Two teens arrested for burglary of Cape Coral vehicles


CAPE CORAL, Fla. – Two teenagers are arrested after being caught breaking into a vehicle in Cape Coral.

Cape Coral Police arrested 18-year-old Jason McGee and 17-year-old Timothy Gibson.

Officers responded to a burglary in progress at 2600 NW 5th Place around 2:00 Wednesday morning.

The victim says they woke up to a loud noise and noticed two men trying to break into their locked vehicle in the driveway.

As police arrived on the scene, they found two men in the area that matched the victims description.

Police say McGee surrendered himself immediately but Gibson ran away.

Cape Coral Police say Gibson was hiding in a nearby porta potty.


Officers say Gibson and McGee got away with a Batman wallet and crocs.

“There was also a wallet that was tossed in the actual portapotty. It looks like the subject was possible looking to conceal items or get rid of evidence,” Cape Coral Police Public Affairs Officer Brandon Sancho said.

Police say Gibson and McGee admitted to the crimes.

“They stated that they were short on money and they had plotted this plan to burglarize these vehicles in order to collect some cash,” Sancho said.

The teens were arrested and charged with burglary of a conveyance. Gibson faces an additional charge of resisting arrest.

Cape Coral Police say Gibson and McGee could be facing more charges if more victims come forward.
