Teenager arrested for burglarizing school
Boca Raton, FL – On Saturday, September 21, just after 10:00 a.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to Saint Andrews School, 3900 Jog Road, to investigate a burglary. Two rooms in the middle school were entered through a window and a Samsung television, MacBook, iMac and about $100 in cash were taken.
While officers were investigating the burglary, a resident in the 3000 block of NW 29th Avenue called police when her grandson, Brandon Bayer, invited several suspicious males into her home without her consent. When the resident confronted the males, they quickly left the residence leaving behind an unknown female who was sleeping in the driveway.
Officers met with the resident and due to the home’s close proximity to Saint Andrews School and an earlier call involving several suspicious males, including a neighborhood teenager, officers asked to search the resident’s property. The resident consented to a search of her property, including a shed in the back yard. When officers opened the door to the shed, they found a flat screen Samsung television and an iMac desktop computer. Saint Andrews School officials identified the items as belonging to the school.
As officers spoke with Bayer, he pulled a wad of cash from his front pocket. Bayer said he got the money, about $40.00, from a friend. Officers arrested Bayer and charged him with burglary, grand theft and a criminal conspiracy. After his arrest, Bayer told detectives that he committed the burglary of Saint Andrews School.
The investigation is on-going; and if anyone has information about this crime, they are asked to call Detective Mark Horowitz at (561) 338-1392 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers (800) 458-TIPS.
