Officials: Pasco men stole money from undercover drug agent

PORT RICHEY

Officials: Two Men took money meant for drug sting

Authorities say two New Port Richey men made a deal with an undercover Drug Enforcement Administration agent to obtain prescription pills for cash, but then stole the cash.

According to Sheriff's Office reports, Jeremy White, 28, of 8549 Broad St., met the agent at the Wal-Mart at 8701 U.S. 19 at 2 p.m. Thursday. He took $600 cash, the reports say, and was supposed to pick up a prescription from the pharmacy and give the agent the pills. Instead, he walked into the store and right back out, and fled in a car driven by 21-year-old Andrew Wyatt, also of 8549 Broad St.

The reports say Wyatt was found at home with $300 in his pocket. White was caught later. Both admitted to the crime, the reports say. They were each charged with grand theft.

White remained in the Pasco County jail on Friday; Wyatt was released after posting $2,000 bail.

Obscene picture leads to man's arrest

An 18-year-old man borrowed a child's cell phone, took a picture of his penis and sent the picture to the child's mother, police say.

Anthony Lamar James Jr. did this Thursday afternoon at the Hugh Embry library downtown, according to his arrest report. The mother, who was not identified, was offended and concerned for her child's safety.

Police confronted James at the library, the report says, and he tried to run away. When they caught up to him, he said he didn't mean to send the picture to the mother.

James, of 37802 Whitehouse Ave., was arrested and charged with prohibition of obscene acts and resisting arrest without violence, both misdemeanors. Bail was set at $300.

    LITHIA — The things that make a house a home dried in the afternoon sun Thursday in a front yard on Williams Street.

    Volunteers from FishHawk Fellowship Church helped Brian Hood (left) clean up debris from his yard in Valrico, Fla. Last week the Alafia River reached a depth of almost 23 feet, about 10 feet above its flood stage. Many homes were damaged, some became uninhabitable. Hood's home is 6 inches above Lithia Pinecrest Road, and did not sustain flood damage, though not all of his neighbors were as lucky.   [MONICA HERNDON   |   Times]
