Deputies: Teen treats self to robbery, meal
An 18-year-old Brooksville man is accused of breaking into a home, cooking himself some burgers and eggs and using the owners' phone and computer, all while armed with a German Army gun he found in the home. Jacob Comeau of Country Club Drive told deputies he found a key to the house on Brookridge Boulevard in a shed on Monday, a report states, and that he went in and took some money before making himself a meal. He then left with the Mauser 7mm gun, locking the door behind him. Deputies recovered the gun but Comeau had spent the money. He was arrested Wednesday on a charge of armed burglary and was held on a $20,000 bond.
