Three teens arrested after residential burglary spree
Boca Raton, FL – On Friday January 18th, shortly after 1:00 pm, officers from the Boca Raton Police Tactical Team responded to a residence on SW 17th Street. The home owner called police because someone knocked on her door and when she responded, the person seemed shaken and said he had the wrong house. While searching the area, an officer found a house on SW 20th Avenue with a screen removed from a window. Another officer spotted three suspects matching the description walking down SW 18th Street. While keeping them under surveillance, officers were advised of three more calls from residents in the area, saying three males knocked on their door asking for someone who didn’t live there.
A stop was initiated and all three suspects were questions separately. When questioned as to why they were in that area, one suspect, 17 year old Iorrany Mendes, said they came to play football, but he couldn’t say what neighborhood he was in. The second suspect, 17 year old Calvin Isom, said they were just walking around and denied going into any neighborhoods. Isom had an iPad on him. When asked where he got it, he stated he found it, but couldn’t say where he found it. The third suspect, 17 year old William Vassor also had an iPad in his possession and told officers he also found it. He was in possession of a large screw driver.
One of the victims came to the scene and positively identified all three suspects. A further search of the suspects turned up the following items: a red iPod, a Raiders ring, necklace, $190, two iPads, an iPhone (with the SIM cards removed) and burglary tools. One victim, who said he was in the shower when his house was broken into, positively identified one of the iPads.
All three were charged with Loitering & Prowling, Possession of Stolen Property, Burglary to an Occupied Residence, two counts of Burglary to a Residence, Grand Theft, and two counts of Attempted Burglary. Vassor was also charged with Violation of Probation and Possession of Burglary Tools. Vassor was on probation for a previous Burglary to an Occupied Dwelling.
