Detectives have arrested a North Lauderdale man and two Lauderhill men suspected of committing more than a dozen residential burglaries across Broward County in recent weeks, authorities said.
Jacquon Jackson, 26, of North Lauderdale, along with Roderick Taff, 23, and Jacobi Denmark, 23, both of Lauderhill, were captured by the Broward Sheriff’s Office Burglary Apprehension Team Dec. 3, working in tandem with the Davie Police Department, according to BSO.
According to investigators, Jackson, Taff, and Denmark committed two residential burglaries in Davie on Dec. 3 by smashing into the rear doors of the targeted homes. The three men fled from the scene following the second break-in but were captured a short time later with assistance from BSO’s K-9 Unit, deputies said.
Davie Police arrested the three men for committing the crimes in its jurisdiction, according to BSO. In addition, Jackson is accused of committing residential burglaries in Cooper City and Deerfield Beach, and all three men are suspected of committing more than a dozen residential burglaries throughout Broward County over the past few weeks, deputies said.
The investigation into the other burglaries is ongoing.
Detectives advise residents to make sure their doors and windows are locked, monitor their home alarm system if they have one, and, if not, to consider installing an alarm system.
“If you see something unusual or suspicious in your neighborhood, do not hesitate to call law enforcement,” BSO said in a press release.
