Hillsborough deputies arrest five after burglary investigation

TAMPA — An investigation into thefts from a car wash quickly grew into the discovery of a burglary ring and five arrests, authorities said Monday.

Over the weekend, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, investigators determined that James C. Marston, 32, of Tampa was involved in burglarizing the coin machines at Tampa Car Splash, 5807 Memorial Highway.

Deputies conducted a traffic stop and took Marston and another person in the car, Stacey Sacco, 26, of Tampa, into custody.

During questioning, the Sheriff's Office said, Marston and Sacco admitted committing burglaries throughout western Hillsborough. They told detectives they took the stolen items to a man and woman in a subdivision west of Town 'N Country.

Based on the pair's information, detectives got a warrant and conducted a search at 10101 Royal Acres Court. They found four television sets, a DVD player, some landscaping tools, cash, pills and residue of crack cocaine and marijuana, among other items, the Sheriff's Office said.

The Sheriff's Office said five people were arrested as a result of the investigation:

Marston, of 8314 June St., faces four counts of burglary of an unoccupied dwelling; four counts of grand theft; obstructing or opposing an officer without violence; and obstruction by a disguised person.

Sacco, of 7101 W Creek Drive, faces charges of burglary of an occupied dwelling; burglary of an unoccupied dwelling; and two counts of grand theft.

Alan M. Wingereid, 54, of 10101 Royal Acres Court, faces eight counts of dealing in stolen property.

Michael Spaide, 48, of 10101 Royal Acres Court, faces a possession of marijuana charge.

Sherrie Levy, 43, 10101 Royal Acres Court, faces four counts of possession of a controlled substance; 24 counts of possession of drug paraphernalia; and eight counts of dealing in stolen property.
