Three Florida men are accused of breaking into a Naples man's home and stealing electronics, jewelry and other items. Deputies say they also face charges for being in possession of marijuana plants.
Maurice Felder, 20, of Sunrise, Tevin Boatwright, 18, of Fort Lauderdale, and Jean Barry, 20, of Fort Lauderdale, were arrested Wednesday by Collier deputies at mile marker 83 on Interstate 75.
According to arrest reports, the victim reported his home was burglarized between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The victim told deputies numerous pieces of jewelry, money, and electronics were stolen during the incident.
A specific pillow case was also reported missing from the home, which the victim believed may have been used to carry the stolen items, according to reports.
The suspects, Boatwright, Jean and Felder, were encountered during a traffic stop on Interstate 75 and were immediately detained due to deputies spotting two potted marijuana plants sitting in plain view in the back seat of their vehicle, according to reports.
They were then transported to the Collier County Substation where they were further questioned.
Deputies said Jean provided them with the false name of Michael Boatwright several times and with a false birthdate, stating he was a minor.
A search was conducted on the suspect's car which revealed jewelry sitting on the front passenger seat, a flat panel television, an apple desktop computer, a ring box, and the pillow case described by the victim, according to reports.
Boxwright, Felder, and Barry all face felony charges of grand theft, burglary and cultivation of marijuana. Barry faces an additional charge of providing law enforcement with false information.
