Three teen boys still sought after escape
By TIMES STAFF
Published August 7, 2007
Pasco deputies are searching for three teenagers who escaped Saturday from a holding facility, according to a report from the Sheriff's Office. In all, five boys, ranging in age from 13 to 16, escaped from the San Antonio Boys Village about 8:30 p.m. by running out of an emergency exit, jumping a cattle gate and darting into an open field, the report said. Two of the boys have been captured: A 15-year-old boy was caught shortly after the escape by the facility's staff and the sheriff's canine unit, and a 13-year-old boy was arrested Monday at a Burger King, authorities said. The Times is withholding the names of all of the boys because of their ages. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the other three teens can call the Sheriff's Office tips line toll-free at 1-800-706-2488.
Sysco Food would also get tax break
In case $5-million in incentives isn't enough, Pasco County and Zephyrhills have offered one more sweetener to land 257 jobs with Sysco Food Service. A deal to be approved today by the County Commission also would reimburse half of the company's added property taxes if it expands beyond the initial construction by at least 30,000 square feet, the proposed deal says. Sysco chose the 62-acre site north of the Zephyrhills Municipal Airport for a 393,000-square-foot distribution center. The project is contingent on county and city officials approving the incentive package.
