Two are caught with load of loot

Published February 20, 2007


SEMINOLE - They roamed the well-to-do Seminole Lake Country Club Estates for six hours.

From 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. Monday, they searched car after car, and found 15 of them unlocked.

They made off with scores of cell phones, laptop computers and a speaker system.

Just after sunrise, a Florida Highway Patrol trooper pulled over their white Mercedes-Benz.

Inside was nearly $10,000 worth of stolen electronics.

Adam Bocanegra, 20, of Seminole, and Salvatore L. Barese Jr., 18, of St. Petersburg were charged with two counts of burglary to an automobile.

They also swiped merchandise from one Seminole residence, authorities said.

The Sheriff's Office's advice: "Keep your doors locked," said spokeswoman Cecilia Barreda.
