Alleged Jimmy John's Serial Burglar Had Hats From Restaurant: BSO

An alleged serial burglar accused of breaking into at least 10 different South Florida Jimmy John's sandwich shops was caught red-handed with hats from the restaurants in his car, authorities said.

Devon Golding, 18, and a juvenile were arrested on multiple burglary charges after they confessed to 10 separate burglaries, Broward Sheriff's Office officials said.

Golding was booked into the Broward jail Sunday. It's unknown if he's hired an attorney.

Authorities said a deputy was on routine patrol when he spotted a white Mercedes in the 2400 block of West Commercial Boulevard. The vehicle had been in a flyer about the burglaries at Jimmy John's locations in Broward and Palm Beach counties.

The deputy decided to stop the car after noticing it had an unassigned tag. When the deputy searched the car, he found $320 in small bills and wrapped coins, gloves, a flashlight and Jimmy John's hats, authorities said.

Detectives from Coral Springs, Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale have added multiple charges for similar crimes, authorities said.
