PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Detectives have arrested a man in connection with the attempted burglary of Charlotte Pharmacy that occurred November 13th.

31-year-old Levi Jones was charged with attempted burglary.

Police say the owner of Charlotte Pharmacy located at 3231 Tamiami Trail reported that someone had attempted to break into the building. The victim provided detectives with security footage that showed a suspect dressed in full military-style camouflage fatigues, trying to pry open the rear business door.

After releasing an image from the scene to the public, officials were able to identify the suspect as Jones. They received information that Jones had been staying with a friend in the North Port area.

When detectives spoke with the friend in North Port, she identified Jones as the person wearing the camouflage clothing in the photo and video.  She also implicated Jones in a theft she had reported to North Port authorities on November 13 in which her wedding ring set was taken from her house.

Charlotte County detectives located a pawn transaction in which Jones sold two rings to a local business. The North Port victim positively identified the rings at the pawn shop as her stolen rings. Detectives arrested Jones on charges of dealing in stolen property.

As a result of their investigation, detectives got a search warrant for Jones’ residence and located camouflage clothing that appeared to match what was seen in the surveillance video. They also located work boots and steel crow bars.  They charged Jones with the attempted burglary.

Jones is being held at the Charlotte County Jail on a total $30,000 bond.
