Alert neighbor foils burglary; three arrested

Key Largo – Three people were arrested for burglary after an alert neighbor spotted them trying to force their way into a Key Largo home and confronted them.

The neighbor saw a car drive up to a home on Bowen Drive at 8:40 p.m. Thursday. He walked over and saw two men and a woman. One man was trying to pry open a screen door on the house. The second man was trying to pry open a shed door. The woman was standing beside their vehicle. When he asked them what they were doing, they said they were “looking for family” then they ran to their vehicle and fled.

The neighbor was able to get the license tag number of the vehicle the three suspects fled in. He called the Sheriff’s Office, giving dispatchers the tag number, vehicle description and details of what he had seen.

A notice to be on the lookout for the vehicle was issued over police radios and the car was spotted in Islamorada. It was stopped by Deputy Nestor Argote at the 88.9 mile marker of the highway. The witness was brought to the scene of the stop where he identified all three suspects. A pry bar was found in the rear pocket of the driver’s side seat. Other tools were found in the vehicle as well.

25 year old Yasmany Caballero, 27 year old Judit Reynoso and 31 year old Yosvany Sosa, all Miami residents, were  arrested.  All three were charged with burglary and possession of burglary tools. Their car, a 2010 Honda Accord, was seized for possible forfeiture.
