Suspect arrested for breaking into boarded up house
Boca Raton, FL – Investigators from the Boca Raton Police Services Department arrested a suspect for breaking into the same boarded up house on two different occasions. On April 8th, the owner of the property at 201 NE 6th Court reported that someone removed a piece of plywood from the door of the vacant residence. There was no damage, and nothing was missing.
The owner then installed a video surveillance system for the home. On April 29th the owner reported that he captured a white male in the house, and that tools were missing. On May 12th the owner called again because he saw the person captured by his surveillance system back in the area. Officers met with the person, identified as Francisco Lechuga. Lechuga admitted to entering the property, and added that he did so the first time to get out of the rain and the second time to look around.
Francisco Lechuga Moreno was charged with Burglary, Trespassing and Petit Theft.
