Late-night Gibsonton police chase ends with crash, dog bite

GIBSONTON — A police chase about midnight Tuesday ended with a car crash and police dog bite for one of the four suspects.

Chara Lynn Lloyd, 18, Ashley Nicole Dennison, 16, Jesse Andrew Edge, 18, and Ricky Ray Murillo, 17, broke into 8802 Sassy Court, in the Pinewood mobile home park, just before midnight wearing masks and armed with handguns, Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies said.

All three residents, 51-year-old Ava Delk, 29-year-old Pasha Barron and 14-year-old Felicia Pepke, were home at the time.

The suspects left with a Nintendo GameCube, a Motorola cell phone, an iPod and a box of jewelry valued at about $400, according to an arrest report. They fled in a maroon Chevy Tahoe, and a neighbor called police.

A deputy spotted the car in the parking lot of the Gibsonton Drive Wal-Mart near Interstate 75 and chased it.

The car crashed into a ditch near Madison Avenue and Palm Drive, and deputies took three of the suspects into custody.

The driver of the Chevy, Murillo, ran. A police dog named Cowboy caught up to him near 74th Avenue and 51st Street, biting Murillo on the back of the leg. Police took him to Brandon Regional Hospital and then to the Hillsborough County Jail with the rest of the suspects.

All four were charged with felony robbery.
