Deputies: Man Broke Into Tow Yard

An 18-year-old man is facing a felony charge after deputies say he broke into an Immokalee tow yard after cutting a fence over the weekend.

Nicolas J. Trejo, 313 6th Court S., Immokalee, was charged with burglary.

Arrest reports say owner Keith Heckman Jr. told deputies that his business, Keith’s Towing, 925 E. Delaware Ave., had recently been burglarized. Heckman said he was sitting at his business Saturday, anticipating the burglar’s return.

Heckman told deputies that he saw Trejo sneak up to the fence around his property and then cut it. Trejo then entered the property without permission.

Heckman grabbed Trejo, who broke free from his grasp and ran, reports said. Deputies apprehended Trejo a short distance from the tow yard.
