Police: DNA links Miami man to Keys break-in; he's accused of stealing TV, eating food, playing video games

A Miami man who allegedly broke into a home March 28 in Key Largo is now sitting in the Keys jail on felony counts of burglary and theft.



The Monroe County Sheriff's Office said Jorge Moreno, 25, was arrested on a warrant in Miami-Dade County Aug. 15 and was brought to the Keys Wednesday to face the charges.



Agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said the burglary occurred in the area of mile marker 96. A maintenance man for the property called the Sheriff's Office the morning of the break-in after finding the home's front door and a sliding glass door open. He discovered a television and five fishing rods and reels missing. Kitchen cabinets and liquor bottles were left open, and there was evidence someone ate and played video games there.



Blood was found on the end of the coaxial cable that had been attached to the missing TV. It was collected as evidence and sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for testing.



On July 21, the lab report ID'd the suspect as Moreno.
