New Port Richey man arrested in October shooting


Suspect in shooting arrested by marshals

A man wanted for shooting another man in the leg in October was arrested Tuesday by U.S. marshals.

Shane Michael Haney, 21, of 5940 Missouri Ave. faces a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was taken into custody without incident near Trouble Creek Road and Terry Loop.

New Port Richey police say Haney and Daramis Stevenson, also 21, got into an argument on Haney's front porch about 9:30 p.m. Oct. 30. The confrontation led to Haney shooting Stevenson in the upper right leg, police said. Haney fled the area and did not return home.

After he was arrested Tuesday, Haney told police there had been a struggle over the gun and it went off accidentally.


Burglar gets 15 years for series of break-ins

A 22-year-old man who was accused of burglarizing dozens of mobile homes went to prison this week for 15 years.

Arnie Bauer told Circuit Judge Pat Siracusa he got hooked on Roxicodone three years ago and stole to feed his habit. He was arrested in November and suspected of breaking into at least 38 mobile homes, and perhaps as many as 67, in the communities of Valley Dale, Zephyr Ridge, Southern Charm, Florida Estates, Green Hill Estates, Spanish Trails and Betmar Acres.

He pleaded to eight counts of residential burglary and one count of dealing in stolen property. Prosecutors agreed not to pursue the rest of the cases in exchange for his plea.
