BROOKSVILLE — Brooksville police have arrested a man in connection with recent burglaries and thefts of city vehicles at Tom Varn Park and the Quarry Golf Course.
Richard Allen Canterbury III, 25, of Brooksville admitted last week to breaking into the city parks and recreation office at 306 Darby Lane and the nearby concession stand and press box July 23, police said Tuesday. Canterbury stole miscellaneous items, including a John Deere Gator all-terrain vehicle, which was later recovered.
The next day, police said, Canterbury broke into the cart barn at the Quarry, 800 John Gary Grubbs Blvd., and stole two 2008 Yamaha golf carts and two cart battery chargers. Detectives found Canterbury's fingerprints at that scene. Those items have not been recovered.
Canterbury was arrested Thursday and charged with burglary, attempted burglary and grand theft. He was being held Tuesday at the Hernando County Detention Center in lieu of $13,000 bail.
Records show Canterbury was convicted of burglary and theft in Hernando County earlier this year.
