door of her home in Pompano Beach. The man at the door identified himself as a UPS delivery man and told Pierre he had a package for which she needed to sign. Pierre opened the door, and as she grabbed the clipboard, the man pulled out a handgun from his waistband. Pierre quickly shoved the suspect away and began to scream for help in the front yard. The man ran to his car to leave but noticed a neighbor had come outside. Claudia Kretzer, 44, heard Pierre’s screams and came out to see what was happening. The armed robber noticed Kretzer holding her phone and assumed that the neighbor had taken a picture of him or his car. He wrestled Kretzer to the ground and stole her phone. The man dropped two packages in the victim’s yard as he fled. The first box was empty; the second contained eight zip ties and a roll of duct tape.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact BSO Detective Scott Nida at 954-321-4249 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or www.browardcrimestoppers.org.
