No one injured in Zephyrhills home invasion

ZEPHYRHILLS — Four people broke into a home early Monday and took cash, TVs and video games after threatening residents with a nail-studded 2 by 4, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies accused Harold Sandoval Hernandez, 18, Myriah Spencer Arrowood, 19, Marie Guadalupe Villareal, 22, and Michael Thomas Arrowood, 22, of entering the home and taking $445 in cash and TVs, video games and electronics worth about $1,000.

Deputies responded to 5054 Birchwood Drive about 1:54 a.m. Four people were home at the time of the break-in. No one was injured.

Shortly after the break-in, deputies pulled over a silver Kia about a mile from the crime scene that matched the description given by victims. The four suspects were inside.

Hernandez faces charges of home invasion robbery with a weapon and grand theft. He was being held at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $152,000 bail. Villareal faces charges of grand theft, home invasion robbery and possession of marijuana. She was being held in lieu of $57,000 bail.

Myriah Arrowood and Michael Arrowood each face charges of home invasion robbery and grand theft. Both also had outstanding warrants for probation violation. They were held without bail.

Michael Arrowood was convicted in June of burglary, trespassing and possessing a weapon on school property.
