3-30-17 Multiple Business Burglaries Cleared by Arrest

The businesses were burglarized and vandalized in the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 28, 2017. In less than 48 hours a CPD Burglary detective was able to gather minimum intel, surveillance video and limited evidence to connect, locate and arrest two juveniles to the string of criminal activity.

At Armando's Restaurant located at 4757 Hwy 58 the suspects were captured on video breaking the glass out of the front door and ransacking the business. The suspects also stole an undetermined amount of cash along with three cupcakes.

Turtle Tax located at 4762 Hwy 58, Cindy's Custom Cakes located at 4830 Hwy 58, and China Garden located at 4829 Hwy 58 were also broken into and ransacked in the same manner. Additionally, various items of opportunity were stolen from Cindy's Custom Cakes and China Garden.

At each location, the damage done was more expensive for the victimized businesses to repair than any dollar amount that was taken, making an already bad situation worse for these local small business owners. Fortunately, the detective handling all four cases discovered Tuesday morning was able to identify and locate the juvenile suspects by late Wednesday.

During the interview process both suspects admitted to committing these burglaries and were ultimately transferred to the juvenile detention center. They are charged with four counts each of F​elony Burglary and Vandalism.
