Deputies: Suspects talked crime in cop car

EAST NAPLES, Fla., Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said two men who claimed not to know anything about a burglary were recorded discussing the crime in the back of a patrol car.

The Collier County Sheriff's Office said an East Naples man called 911 early Monday to report seeing two men and a woman at the home of neighbors he knew to be out of town, the Naples Daily News reported Wednesday.

Deputies said they pulled over a blue Saturn with a license plate matching the number the man had given them a short time after the call.

The woman driving the car said her friend and passenger, Vernon Jones, 21, had her pick up a man she didn't know, identified as Jacques Saintil, 19, and take them to the house, where they went inside and came back out with an Apple iMac computer and a black bag.

Jones refused to cooperate with deputies and Saintil told deputies he was just a passenger during the incident and did not know a burglary had taken place.

However, deputies said the patrol car's camera recorded the two men discussing the burglary and passing marijuana back and forth.

The men were each charged with burglary, grand theft and marijuana possession.
