Police say a man responsible for a string of small business burglaries has been arrested.

Cape Coral Police said Aaron Michael Moench broke into five businesses in Cape Coral in 2022.

Detectives said he was initially caught during another burglary in Fort Myers, but he bonded out of jail and left the area before he could be charged with the Cape Coral burglaries.

The U.S. Marshal’s task force eventually tracked him down. Business owners victimized in the burglaries told WINK News the arrest brings them some peace of mind.

“We got a call from the officer saying that they caught the guy, and it was a relief because we wanted to feel safe. It was sad, because this is a small business,” said Jessenia Beltran, owner of Computer Liquidation Store.

Moench faces 18 charges. He is currently in Lee County Jail.
