DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A man cleaning houses in the area is now in police custody after he was allegedly caught — on video tape — swiping personal possessions from a house he was cleaning. Joshua Housen is being held in the Palm Beach County Jail.
According to the Delray Beach Police Department:
Delray Beach Police Detectives arrested Joshua Housen for Grand Theft and assisted other agencies in identifying him as a suspect in other cases in their jurisdictions. Through their investigation, Delray Beach Police Detectives developed Joshua Housen as a suspect in a case from July 5, 2013, where he removed property from a house in Delray Beach that he was hired to clean. On July 10, 2013, Detectives worked with the cleaning company owner to find out where Housen would be working that day. Detectives set up video equipment in the apartment and in an adjacent apartment and watched Joshua Housen remove property from the residence. Upon arrest, Detectives located the property that they saw him steal in his right sock. They also found property that they determined had been stolen from another residence located in Boca Raton. Joshua Housen told Detectives about other houses that he had been hired to clean and had removed property from. Detectives contacted the Boca Raton Police Department and they were able to make an arrest based on the Delray Beach Police Department’s Detective’s interview of Housen and the property found on him at the time of arrest.
