Detective Robert Dosh, who investigated the case, says 54 year old Marcos Luis Diaz entered the lower portion of the home on October 1st. He found a pickax inside which he used to force open an inner door. He stole six fishing reels, a pressure washer and an air conditioner from inside. He said he did it because he was angry with the victim, who was his former landlord.
The stolen items were found in various locations around the Islamorada area and were returned to the victim. Diaz was arrested. He was charged with criminal mischief, burglary, possession of burglary tools and grand theft. He was booked into jail.
