Couple charged in string of home burglaries in Holiday, San Antonio

HOLIDAY — The young couple worked together, deputies said, and ransacked seven homes in three days.

Between Sept. 4 and Sept. 6, deputies said, the duo hit several homes in Holiday and one in San Antonio, all in the same fashion.

Their strategy: Christie Marie Carr, 18, would knock on doors to make sure the houses were empty, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report states. Then, Carr and her boyfriend, Anthony Richard Seeno, 21, would pry open or smash a back window and grab the loot, the report states.

They made off with a laptop, a Kindle reader, a Blackberry phone, a GPS, rings and other jewelry, reports state. Carr took perfume. All together, the stolen items were worth more than $4,100.

Later, reports say, Seeno pawned the items at Jewels-N-Time, Holiday Cash N Go and Golden Nugget Pawn.

Detectives found fingerprints at one of the houses and were able to trace them to the other robberies, said sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll.

The stolen goods were also found at the pawn shops.

Seeno and Carr were arrested Thursday and taken to Land O'Lakes jail. Seeno was charged with six counts of burglary and three counts of dealing in stolen property. He remained in jail Friday in lieu of $70,000 bail. Carr, charged with one count of burglary, has been released.

Reports state Seeno confessed to the burglaries after he was caught, saying he used the money from the pawn shops to support his prescription pain pill addiction.

Reports say Seeno didn't appear surprised about being caught.

"My name was all over this," he said.
