Boca Raton, FL It was excellent investigative and surveillance work that led to the arrest of two suspects wanted in connection with numerous burglaries to a Subway and Dunkin Donuts in Boca Raton and other cities throughout South Florida.
The first incident occurred on March 15, 2010. That's when someone broke into the Subway restaurant at 1295 West Palmetto Park Road. After smashing the front window, the suspect jumped over the counter and stole the cash register. Video from the store's security cameras showed a short black male, with a thin build, wearing a black jacket and baseball hat. Three days later, investigators received information that a person indentified as Zeffery Lundy, was suspected of breaking into Dunkin Donuts stores in another city, using a similar method as the Boca Raton Subway case. It was noted that Lundy was driving a green Dodge Stratus with Florida tag A715LC.
In the early morning hours of April 22, 2010, a detective in the Boca Raton Police Special Investigations Unit spotted a green Dodge Stratus near the Dunkin Donuts at 1215 West Palmetto Park Road. A check of the tag showed it matched the same car driven by Lundy in the previous incidents. After the vehicle left, the detective conducted a check of the business and noticed the front glass doors and a window were shattered, but because of hurricane window film, the glass stayed attached and entry wasn't gained. Another detective stopped Lundy on Interstate 95 in Boca Raton. Detectives watched the store video from Dunkin Donuts and matched the images to Lundy.
The suspect's vehicle contained numerous bottles of Patron Tequila and Newport cigarettes that were later found to be stolen earlier in the evening from a liquor store in another jurisdiction. The driver, Zeffery Lundy, was arrested for driving with a suspended license. His passenger, Jonathan Levonte-Keith Burington, was arrested after he was found in possession of cocaine. Both suspects were also charged with Burglary to a structure and possession of stolen property.
