At approximately 10:00 a.m., Monroe County Deputies were dispatched to a storage unit on 5th avenue on stock island in Key West reference a burglary. Upon arrival, they met with the victim who stated that his storage unit had been broken into and several items were missing.

The victim took an inventory of his storage unit and listed a number of stolen items in his victim statement. Stolen were marine parts and accessories, including a Garmin GPS unit, a trim tilt unit for an outboard engine, an air pump, and most importantly, 85 Pounds of shrimp.

Monroe County deputies then looked at surveillance footage from the storage unit and lo & behold; they recognized one of their frequent flyers by the name of Felipe Fonseca from previous encounters. Fonseca lives in the area of stock island, so he was located and arrested shortly after identification.

When I said Fonseca was a frequent flyer, I wasn’t joking. A search of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office corrections website shows Fonseca with 30 arrests prior to this one. Arrests include sale of cocaine, trespassing, multiple theft charges, battery on a law enforcement officer, tampering with evidence, aggravated abuse on the elderly, aggravated assault, and solicitation.

Felipe Fonseca was transported to the Monroe County Jail and was charged with burglary of an unoccupied structure, petit theft in the second degree,  grand theft of more than $750 dollars / less than $5,000, possession of burglary tools with intent to use, and criminal mischief of under $200. He is being held on $20,000 bond, Monroe County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Adam Linhardt said.
