Plan to Burglarize Home While Moving Out Foiled – Three Charged
SPRING HILL – A viewer tip led RNRF to a residence on Bradford Street yesterday, where neighbors say several deputies were investigating an unknown situation at a home that is frequented by law enforcement.
According to officials, deputies were called to 10471 Bradford Street, after 31-year-old Jill Marie Robinson reported that several items were stolen from her garage.
Upon arrival, deputies spoke with Robinson, who said she asked 51-year-old Wilfredo Pereira to help her move some items from the home. Pereira agreed but asked if he could have a pair of doors as payment. Robinson said yes and left to pick up breakfast for her friends. When she returned, she says Pereira was gone and so were several other items that belonged to other occupants of the home. Brothers Robert and Brandon Bromson noticed that several items were stolen out of Robert’s Camero that was parked in the driveway. Robinson told the bothers that said had called Pereira and told him if he brought the items back, no charges would be filed.
Investigators interviewed Pereira upon his return, where he admitted to taking the items, but said Robinson gave him permission. He went on to say that he knew many of the items did not belong to Robinson, but he was going to get paid for helping her move.
As the investigation continued, a witness called the Sheriff’s office claiming that Pereira had dropped off several items at his home. The witness, Bruce Brady says Pereira returned to his home a short time later, acting frantic, and picked up some of the items; however, he left some of the stolen items behind.
At the conclusion of the investigation, Pereira and Robinson were taken into custody. A third suspect, 36-year-old Joshua Paul Beard was arrested at the scene for driving on a suspended license.
After he was cuffed, Pereira was placed in the back of a patrol car alongside Paul Beard. Moments later, Pereira yelled at Beard, stating that all of this was his fault. He then kicked Beard in the left arm and told him he was going to kill him. As a result, Pereira was pulled from the backseat and placed into separate patrol car for transport to the jail.
Pereira is charged with Burglary, Grand Larceny, and Battery. He is currently held without bond due to several open cases out of Pasco and Hernando County.
Robinson is charged with Fraud-False Statement, Dealing in Stolen Property, and Grand Larceny. Her bond is set at $3,000.
