WESLEY CHAPEL - Two teens were arrested and charged with vehicle burglary after 10 cars in a Wesley Chapel neighborhood were broken into early Wednesday morning. The Pasco County Sheriff's Office thinks the teens might be responsible for 35 other recent car burglaries.
A witness said the pair rummaged through several unlocked cars in Meadow Pointe I about 4 a.m. Wednesday.
When questioned at 4:30 a.m., Tyler Mark Humphrey, 19, and Ryan Oscar Disgdiertt, 18, denied knowing anything about the incidents, but deputies discovered they had several items that didn't belong to them, said Doug Tobin, spokesman for the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.
The officers arrested them and the men were being held at the Land O'Lakes jail.
According to Sheriff's Office reports, the teens entered unlocked cars and took a variety of items, including debit cards, checkbooks, cameras, cell phones and MP3 players.
When officers stopped them, they were carrying some of these items, Tobin said.
The Sheriff's Office thinks the teens may have been involved in about 35 other car burglaries since mid May.
But Tobin said they couldn't be certain until the investigation has concluded, and it's expected to last several weeks.
There was also a rash of car burglaries in April. While Tobin said the teens probably weren't responsible for those, he said it should serve as a reminder to residents that they need to lock their vehicles and homes.
"Burglaries are really a crime of opportunity, " he said. "Locking your doors is the best way to prevent yourself from being a victim."
Tobin also said people should move valuable items they keep in their car out of plain view.
