Man arrested after burglary at Munchees


Man arrested after burglary at Munchees

Trevor David Winsett, 24, of 402 N Carolina Ave. in Palm Harbor, was arrested late Thursday in connection with a burglary and two robberies at a Munchees convenience store at 2100 Bayshore Blvd. in Dunedin, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. Approximately 100 scratch-off Florida Lottery tickets were stolen from the store during a smash-and-grab burglary Jan. 29. Winsett was identified as the suspect, authorities said, after fingerprints on the cashed-in lottery tickets came back to the suspect's brother. The Sheriff's Office said the brother was given the tickets by the suspect for repayment of a debt. Investigators said they were then able to connect Winsett to the two robberies at Munchees on Jan. 17 and Feb. 1 as well. Winsett was charged with one count of burglary, two counts of robbery and one count of dealing in stolen property. He remained in the Pinellas County Jail on Friday with bail set at $75,000.
