Cape Coral teen arrested for stealing from family, and multiple others

LEE COUNTY – A Cape Coral teenager is facing several felony charges after being arrested for breaking into cars and stealing two guns.

Police said Zachary Busenbark, 15, broke into a family member's house on Nov. 9 and stole a revolver.

While officers were responding to that call, reports of car burglaries were being reported at a nearby Hooters restaurant, according to police. A total of four cars were broken into, and one had a 9mm handgun stolen.

Law enforcement surrounded the area around the restaurant and deployed a K9 squad and aviation unit. Shortly after, Busenbark was found hiding in some bushes but took off running. Police eventually caught up to him and arrested him.

He's now facing serious charges including armed burglary, two counts of grand theft of a firearm, petit theft, four counts of vehicle burglary, and resisting a law enforcement officer.

This isn't Busenbark's first run in with the law, either. Less than a month ago he was arrested twice in two days. 

On Oct. 16, he was arrested for stealing change out of a woman's car. The next day, he was arrested again for breaking into people's homes.
