MARCO ISLAND, Fla. — The Marco Island Police Department has made an arrest in connection to two burglary incidents that happened on September 29.

22-year-old Pedro Julio Banos Castillo was interviewed by law enforcement on October 11 and subsequently placed under arrest on two counts of burglary, one county of grand theft and one county of petit theft.

This investigation is still ongoing. Police were initially searching for a total of three suspects.

The first burglary took place at the Marco Island Yacht Club on Collier Blvd. Three suspects took electronic equipment from the restaurant in the club.

The second burglary was at the Island Country Club on Nassau Rd. Suspects entered an outbuilding on the golf course and took a small amount of food.
