Deputies call it a break-in, defendant calls it open house

Man found in home is charged with burglary

A neighbor saw a man walk around the back of the empty home on Bluebird Drive about 11:15 a.m. Monday. A few minutes later, he heard the sound of breaking glass.

The neighbor called deputies, who found Michael Eugene Webster, who had entered the home by smashing two windows in the back, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. Deputies noted that Webster, 40, had superficial wounds on his arms from the broken glass.

Webster "stated he was interested in buying the house, which is the reason for entering," the report said.

Webster, of 6335 Halifax Drive in New Port Richey, was charged with residential burglary. He was released from the Land O'Lakes jail on $10,000 bail.
