It was double trouble when a set of twins broke into a Parkland home in May, however, with the help of Coral Springs Police, deputies would quickly crack the case that would lead to their identities.
Coral Springs Talk is not releasing their names because the brothers are 16 and attend high school near Lauderhill.
According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, on May 26, the twins entered the victims property in Pine Tree Estates and used a glass punch device to break the rear sliding glass door on the home to gain entry. The home alarm system went off, possibly thwarting the suspects from entering without property being taken.
The homeowner, who had video surveillance, captured a clear image of both suspects. The Coral Springs Police Department had a similar type burglary attempt close this location and they were able to locate and process the finger prints left behind. Identification was made on one of the brother’s prints and subsequently it was learned that he had a twin brother. Both identities were confirmed using the surveillance video.
According to the arrest report dated one day after the crime took place, both of the suspects were charged with a probation violation as well as charged with burglary, possession of burglary tools with the intent to use, grand theft, and for resisting officer without violence.
Because of their age, they were taken to the Juvenile Detention Center, and have been released to home detention.
