Man caught breaking into Manatee home

MANATEE — Terry Jay Yarger, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office, never had a chance to enjoy the fruits of his illegal behavior.

Yarger, 29, was arrested by deputies at 12:45 p.m. Monday, moments after stepping out of a residence in the 800 block of 50th Avenue Terrace West. Deputies had gone there after a witness called 911 to report seeing someone — the sheriff’s office says it was Yarger — entering the residence through a window.

“Yarger, unaware that deputies were outside of the residence, exited through the front door and was quickly apprehended,” a sheriff’s office news release states. “Property belonging to the victim was discovered on Yarger’s person.”
