An alert neighbor’s quick actions aided Titusville Police in the arrest of four juveniles suspected of stealing packages from a neighbor’s front porch.
Officers responded to a report of a residential burglary at approximately 3:30 PM on December 11th 2018 on the 1500 block of Meadow Lark Drive.
The preliminary investigation has revealed that a neighbor of one of the victims observed a group of suspects taking packages off their front porch.
The neighbor immediately informed police. Officers located a juvenile male walking in the neighborhood matching the witness’s description. This suspect was taken into custody at that time.
Detectives obtained critical information and surveillance footage, which led to the arrest of a total of four juveniles suspected of multiple citywide burglaries from front porches.
“This is yet another example of one of our citizens helping us apprehend a criminal by seeing something and then saying something", said Titusville Police Deputy Chief Todd Hutchinson.
