Joel Hooten of Coral Springs, Florida surrendered himself to authorities earlier this week for his alleged involvement in a courthouse break-in. Hooten was charged with burglary and is being held in lieu of $15,000 bond. News reports did not specify a lawyer for Hooten.
Hooten, 35, turned himself in after Broward Sheriff’s Office released surveillance footage of the break-in on Monday. The surveillance video shows a one-handed man who looks like Hooten breaking into a courthouse on 1600 W. Hillsboro Boulevard last Sunday.
