Osceola County, Florida – On September 29 at approximately 7:01 p.m., Osceola County Sheriff’s deputies responded to 226 Pawnee Trail in Kissimmee. Upon arrival, they spoke with the homeowner who indicated she observed an unknown male, later identified as Douglas Williams, inside her residence. He told her he thought her home was for sale. When she stated it was not, he quickly left the residence and drove away in a black pick up truck. Deputies responding to the area were able to locate Williams a short distance away. They conducted a traffic stop and took Williams into custody. He cooperated with the investigation and told deputies he was looking for a former friend he knew from out-of-state that he heard lived on Pawnee Trail. When asked why he entered an unknown residence, Williams replied, “what do you think.”

A canvass of the area revealed Williams had been in the area acting suspicious. A neighbor observed him on their private property and when confronted, he asked if the home was for sale. Based on the statements and evidence, Williams was arrested for Occupied Burglary and Trespassing. He was booked into the Osceola County Jail.
