DEERFIELD — District 4

Feb. 18 BSO deputies working a burglary operation in the Gates of Hillsboro stopped two suspicious people soliciting door to door.  One suspect was in the country illegally and had an extensive criminal past.  He was handed over to Immigration authorities for further investigation.  These suspects are not connected to recent burglaries in the area. Deputies are continuing their efforts to apprehend those responsible.

Feb. 18 BSO deputies responded to the 3200 block of SW 1 Street in Deer Run after an alert neighbor witnessed a suspect remove fishing poles from a residence. Deputies used the information to locate and arrest the suspect near Century Village and Hillsboro boulevards. Suspect was charged with burglary and petit theft. (This is another great example of community policing at work.)

Feb. 22 Male teen was observed knocking on the doors of homes in the Deer Run neighborhood Tuesday morning around 11 a.m.  Resident who reported the activity thought it was suspicious because the young man did not appear to have a reason for approaching these homes. The resident also observed the teen approach a white older model car that had been circling the neighborhood.
