Martin County Sheriff's Office detectives say a “be on the lookout” call for a vehicle used in a residential burglary in Fort Pierce led them to find stolen property and a suspect in Jensen Beach.

Law enforcement went to the home they believed Juan Mateo, 34, to be staying at and found him in possession of drug paraphernalia, according to an arrest report.

Inside the home on the 1300 block of NE Martin Ave, MCSO’s Narcotics, Warrants, and Tactical Surveillance Team reported finding property stolen during the Fort Pierce burglary. 

Deputies arrested Mateo, who is known to live in Port St. Lucie, and he is being held at the Martin County Jail on $750 bond.
