Hand was 17 year-old back in 2016 when he first made local headlines being caught in a Dania Beach home invasion; a 12-year-old boy was home alone inside during the burglary and called police leading to the capture and identification of Hand who, at the time, was charged with burglary of a conveyance, armed robbery, grand theft of a firearm and armed robbery with a firearm.
