Two brothers, one with a self described drug addiction, have been arrested by Boca Police following a string of residential burglaries in the city and nearby. Boca’s SWAT team executed a warrant at 3698 NE 4th Avenue, finding six people at home and reportedly items stolen from area residences.
During the search, 17 year old Anthony Sasso told Boca detectives that he was responsible for several burglaries including one in the 400 block of NE 37th street, the 500 block of NE 35th Street, and one on East Camino Real. Police say he admitted to taking jewelry, camera equipment, ammunition, and shotgun he traded for marijuana. Sasso was also questioned about a burglary in the 500 block of NE 38th street, but said he has no recollection of the crime, although admitted he had a ‘drug problem’ and may have forgotten about it. The 17 year old also admitted to committing a burglary in Jupiter with his brother Richard, in which police say they stole a number of firearms including a .22 caliber rifle.
Detectives arrested Anthony Sasso and charged him with armed burglary, two counts of burglary, two counts of grand theft, grand theft of a firearm, petit theft, and three counts of criminal mischief and grand theft of a motor vehicle. His brother, Richard Sasso, is charged with grand theft of a fire arm.
Boca Police ask anyone with additional information to please contact Detective Rob Adams at 561-620-6044.
