ST. PETERSBURG — A man accused of participating in a home invasion turned himself in to authorities on Thursday, police said.

German C. Agosto, 20, of St. Petersburg contacted police after his family saw his image on a surveillance video on the news and urged him to turn himself in, officials said.

Police said that shortly after 4 a.m. Sept. 26, several armed men forced their way into 1780 70th Circle N. They took wallets, purses, cell phones and car keys.

Later, police released video from a Pinellas Park 7-Eleven that shows two males and a female use one of the stolen credit cards to make purchases.

In the video, Agosto is the person in black clothing and a hat turned backward, a police spokesman said.

Agosto faces charges of home invasion robbery and fraudulent use of personal identification information. He is in the Pinellas County jail in lieu of $105,000 bail.

    Buckle up for Baby Driver, a movie so full throttle cool that you want to fist bump the screen. Style is the substance of Edgar Wright's inventive heist flick, a fresh, masterful synching of music and getaway mayhem, as if La La Land's traffic jam was moving, armed and dangerous.

    Baby (Ansel Elgort) is a getaway driver for heist arranger Doc (Kevin Spacey). Plagued by tinnitus, Baby tunes out his distracting “hum in the drum” by listening to music while he drives.
