Two teens accused of using stolen truck to steal 19 guns from Zephyrhills armory
ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. (WGFL) —
Two teens have been arrested in connection with a brazen burglary in which the thieves used a pickup truck to crash through the front door.
Lasupta Singletary, Jr. and Thomas Walter Day, III, both 17, were arrested Wednesday, according to Zephyrhills Police. They're both charged with armed burglary in connection with the theft of 19 guns from the Sunshine State Armory on April 9th.
Police say the thieves used a stolen Toyota Tundra to force their way into the business. The burned truck was found about a mile-and-a-half east of the business about an hour after the crime.
A witness told police the suspects were at a home with a large duffel bag containing guns. Investigators say security video shows one of the defendants wearing the same red sweatshirt during the crime and while putting gas in the truck beforehand.
More arrests are expected in the case.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Zephyrhills Police Department at (813) 780-0050.
