Tactical Team arrests two suspected burglars
GPS unit programmed with park and gym locations
Boca Raton, FL – On Tuesday, September 27 at about 11:20 a.m., a Boca Raton Police Tactical Team was on routine surveillance in the area of 1300 West Palmetto Park Road when they saw a silver Toyota Camry traveling west. The officer saw that the license plate was obscured by a smoked covering and neither the driver nor the passenger was wearing seat belts.
The officer stopped the vehicle and made contact with the driver, identified as Kung Baker, and the passenger, identified as Darren Webb. The officer immediately smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle and when Baker opened the door, the officer saw two window punches in the driver’s door pocket. These punches are frequently used by burglars. Baker told officers he has a mobile auto detailing business and was in Boca Raton for business, although officers found no auto detailing products or equipment with him. Webb told officers the car was rented by his girlfriend and she had allowed them to drive it. Officers found a bag containing marijuana in Webb’s clothing.
Officers located a cell phone in the car which was stolen in an auto burglary that occurred in Wichita, Kansas. They also located two GPS units in the car; one had been programmed with the addresses of City of Boca Raton parks and area fitness centers. They also found identification and credit cards belonging to at least two people, but were unable to determine if the cards were stolen.
Baker was charged with driving against court imposed restrictions, possession of burglary tools, and theft. Webb was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of burglary tools, and theft.
