BOCA RATON, FL ( — We told you Friday about a major police scene in the area of St. Andrews and Potomac. We now know that Boca Raton Police nabbed three suspected burglars who had been under surveillance from a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office helicopter and — as it turns out — police departments from throughout the area.

According to an Affidavit of Probable Cause, area police departments were on alert for a vehicle being tracked by a PBSO helicopter mid-day Friday. The vehicle was believed to be involved with a break-in somewhere else in the county.

While that was belief was unfounded, it turned out the cops were following the vehicle as it entered the Millpond community and two men got out. Through what appears to be solid police work by Boca Raton PD, and incredible stupidity by the alleged burglars, the men were seen running a long a canal that borders several homes.

subjects previously observed by a detective. One subject, later identified as h/m Adalberto
J. Montalvo (03-04-84), was located in a tree near 3339 NW 23rd Terrace. The second
subject, later identified as b/m Quinton R. Sylvestre (11-01-86), was located in bushes
outside 3399 NW 23rd Terrace. These subjects were later identified by the detective  as the
same subjects he had seen walking along the east side of the community along the canal.
When apprehended the subjects were sweating profusely.

Police arrested Quinton Sylvestre, Adalberto J. Montalvo, and Samuel Walker. They were charged with burglary related offenses and booked into the Palm Beach County Jail.
