BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Another recently released felon is back in jail due to the outstanding work of Brevard County Sheriff’s Deputy Kyle Pemberton and members of our North Precinct General Crimes Unit.

According to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, Wilford McCloud, 38, of Titusville, was arrested by North Precinct Deputy Kyle Pemberton after he observed an individual later identified as McCloud riding his bicycle in Port St. John during the early morning hours.

“Deputy Pemberton recognized McCloud as fitting the description of an individual suspected for numerous vehicle burglaries in the Port St. John area,” said Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey.

“The suspect was committing the burglaries by riding a bicycle up into the victim’s driveways and checking the vehicle and residence door handles for unlocked doors.”

Sheriff Ivey said that the suspect would additionally attempt to defeat any residential video surveillance cameras from the houses if they were observed.

“McCloud realized that Deputy Pemberton was approaching, so he fled on foot into a wooded area, but was quickly located and apprehended. North Precinct General Crimes Agents who were investigating the vehicle burglaries in the area were able to link McCloud to four different burglaries through video surveillance and other evidence that was recovered at the burglary scenes,” said Sheriff Ivey.

McCloud was charged with Armed Burglary, Grand Theft of a Firearm, Grand Theft, Occupied Residential Burglary, Felony Violation of Probation and Criminal Mischief, and was transported to the Brevard County Jail under a no-bond status.
