Man Charged In String of NN Car Break-Ins

Deputies arrested a Lee County man Wednesday and charged him in connection with seven car burglaries in Pelican Bay.

Christopher Michael Poore, 22, of Bonita Springs was charged with multiple counts of burglary and petty theft and one count of grand theft.

Arrest reports say the burglaries occurred in the early morning hours in south Pelican Bay in North Naples. All of the vehicles were unlocked and parked in driveways in front of houses, deputies say.

Credit cards were reported stolen from inside one of the vehicles. Further investigation by deputies revealed the credit cards had been used at several locations around Bonita Springs, reports said.
