They went to Jared’s
Then went to jail

Boca Raton, FL – On Tuesday, December 10, at about 3:15 a.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to an alarm at Jared Jewelers, 2050 NW Executive Center Circle. Arriving officers found an electrical panel, which had been tampered with, and a crow bar on the ground next to it. To the rear of the business, they found a ladder leading to the roof. On the roof, officers discovered a hole, which had been cut in the sheet metal giving access to the interior of the business. Inside, officers found the wires to the security system had been cut.

Several responding units saw a suspicious vehicle leaving the area and stopped it. The officers made contact with the driver, Gennier Gonzalez, and two passengers, Maykel Hernandez and Yoandry Rodriguez-Cueto. All three occupants told officers they had just left a friend’s house, although they could not provide the name or address of their friend and the area surrounding the jewelry store is strictly commercial. As they continued to try and explain their actions, their stories became more inconsistent and improbable. When the officers looked inside the car, they saw several different tools in plain sight. Gonzalez allowed officers to search the car and they found two black ski masks, cutting tools, including a blade used for cutting sheet metal, a battery powered grinder, three cell phones, gloves, and a wet shirt. Hernandez was shirtless and shoeless.

Officers arrested all three suspects for loitering and prowling. Other officers on the scene at Jared’s found shoeprints on the roof, which were consistent with the footwear of two of the suspects. The sprinklers were also on around the building, which would account for the wet shirt inside the car. Due to the totality of evidence and circumstances, officers also charged Gonzalez, Hernandez and Cueto with burglary to a business, criminal mischief, possession of burglary tools, and conspiracy.
