Cape police property crimes unit files 46 felony charges against 19 burglary suspects in November
Cape Police detectives with the Property Crimes Unit in Investigative Services in November arrested 19 suspects believed to be involved in at least a dozen burglaries throughout the city.
The suspects were charged with 46 felony counts, most of which were for burglary and larceny – grand theft. Many of the burglaries of unoccupied dwellings. Two additional suspects were arrested and charged with loitering and prowling.
Some of the suspects were charged with more than one burglary, officials said.
In addition to taking these 19 suspects into custody, Property Crimes detectives obtained seven warrants for the arrests of nine more suspects and initiated two search warrants.
“Property crimes statistically are some of the most difficult crimes to solve as the goal of the perpetrator is to avoid being caught,” said Capt. Mike Urraro of the Investigative Services Bureau in a prepared statement. “The results from November are a reflection of the excellent work our Property Unit detectives continue to do.”
