A sizable police presence is in place and searching for a suspected burglar believed to have made his way into a home in the area of El Curtola Boulevard and Juanita Drive Friday night.
The suspect, described only as a black male in dark clothing, is believed to have entered a home and taken items – possibly a firearm. Other guns were reportedly found discarded outside the residence.
Police from multiple jurisdictions quickly arrived to lock down the neighborhood and undertake a search for the suspect. Officers could be seen checking an unfamiliar car found in the neighborhood and possibly abandoned by the suspect.
A sheriff’s helicopter is currently (9:55pm) overhead with – many – police establishing perimeter positions in the area.
Police called off their search and pulled down their perimeter shortly before midnight. The suspect remains at large.
