Lake City Police first responded to the Tire Mart at around 5:50 a.m. after an employee opening the business called 911 about a burglary to the company.
Upon arrival, officers were informed that someone had thrown an object through the window and gained entry. The employee fired up the video surveillance system for the responding officers, and they watched as a shirtless white male entered the business through the newly installed broken window. The suspect, later identified as Daniel Boone, walked through the business and rummaged through drawers, cabinets, and a company vehicle.
While investigating the burglary at Tire Mart, officers were informed of a burglary in progress at a couple of businesses down the street at Zaxby’s Chicken restaurant.
An employee arrived to open up the store and discovered the north entry door open. The employee entered the business, returned to the kitchen, and found a shirtless Daniel Boone enjoying chicken for breakfast.
