Orange County Sheriffs swarmed an apartment located near UCF Tuesday night in response to a burglary call.

With headlights from a sheriff's car aimed at the apartment, multiple deputies pushed open the door, entered the building at 3510 Khayyam Avenue and came out with a man dressed in all white with his hands held behind his back.

"We had an apartment down here that was bank owned that a couple of gentlemen claimed stake," Lt. Dennis Ela said.

When the property owners came to check on the property, they found the men inside the apartment. Ela said deputies are unsure of how long the men were inside.

Another deputy said that nobody was injured in the incident.

Deputies received a call for service at 5:53 p.m. regarding a burglary at a residence on Khayyam Avenue, which is located adjacent to The Marquee apartments — formerly known as the Sterling Central. Deputies entered the building around 9 p.m.

A K9 unit was on the scene as well.
