BOCA RATON, FL ( — While we are unaware of official statistics, it is entirely possible that Boca Raton has either the nosiest or most observant neighbors of any community anywhere in the United States. Yet again, a neighbor thinking something didn’t seem quite right tipped Boca PD. Officers responded and cuffed and stuffed Doerksen Hiebert, 31 years old, from Boca, who was allegedly up to no good.

It happened in the 4900 block of Northwest 3rd Avenue.

From Boca PD:

Shortly before 1:00 pm, a neighbor heard a loud car. When she looked outside, she saw a suspicious person at the rear of her neighbor’s residence. The person was trying to open a door to the home.

Realizing something wasn’t quite right, the neighbor called the Boca Raton Police Services Department. Responding officers found an open rear door, searched the house, but found no one inside the home. At the same time, another BRPD officer saw a male matching the suspect’s description cutting between two houses. That suspect, Doerksen Hiebert, was stopped and a search turned up coins and jewelry. The homeowner was contacted and upon his arrival, confirmed the property on the suspect belonged to him. The original caller was able to identify Hiebert as the suspect she saw in her neighbor’s backyard.

The suspect, Doerksen Hiebert (shown, courtesy Boca Raton PD), was charged with Burglary of a Dwelling and Grand Theft.
