Two men accused of stealing drug money

PORT RICHEY

2 men accused of stealing drug money

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 Friday; Wyatt was released after posting $2,000 bail.
