PINECREST, Fla. – Two burglary suspects were arrested after a UPS driver saw them jumping over a fence in a Pinecrest yard Tuesday, police said.

Jeremiah Davis, 19, and Markeith Nickels, 21, face charges of burglary to an unoccupied dwelling and criminal mischief.

Pinecrest police said a UPS driver alerted authorities after spotting two men jumping over a fence in the 6300 block of Southwest 92nd Street.

Officers stopped two men on bicycles who matched the description leaving a property a block away. They later determined that a brick had been used to smash a glass door to the home, but the suspects were unable to get inside.

Police said Davis was wanted by South Miami police in connection with dozens of vehicle burglaries.
