Deputies: Teens hurled pavers through car windows

Two suspects jailed in smashing of windows

NEW PORT RICHEY — Two 18-year-olds caused thousands of dollars in damage early Tuesday when they heaved landscaping paving stones into the windows of five cars, one living room window and one bedroom window in the Colonial Hills and Stony Point neighborhoods, authorities said.

The duo also smashed a mailbox on Moog Road, reports said.

The crimes happened between about 4:50 and 6:40 a.m. The two suspects arrested are David M. Ambrosio of 8111 Woodleaf Blvd. in Wesley Chapel and Keith F. Osborn of 2318 Woodbend Circle in New Port Richey.

Both teens blamed the crimes on each other and said, "We were just being stupid," according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

"I don't know why we did it," Ambrosio said, according to reports.

The teens are each charged with eight counts of criminal mischief.

Each remained in the Pasco County jail Wednesday in lieu of $1,200 bail.
