2 Charged In Rental Agency Break-In

Two men were arrested Monday after deputies say they broke into a North Naples rental car business, making off with cash and dozens of keys to rental vehicles, which were later recovered by deputies.

Donald Colt Graham, 23, who arrest reports say is homeless, and Levi Zachary Humphrey, 24, 475 Weber Blvd., Golden Gate Estates, were charged with burglary, grand theft and resisting arrest. Graham was also charged with possession of burglary tools and petty theft.

Arrest reports gave this account:

Witnesses reported seeing Graham pry open a window at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, 1024 Pine Ridge Road, enter the business and then leave a short time later with a backpack,
while Humphrey slowly drove around the parking lot in a white Dodge Caliber shortly before 4:30 a.m. Monday.

When deputies arrived Graham and Humphrey were running south from the back of the business toward Costello Drive. Deputies apprehended Graham, but Humphrey refused deputies’ orders to stop and kept running.

Deputies located the Dodge Caliber abandoned in a nearby CVS drugstore parking lot. The vehicle had an unregistered Florida license plate. Further inspection by deputies revealed another Florida plate underneath it registered to Humphrey’s father.

Deputies also found a backpack on the ground along the same path that Graham was running along. The backpack contained two bank deposit bags with cash inside, multiple sets of keys to rental vehicles and a GPS system, all belonging to the rental car agency.

Deputies arrested Humphrey shortly before noon after he showed up at the CVS store, 8863 U.S. 41 N., inquiring about the whereabouts of his vehicle.
