Deputies: 2 broke into bowling alley, stole liquor

A Golden Gate man and an East Naples woman are accused of breaking into a local bowling alley and stealing bottles of liquor.

Kelly Komatz, 35, of the 2200 block of 55th Terrace Southwest, and Alicia Lynn-Gillespie, 41, of the 8600 block of Weir Drive, were arrested Wednesday by Collier County sheriff's deputies at Palm Springs Boulevard and Radio Lane.

According to reports, when deputies arrived to Woodside Lanes bowling alley at the 8500 block of Radio Lane, they found Komatz inside the building near the bar area. Deputies said he became startled and fled the scene on foot.

K9 units led deputies through a heavily wooded area near Palm Springs Boulevard where they discovered Komatz and Gillespie lying under some bushes attempting to hide, according to reports.

Deputies said they found a large black bag full of the liquor bottles lying next to Komatz and Gillspie. Also inside the bag was black gloves, a blue torn shirt tied in a knot, a black sweatshirt, binoculars, a screwdriver, and two cell phones.

Deputies also located more liquor bottles in the wooded area along with a pry bar and pink tennis shoes, according to reports.

The number of liquor bottles that were stolen was redacted from reports.

Komatz and Gillespie are facing charges of felony burglary, petit theft, and possession of burglary tools.
