Three Broward County men suspected in a number of pillowcase burglaries in Martin County and throughout the state were charged with residential burglary, grand theft, and possession of burglary tools last night after detectives served a search warrant on their rental car.

19-year old Marcus Strong, 20-year old Gary Taylor, and 18-year old Tracy Coley were charged after detectives found jewelry, cash and property belonging to victims in at least three cases, possibly more.

Thousands of dollars in cash, jewelry, coins and personal heirlooms were stolen from homes in Indiantown, on Jupiter Island and in Stuart.

Following the burglaries in Martin County, a BOLO (Be On the Look Out) was issued for the suspect vehicle.

Uniform Patrol Deputy Derek Brieske noticed the suspect vehicle headed toward the Florida Turnpike in Palm City. Deputy Brieske then conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle. The driver, Marcus Strong, was driving with a suspended license.

Detectives also recovered three distinctive medals inside the vehicle and are trying to track the owner of this property. They do have an inscription on the back, which will be used to properly identify the person they belong to. If you have any information on who these medals might belong to, please call the Martin County Sheriff’s Office.
