HUDSON - Two men were arrested Sunday on charges of armed burglary after a witness called authorities and said one of them threw a purse out of a car window about 5 a.m., the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said.

Brandon A. Desjardins, 18, of 7407 Como Drive in New Port Richey and Robert A. Romano, 19, of 13226 Litewood Drive in Hudson allegedly broke into homes on Sea Pines and Marina drives. The car they were stopped in contained various items taken from the homes, a deputy's report said, including a handgun, bowling equipment, $200 and cell phones.

Desjardins was being held Monday in county jail in lieu of $220,000 bail; Romano was being held in lieu of $222,000.
