Boca Raton, FL – On Sunday, February 10, 2013, at about 7:30 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to burglary at Talia’s Tuscan Table restaurant, 4070 North Dixie Highway. A witness saw a male exit the smashed out front door of the business, then leave in a beat up white pickup truck with front end damage. The witness described the suspect as a Hispanic male about 5’11” tall, with tattoos on both arms. Officers determined that cash was taken from the register.

Shortly thereafter, the PBSO detective contacted the Boca Raton detective and said he had identified the suspect as William Finkle, who had been incarcerated at the Palm Beach County Jail for attempted homicide since February 13th.
Detectives spoke with one of Finkle’s family members, who identified Finkle as the person seen in the surveillance video during the burglary of Talia’s. The family member also said Finkle drove an older model Dodge pickup truck with front end damage.
Detectives charged Finkle with burglary to a business and petit theft.
