A Miami teen staying at an Upper Keys campground was arrested after he was caught on camera burglarizing the housekeeping building at the campground.
Deputies responded to Fiesta Key Campground Saturday at 7:30 a.m. after a housekeeper noticed someone had forced the door open burglarized the building and take several items from inside. A surveillance camera showed a young man wearing shorts and sandals enter the burglarized area. He takes something from a refrigerator, then rummages around in a purse on a table inside, taking a phone charger from the purse. He is seen on video leaving the area on a distinctively styled bicycle.
Deputies Kendall Bailey and Tony Conde drove around the park and found the bike in front of a travel trailer. Inside, they found a young man who looked like the man in the video footage. The man was identified as 19 year ikd Daniel Tabares of Miami. Tabares admitted to “just going around and going into stuff” in the campground. Several bottles of beer were found next to his bed in the trailer. He said he took the beer from a campsite to drink later.
Tabares was arrested. He was charged with burglary, criminal mischief, theft and possession of alcohol by a person under the age of 21. He was booked into jail.
