Dade City man facing five felony charges


Man, 19, facing five felony charges

It's been a rough week for 19-year-old Robert Anthony Silva.

On Friday, the Dade City Police Department arrested Silva on charges he broke into a home at 36050 White Fir Way on June 11.

In addition to stealing numerous electronic items, including a laptop computer and cameras, a burglar also stole the victim's car, a 2002 Chrysler Concord. When a Pasco sheriff's deputy tried to stop that car last week, the driver crashed and ran away.

Silva was arrested earlier in the week by Zephyrhills Police Department on an unrelated charge of armed robbery. Silva was interviewed by detectives at the Pasco County Detention Center and was also implicated in a Dade City burglary on June 7.

Silva was charged with five felony offenses and booked at the Land O'Lakes jail, where he was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Woman is accused of prescription fraud

Dade City police arrested a 32-year-old woman on two charges of prescription fraud Thursday.

Police say Alyce Nicole Heath was arrested at the RX Pharmacy, 14306 Seventh St., after she attempted to pick up a prescription for Xanax in the name of someone who died in February.

An anonymous caller tipped off the pharmacist to the scheme, who in turn called police.

Heath was charged with two felony offenses of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and booked in the Land O'Lakes jail, where she is being held in lieu of $3,000 bail.
