SEBASTIAN – Tuesday afternoon, Sebastian Police Officer Bauer received a report of a burglary where several guns were stolen; one being an assault-style rifle.

Ofc. Bauer and Cpl. Bruckner began piecing together the facts of the case and developed a suspect through criminal intelligence.

The burglary was processed by Crime Scene Technician Coppola who acquired several fingerprints from the residence, while K9 Officers Cole and Kyzer deployed their dogs and recovered items of stolen property.

Detective Miller was called out and interviewed the two juvenile suspects identified by Ofc. Bauer and Cpl. Bruckner.

As a result, Det. Miller obtained confessions from both.

All of the stolen weapons were recovered along with other stolen property.

Both suspects were charged and detained at the Department of Juvenile Justice. Detective Miller was able to obtain information about other recent burglaries, and more charges may follow.

“We are very fortunate to have been able to solve this crime so quickly,” Chief Michelle Morris stated. “I am proud of the teamwork and diligence of all our personnel in ensuring the safety our community.”
