STUART - Two men from Broward County are under arrest after investigators said they admitted to multiple burglaries in Stuart.

Jean Gary Bien-Aine, 19, of 5315 Northwest 24th Court, Lauderhill, was charged with residential burglary, attempted residential burglary and grand theft.

Deputies said he was one of three men who went on a burglary spree through homes near Phillip Bend Drive.

Also arrested was Marquis-Lavon Harvard, 22, of 5420 Northwest 19th St., Lauderhill. He was charged with burglary of a residence, attempted burglary of a residence, grand theft, fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer and being a habitual traffic offender.

A third man, Terrel Evans, was also arrested, after he confessed to burglarizing two homes and smashing the window of a third.

The men attempted to escape arrest, but the rented car they were travelling in crashed during a police pursuit.

They were arrested on Oct. 22 after a resident of Phillip Bend Drive called law enforcement officers to report that two black men had knocked on her door requesting directions to Interstate-95. She provided a description of their vehicle and a tag number. Another caller later reported a third unknown black man in the neighborhood.

After police got a call about a robbery and attempted robbery near that home, they stopped the Ford Mustang the men were driving.

According to the arrest affidavits, Mr. Harvard and Mr. Bien-Aine confessed to breaking and entering two houses, and stealing laptop computers, a coin collection and a container of loose change.
