BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca Raton Police charged four young men for their alleged roles in burglaries to homes in the City of Boca Raton. It was good old fashioned police work that led to the arrests. The men charged, however, are apparently not suspected in a major residential burglary in Boca Falls, a large gated development west of 441 between Glades Road and Palmetto Park Road. A home was burglarized there earlier in the month.
Here is the official report from City of Boca Raton Police:
“Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of an alarm sounding at a home in the 5200 block of Deerhurst Crescent Circle.
The witness told officers he heard the alarm then saw a male,
later identified as Charles Murrell, 17 from Lauderdale Lakes, walking from the front area of the home and get into a blue Saturn. Officers checked the residence and found the backdoor pried open and the bedroom ransacked. Tac Team officers responded to the area located and stopped the vehicle on Military Trail, just south of SW 18th Street. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Stephon Rich, 18, from Pompano Beach. Tac Team officers located two other males, matching the description given by the witness, walking west on SW 18th Street. The witness identified one male, Charles Murrell, as the person he saw walking away from the house.
All three were arrested and charged with burglary to a dwelling.
Less than two hours later officers responded to a report of a house alarm going off at 85 Lariat Circle. The first officer who arrived on scene started checking the house when he found a rusted outdoor chair under a window on the side of the house. The window, which was made of impact glass did not shatter, but was loosened enough to push in and climb through. A perimeter was quickly established and K-9 conducted a search inside the residence but the suspect had already left.
A few minutes later officers from the Tac Team located a suspicious person later identified as Yves Gissomme. Gissomme gave officers and detectives a number of different stories as to why he was in the area. Gissomme also had fresh cuts to his face and neck and gave conflicting stories as to how he received the injuries.. A short time later a large bag was located in the bushes near Suncoast Church. Some of the items in the bag were identified by the victim of the burglary on Lariat Circle.
Yves Gissomme, 6/26/86 from Boca Raton, was arrested and charged with burglary to a dwelling.”
