Spring Hill Trio Arrested After Posing as Power Company Employees

SPRING HILL – Hernando County residents have seen their share of scams and con artists who prey on unsuspecting victims. Sadly, those victims are most often the elderly who watch as their hard earned money slips into the hands of nefarious reprobates. Many times these criminals get away because they leave no tangible evidence for investigators to follow. But three Spring Hill residents found themselves behind bars Wednesday, after investigators unveiled their elaborate scam to rip-off unwitting homeowners.

According to officials, 36-year-old Allison Anaya, 42-year-old Edwin Anaya, and 25-year-old Tiffany Kennedy, posed as employees of Tampa Electric Company and then threatened to cut off their victim’s power. To avoid the disconnection, the trio would offer residents the option of providing a prepaid debit card as payment.

With the assistance of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, all three were arrested and charged with Grand Theft, Conspiracy to Commit Grand Theft, Organized Fraud, and Money Laundering.

Kennedy posted a $16,000 bond and was released the same day as her arrest. Allison and Edwin remain behind bars, held on $20,000 bond each.

  • The comments on here are just ridiculous. We are all humans, NOONE knows the truth behind this story either only what is written. I know these 3 personally & the 2 are husband an wife and just didnt give a fuck who they hurt so yes they were wrong and the other had no where to live with her infant child & because she was in the home at time of crime, when investigators were looking into the case, & she was charged too guilty by association.

  • So many dirt bags in Hernando County, It’s unreal. The moral is, Don’t believe anyone that calls you on the phone or comes to your door looking for any payment because it’s a SCAM.

  • Are u serious? Why is it so hard for people to work for what they want? Instead they rob people or scam people because they are too lazy. I bet their parents are proud. Watch someone get on here and defend their character and what “good people” they really are. Lol
