A Key West man was arrested Thursday night, charged with burglarizing his ex-girlfriend’s house.
The victim called the Sheriff’s Office at 10:45 p.m. to report her ex-boyfriend was outside her house, pounding on the doors and windows trying to get in. She said she’d locked herself inside with her kids because she was afraid of him.
When Deputies Alexandra Davis and Denise Dery arrived at the house on Sugarloaf Boulevard, they found a silver colored truck parked outside; the suspect, identified as 40 year old Wade Beeman, had entered the house using a hidden key. The victim and her children were locked in the bathroom.
They searched the house for the suspect and did not find him. It appears he left the house through sliding glass doors in the bedroom. When the deputies went back outside, the silver truck, which belongs to Beeman, was gone.
The victim said the only thing missing from the house was two copies of her house keys.
Deputy Davis made contact with Beeman by phone and he agreed to meet with her at his home on Trinity Drive in Key West. He was arrested at that location. He was charged with burglary to an occupied dwelling and theft and he was taken to jail.
