    Two men charged in home robbery

    CLEARWATER -- Two men have been arrested in connection with a home-invasion robbery on Sunday. Jason Douglas Naumann, 23, of 2389 Beacon Groves Blvd., Palm Harbor, was charged with robbery, burglary-aggravated battery and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Thomas George Cutchall, 21, of 1398 Shady Pine Way, Tarpon Springs, was charged with principal to robbery in the first degree and burglary-battery, according to arrest affidavits.

    Clearwater police reported the robbery occurred about 4:30 a.m. Sunday when a man broke down the front door of a residence on N Cirrus Avenue, pointed a gun at an occupant and demanded that the person open a safe and give up cash. The assailant threatened to kill the occupant if he didn't comply, hit him with the gun and caused face and head injuries, police reported.

    Naumann was arrested about three hours later at his residence, where police reported finding more than 500 grams of marijuana. Cutchall, who police say assisted in the robbery, also was arrested then, police reported.

    Police revisit scene of February shooting

    LARGO -- Detectives last week went back to the High Point neighborhood where a man was ambushed and shot to death in February.

    Marco Waters, 23, was shot and killed by two masked robbers on Feb. 26 as he sat with his girlfriend outside her duplex in the 5400 block of Colfax Street. The robbers stole a tax return of several thousand dollars that Waters had recently received, detectives said.

    Last week, Pinellas sheriff's detectives and community policing officers recanvassed the neighborhood and handed out fliers seeking information on the shooting, the first unsolved homicide the sheriff's office has had in three years.

    Anyone with information on Waters' death can call Detective Rob Snipes at 582-6344.
