Lutz home inspector accused of stealing kitchen appliances

LAND O'LAKES — A Sun Cove Realty Inc. inspector was arrested Thursday after authorities said he stole the kitchen appliances from a house managed by the firm and offered them for sale on Craigslist.

On June 10, detectives say, Christopher Zipter took the refrigerator, microwave, stove and dishwasher, totaling $2,700 from the house on Morgans Bluff Court.

Zipter, 26, of Lutz traded the items on Craigslist for a Suzuki motorcycle, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. He was charged with grand theft and dealing in stolen property.

Zipter remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Friday in lieu of a $12,000 bail.
