They say mom knows best. That is especially true when she recognizes her son’s face in connection with a burglary.
That’s how Clearwater police said they ended up arresting 18-year-old Kevin King.
His mother recognized her son as the burglary suspect police were looking for in an image the agency shared on social media.
She arranged to have him turn himself in for his alleged role in the April 25 burglary in the 3200 block of San Mateo Street.
In that incident, police said the video doorbell captured King ringing at the residence.
When no one answered, police said King and two others went to the back of the house and went inside through a sliding glass door.
They stole $5,000 worth of stuff, police said.
King, of Riverview, faces a charges of burglary and grand theft. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail at 3:25 a.m. Thursday and held there in lieu of $12,000 bail.
Detectives are still searching for the other two suspects.
