BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — He is just 19 years old but has been arrested three times by Boca Raton Police — all during the month of July. Now, Logan Yannie is behind bars again, this time charged with two counts of burglary. In two arrests that led to Boca Police issuing a media release, Yannie was arrested on July 4th for loitering then again on July 5th for grand theft.
In his latest arrest, Yannie allegedly stole change from a car — opening the door and leaving with a cup full of coins. This happened in plain view of a witness. The breakdown, courtesy Boca PD: 36 quarters, 64 dimes, 33 nickels, and 119 pennies. Total: $23.79.
He is now being held in the Palm Beach County Jail $6,000 bond, or 600,000 pennies.
Here is the press release issued earlier this month after Yannie was arrested twice in two nights.
On Thursday, July 4th at about 1:50 a.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of several suspicious males riding bicycles and looking into cars in the parking lot of 940 Sweetwater Lane.
When officers arrived they saw two males on bikes riding east on Sweetwater Lane. One male dropped his bike and took off running. The second male started to do the same, but stopped when the officer ordered him to. The male, identified as Logan Yannie, told officers he didn’t know the male who was with him. Yannie added that met up with a friend named Kevin and was going to his house in Highland Beach to hang out. Yannie gave conflicting stories about why he was in the area. The witness identified Yannie as one of the males seen looking into cars. Yannie was charged with loitering and prowling and was released with a court date.
On Friday, July 5th at about 2:30 a.m., officers met with two victims at the entrance to the Windwood development, who said their iPhones were taken from their home on SW 17th Court earlier in the evening. Both phones had tracking software and had pinged at 330 Olivewood Place. The victims said an acquaintance, Logan Yannie, had been at their house earlier and lived on Olivewood Place.
The officer made contact with Yannie’s mother and explained the situation. She said her son was sleeping and went to get him. When she returned, she had one of the victim’s cell phone, which she found next to Yannie. Officers then spoke with Yannie, who admitted to taking the phone, but said it was by mistake. He also admitted he made no attempt to return the phone. Yannie was arrested and charged with grand theft.
