Key Haven – An 18 year old Key Haven resident has been charged with three more burglaries as detectives continue to trace stolen property found in his bedroom during a search warrant last week.
18 year old Ryan Tomita has been charged with entering two unlocked vehicles on 7th Avenue West, Cudjoe Key in February. He took a digital camera from one and a GPS from the other. Both the items were found in his bedroom during the search warrant. He has also been charged with breaking into a home on Barbuda Lane on Ramrod Key sometime between March 13th and April 4th. He pried open a sliding glass door, taking a flat screen television, a metal detector and an underwater camera all of which were later located in his bedroom. During the break-in, he smashed a closet door, and ransacked the contents of the closet.
Tomita, who already faces multiple burglary counts, is additionally charged with two counts each of vehicle burglary and theft, and residential burglary, criminal mischief and grand theft. Detective Diane Mimosa, who is heading up the investigation into Tomita’s crimes, says more charges are expected.
