Man arrested in 2009 Pasco home invasion robbery

PORT RICHEY — A suspect in a June 2009 home invasion robbery at Windtree Apartments was arrested this week

Nelson R. White, 19, is accused of breaking into an apartment on Date Palm Boulevard with three other men and robbing two adults at gunpoint. There also were three young children inside the apartment at the time of the robbery, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

One of the attackers allegedly shoved a gun in the mouth of a woman who lived at the apartment and said he would kill her if she screamed again. One assailant held down the man; another pinned down the woman; one was a lookout at the door while the fourth rummaged through the apartment. The thieves stole 2 ounces of marijuana, a laptop computer, jewelry and $150.

White, who was 17 at the time of the robbery, was extradited from Louisiana and booked Wednesday at the Land O'Lakes jail, where he remained Thursday in lieu of $250,000 bail.

The three other suspects are still at large.
