Pasco man wanted for questioning in burglary ring

NEW PORT RICHEY — The Pasco County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help to locate Aaron Lynn Vineyard, a 36-year-old man wanted for questioning about a "large burglary ring" in west Pasco, authorities said.

Deputies have arrested at least two other men — Kristopher James Watson, 25, and Jeffrey David Watson, 21 — on charges of burglary and dealing in stolen property.

Authorities say the men broke into a New Port Richey home, ransacked it and stole more than $6,000 in belongings.

The stolen items included two flat-screen televisions, a double-barrel shotgun, a rifle with a scope, and two jewelry boxes including an engraved man's wedding band and a topaz pendant. Some of the items were recovered after they were pawned at local shops.

Detectives believe Vineyard may have been involved in the crimes as well. His previous arrests in Pasco County includes charges of DUI, drug possession and child abuse.

Anyone with information about Vineyard's whereabouts may call the Pasco County Sheriff's Office at (727) 844-7711.
