Third teen arrested in River Ridge school break-in


Third teen is arrested in school break-in

The final suspect in the March 14 break-in at River Ridge high and middle schools has been arrested. According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, he is 17 and a junior at River Ridge High School in New Port Richey. The Times is withholding his name because of his age. Many items were stolen during the burglary, including computers, cameras and cell phones. Most have been recovered. The other two suspects — also 17-year-old juniors at River Ridge — were arrested Tuesday. The third teenager, who lives in Land O'Lakes, is in juvenile custody and is charged with armed burglary, wearing a mask while committing an offense and trespassing on school property with a weapon.

  1. South Florida poaches debris pickup trucks once slotted for Tampa, officials say


    TAMPA — A week into the job of picking up an estimated 300,000 cubic yards of Hurricane Irma debris from its streets, Tampa City Hall is finding to its dismay that the challenge is more competitive than expected.

    A city of Tampa truck loaded with debris from Hurricane Irma pulls into a temporary storage yard on N Rome Avenue Friday morning. There, workers from Tetra Tech, the city's debris monitoring contractor, photograph and check the load from an elevated platform to create a record that the city can use later to seek reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

    TAMPA — It's a blink-and-you-miss-it nuance, but in Sunday's opener against Chicago, on their very first defensive snap, the Bucs lined up in a 3-4 defense.

  5. Along the Alafia River, the grateful extend a hand to the Irma-sodden weary (w/video)


    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]
