PUNTA GORDA (FOX 13) -

A convicted felon already in the Charlotte County Jail for robbery is now facing three counts of burglary.

Daniel Robert Foley II was charged Friday in connection with three break-ins at residences located in the Deep Creek subdivision of Punta Gorda.

According to a Charlotte County Sheriff's Office report Foley, 27, was originally arrested on June 26 after he allegedly stole a woman's cell phone. In that case he was also charged with grand theft, drug possession and resisting arrest.

Investigators say two days before the arrest a woman found Foley on the lanai of her home when she woke up from a nap. When she asked him what he was doing Foley claimed to be looking for a yard work job.

Foley left and a short time later the woman saw him running from house to house in the rain.

On June 30th a family living in the same neighborhood returned from vacation to discover their home had been burglarized. Approximately $7,500 worth of property had been stolen.

Detectives met with a Richard A. Smith, a yard maintenance man who works in the neighborhood. He was in the Charlotte County Jail at the time. He informed investigators that he had picked up Foley near the burglarized residence a few days prior.

Smith told them Foley had left several possessions at his parents' home around the time of the crimes. Detectives determined that some of the items had been stolen from the vacationing family.

Foley is no stranger to law enforcement in Charlotte County. In the past few years he's been arrested 13 times on a total of 30 charges.

He is currently being held without bond and additional charges are expected.

If you have any information about Foley's activities in the Deep Creek area, please contact the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office at 941-639-2101.
