Observant neighbor helps police catch suspected car burglar  

An observant neighbor helped Key West police catch a suspected car burglar early this morning.

The man apparently interrupted the burglar, who fled on his bicycle. The Flagler Avenue resident said when he got home at about 2:30 a.m., he noticed a bicycle lying next to his grandfather’s car parked in front of his house. Then he saw someone fumbling around inside the car with the light on. The man called Key West police.

The resident gave Officer Lisa Caicedo a detailed description of the suspect and his bicycle. She broadcast that to officers in the area and, soon, Officer Jayce Politoski found him and held him until Caicedo brought the neighbor there. The neighbor positively identified the man as the man he saw in the car. Caicedo arrested Jose Adel Rodriguez, 27, of Key West, for burglary of a conveyance.
