Deputy Captures Thieves Who Allegedly Stole A/C Unit from Vacant Residence, Vigilant Neighbor Called 911
SPRING HILL – Thanks to a vigilant neighbor, Sheriff’s Deputies were able to catch two would-be thieves who stole an air conditioning unit from a residence on Wellington Road.
According to sources, neighbors witnessed two men disconnecting an A/C unit from 5167 Wellington Road, load it into the back of a pickup truck and drive away. But the burglars didn’t get more than two blocks away before a Sheriff’s Deputy spotted the truck on Landover Blvd and conducted a felony traffic stop.
The suspects were held at gunpoint until backup arrived on scene, where both were taken into custody without incident.
The A/C unit and possibly a pool pump was located inside the bed of the pickup truck.
We will bring more on this story once both suspects have been booked into the Hernando County Jail.
