Cape Coral Teen Arrested for Vehicle Break-Ins

A Cape Coral mother let police search her son’s room late Thursday night.

That’s when officers found evidence they say linked Jameson Topps to a string of recent car burglaries near the 2700 block of SW Embers Terrace. Topps is in the Juvenile Assessment Center and faces charges of burglary and grand theft.

Here’s what happened. Cape Coral Police say a thief took several key fobs from one of the cars. No word on how officers suspected Topps, but they asked his mom if they could search his room, and she said yes.

Right there on the dresser: the missing key fobs.
