Carpenter accused of burglarizing 11 Pasco homes


Deputies: man showed homes he burglarized

A 21-year-old carpenter is accused of breaking into 11 homes and stealing more than $60,000 worth of goods, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Tyler M. Humphrey — who spent two months in prison last year for burglary and theft — was arrested Tuesday and, according to a report, rode around Wesley Chapel and Land O'Lakes with a detective, pointing out homes he burglarized in September. The break-ins happened during the day and were in Seven Oaks, Quail Hollow, Stagecoach Village, Plantation Palms and Twin Lakes. Authorities say Humphrey gained entry to the homes by breaking sliding glass door locks. Most of the items reported stolen were TVs, computers, cameras, cash and jewelry. Humphrey, who lives at 7541 Conrad St. in Wesley Chapel, faces several charges of burglary and grand theft. He remained Thursday at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $81,250 bail.
