Woman pleads no contest in theft from Pasco RV as man lay dead inside

New Port Richey

Woman files no contest plea in RV theft case

Shana Boyarsky made a handshake deal with a man she met at a yard sale. Kent Bove said he'd pay her $10 an hour to help him move into a new place. But after Boyarsky worked 23 hours helping Bove get into an RV in Holiday last November, she was unable to reach him. Frustrated, she drove to his home, let herself in and found him dead. Authorities said Boyarsky called 911, but only after cleaning out Bove's RV of about $2,750 worth of his belongings: his computer, a black leather jacket, a box of CDs, a Nintendo GameCube and a box with two glass crack pipes inside, according to arrest reports. Boyarsky, 41, of Palm Harbor, was charged with grand theft. Last week, she pleaded no contest to the charge and was sentenced to 18 months' probation. Investigators said she was not suspected of foul play in Bove's death, which was ruled a suicide.


Thieves hit Target stores for perfume

A pair of "perfume bandits" have hit two Target stores three times this month, stealing more than $4,500 in cologne, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said. The thefts happened from June 11 to June 18, once at the Trinity Target and twice at the Target in Lutz. Security camera footage shows two men entering the stores separately, filling up a shopping cart with dozens of boxes of perfume, then walking out of the store without paying. The men have been seen leaving in a dark green small sedan, possibly a late model Honda. Deputies have posted security camera footage online from the Trinity Target robbery with the hope that someone will recognize the suspects.
