Man charged with burglary

SEBRING Video recordings and a signature helped lead to the arrest of one suspect following a car break-in, according to a warrant affidavit released Thursday. Luis Daniel Febres-Carrasquillo, 21, 1732 S. Congress Ave., Lot/Apt. 154, Palm Springs, was arrested Wednesday and charged with giving false information to a pawnbroker, armed burglary of a dwelling, structure or conveyance, third-degree grand theft, dealing in stolen property, use or possession of another person’s identification without consent and credit card fraud. The arrest came a couple of weeks after a man and a woman who ate at a Sebring restaurant left and found that one or more persons broke into their vehicle and stole several items, including a Glock brand firearm and a purse that included debit, credit cards and an electric funds transfer card for child support funds, the affidavit said. It indicated that video surveillance at Wal-Mart indicated that the child support card was used to buy three Apple iPads.
The next day video and other records indicated that Febres-Carrasquillo or someone using his identity had pawned an iPad – believed to be one of the ones bought with the stolen child support card – and received $200, the affidavit said. Febres-Carrasquillo or someone with his Florida ID card signed a paper that he owned the iPad, the report said.
