A napping burglar was arrested in a Lady Lake home Sunday morning by Lady Lake police officers.
A homeowner in the 400 block of Winners Circle in Lady Lake arrived home at 7:30 a.m. Sunday and discovered that her back door had been kicked in. Clothing, jewelry, and electronics had been taken from her home. The homeowner immediately called 911 and officers of the Lady Lake Police Department responded. Officers apprehended one of
the suspects, 21-year-old Domonique Pinkard of Lady Lake, who was still inside the residence, asleep on the victim’s couch. Pinkard had stolen jewelry in his possession, police officers said. Officers continued their investigation and apprehended the second suspect, 20-year-old Julian Evangelist also of Lady Lake, nearby.
The remaining stolen property was recovered at that address. Pinkard told the arresting officer that he sat on the victim’s couch while Evangelist carried the victim’s television out of her house and he fell asleep.
Both suspects were transported to the Lake County Jail without incident.
