Florida Man Arrested After Calling 911 To Get Help Moving Stuff And Ride To Airport After Burglarizing Home
A Florida man and his girlfriend were arrested after calling 911 call to get help with moving “their” belongings from a home they were burglarizing and asking for a ride to the airport so they can escape to New York, authorities said.
According to Tampa Bay station Fox-13, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said that officers responded to a home Saturday after a 911 call was made but nobody spoke. At the home, the deputies concluded that nobody lived there, but they found a male suspect and his girlfriend inside the home after entering it through an unlocked door.
Authorities had been searching for the male suspect after identifying him from security video as a burglar at a Dollar General store in Poinciana, Florida, where he stole several items earlier in the day, the sheriff’s office said in a statement, The Associated Press reports.
After being detained, the female suspect told the officers that they had called 911 for the purpose of having law enforcement help them move their belongings from the house they were burglarizing and to get a ride to the airport so they could spend the weekend in New York, the sheriff’s office said, according to the AP.
“Deputies DID help them with their belongings, and DID give them a ride, but it wasn’t to the airport … it was to the Polk Pokey,“ the sheriff’s office said in a statement. “And they are welcome to stay there all weekend long. The Polk Pokey is much better than New York anyway.”
The male suspect identified as Martin Gonzalez-Garcia, 23, was charged with burglary and theft related to the store and also burglary of a residence.
The female suspect, 22-year-old Ashializ Roldan-Oscasio, was charged with burglary of a residence, according to the sheriff’s office.
