Arrest made in burglary at Price-Longoria spring home
The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office made the first of several expected arrests in the burglary of the spring home shared by LHP David Price, 3B Evan Longoria and SS Reid Brignac.
And they didn't to go far to do it, as Steven Charles Vaughn, a 22-year-old Port Charlotte man, was already in the Charlotte County Jail on unrelated burglary and theft charges. Vaughn was charged with armed burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, grand theft and dealing in stolen property.
The players did not get back any of the items stolen in the March 26 break-in, which included electronics, a fancy watch owned by Price and an AK-47 rife that was registered to Longoria. The players were at a spring game at the time.
"Obviously something had to happen and they got the guy,'' Price said. "So I guess justice prevailed.''
"We're obviously happy that there was an arrest made but as far as making other comments I think we're going to keep that between us,'' Longoria said. "None of the stuff was returned. But closure is closure, and we're happy about that.''
According to the sheriff's office, this is Vaughn's 10th booking into the Charlotte County Jail with 52 records. He has been in the jail since April 21 and is being held without bond. Detectives said the investigation is ongoing and active and no other details are being released at this time.
