Man Broke Into Molino Home, Ate Two Lunchables And Took A Shower, ECSO Says

January 24, 2023

A Molino woman returned to her home to find a man inside that ate two Lunchables out of the refrigerator and took a shower, according to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

Edward Charles Boyett, 44, was booked into the Escambia County Jail on  charges of burglary of an unoccupied dwelling unarmed and petit theft.

A woman that lives on North Highway 95A near Highland Baptist Church and walked to her son’s house nearby. She returned home to find someone in her house.

She told her son, who returned with a firearm to his mom’s home to find the doors locked. He said he could see someone inside taking a shower, according to an arrest report. He fired several shots in an attempt to scare the intruder out.

An Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputy arrived to find the son outside the home with a firearm, talking to Boyett through a bathroom window. Deputies commanded Boyett to exit the home and arrested him at gunpoint.

The victim told deputies that several items were disturbed. Two Lunchables, valued at $5 each, had been removed from the refrigerator and eaten before the packages were thrown in the trash. The victim said her purse has been gone through, and a vehicle key was removed and placed on the kitchen counter.

Deputies found several of Boyett’s belongings in the home, including a backpack with clothing and miscellaneous items on the kitchen table. Boyett’s bicycle was located on the north side of the residence.

Boyett remained in the Escambia County Jail Tuesday with bond set at $10,500.

    @Denise Wiggins
    I agree. I’m only repeating what I was told by 3 Escambia County Officers in 2018.

    @Sheila Grim It may be too late by the time you figure out if an intruder has a weapon. I’ll take my chances with a jury trial if I am ACTUALLY arrested. “Better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.”

    If you read my comment I said that is what I was told by the police! I never said I was 100% correct. Someone tried breaking in on me several years ago. I pulled a gun and was told by 3 officers that showed up that if they would have come in my house and I shot them I would have been arrested unless they had a deadly weapon on them. Not justifying what Edward done. Just making a statement based on what I have been told.

    Anyone has the right to protect their home or their mothers home. Her son was 100% justified in his actions. if someone breaks into your home then you absolutely have a right to protect yourself and or your family by whatever means that may be. Had the son shot Mr. Boyette it would have resulted in the same outcome.
    Mr. Boyette is fully aware of the possibilities and risk involved for breaking into a persons house and doing as he did especially at his age. He knew what kind of danger he was putting himself in but chose to do it anyways. weather he went into that house armed or not makes no difference in the way the homeowner protects their family and themselves.
    I myself don’t believe to many people are going to take time to wait and see if the intruder is armed or unarmed before taking action, nor should they.
    You might know Mr Boyette to be a harmless person but the homeowner clearly doesn’t know Mr Boyette nor he know them. Imagine that being your mother’s home would you still feel the same way? I highly doubt it.

    If you break in a persons home for any reason that is the risk you are taking. Mr Boyette should consider himself very lucky. hopefully it will make him think twice about doing it again. next time he might not be so lucky.

    Not trying to be mean or negative but Kyle Broflivski I’m pretty sure you think he is someone else.

    I am praying for this man. All he wanted was a shower and a meal. God loves us all.

    He is from Cantonment Florida. Also he didn’t have any weapons so therefore it is a good thing he wasn’t shot by neighbors or the residents. Jail cells are open to everyone that commits crimes and shooting someone that doesn’t have a weapon on them is a crime. As far as I have been told by police anyways.

    This fella had a promising future but we see how that went…you get what you deserve sometime. He best be glad the son of the woman took pity and tried to scare him instead. Lock him up and throw away the key THIS TIME

    Hoping you can turn it around brother. It seems like yesterday that you, me, Stan and Kenny (sometimes Eric) were hanging out. We had all sorts at adventures. From solving social and political issues of the day, to having nachos at Casa Bonita. And, who can forget the ski resort adventure that we had when our parents were looking at time shares. Back then, we called you by another name. That bright eyed, optimistic young man is still in there.
    We all make mistakes. So, there is no judgement. Just remember the lessons we learned from Mr. Garrison, Mr. Mackey and all the others.
    Keep dancing your dance, brother. But, only if you want to. However, some so-called friends should be left behind. Their lack of dancing means that they are, simply, no friends of mine.
    Whenever you’re back in SP, look me up. You have a warm bed and plenty of snacks waiting on you.

    The Lunchable Bandit strikes again!

    Poor lady. Glad her son is close by. Good job, sir!!

    @SW; Yes, I think that dude was from Michigan. Seems like a long way to travel for a shower and some snacks.

  13. SW on January 24th, 2023 8:17 am

    Didn’t a similar incident happen just recently?

  14. Kyle Broflovski on January 24th, 2023 7:10 am

    Butters. It seems like yesterday that you, me, Stan and Kenny were simultaneously figuring out the worlds problems, while assessing Cartman as friend or foe. We used to take on the worlds toughest issues. Politics, war, homelessness or just smug Prius owners…we’ve seen it all. I miss the days at Casa Bonita. I miss the ski resort, where our parents were looking at time shares.
    Stay well, Butters. And remember…”You can dance if you want to, but leave your friends behind. ‘Cause your friends don’t dance. And, if they don’t dance, they’re no friends of mine.
