The incident prompted three Lakeland schools to enter lockout mode.

According to police, Rivera first attempted to enter the Pine Court home through a rear sliding door. When unsuccessful, he attempted to pry a lower rear door open using a shovel that was left outside by the homeowner. The homeowner then confronted Rivera, who fled the scene.

“He attempted to enter a residence unaware that the homeowner was home,” said Police Chief Robert Noble. He said Rivera made no threats and did not display a weapon.

In addition to the attempted Pine Court burglary, Rivera is also accused of attempting to break into another Shrub Oak home as well as theft of property from a parked car.

Rivera was charged with two counts of attempted burglary, a D felony; and fourth-degree grand larceny, an E felony.
