Hernando teen accused of stealing school computers

Arrest made in theft of equipment at Nature Coast technical High School

BROOKSVILLE — A Spring Hill 18-year-old has been arrested on charges of stealing computer equipment from Nature Coast Technical High School.

The Hernando County Sheriff's Office gives this report: On Jan. 23, a Saturday, David Oquinn waited in the school's parking lot for students returning from a basketball game to leave. Then he drove to the rear of the school and backed up near the entrance to the Commercial Arts Lab.

Oquinn used a hammer to break glass from the door, then entered the classroom and took computers and other equipment. He returned to the school the next day and took more items. At least one computer was given to another person; another was traded.

After receiving a tip Monday, investigators say they found the stolen property at Oquinn's home at 5322 Harbinger Road. One of the stolen computers was seen on a table from the front door. Other items were found in the converted garage of the home.

Oquinn admitted that he stole the items, the report states. He was arrested on two counts of burglary of a structure and a single count of dealing in stolen property.
