Police arrest Tampa men in string of robberies

TAMPA — Police arrested two more people Friday they think were involved in several violent robberies across four Tampa Bay area counties.

Alden B. Lewis, 27, and Antonio C. Harris, 21, both of Tampa, were charged with three counts of armed robbery, three counts of armed kidnapping and drug possession.

Tampa police said they were part of the group that robbed 10 places, including a hair salon and two gas stations in Pasco, and six 7-Elevens in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Polk counties. The holdups began May 11. The most recent robbery, a Land O'Lakes Mobil station, took place Thursday.

Tampa police said detectives across six jurisdictions identified the robbers' masks, a devil mask and a hockey mask to link the robberies.

Two other men were arrested in Pasco County Thursday and were charged with the same crimes.

    LITHIA — The things that make a house a home dried in the afternoon sun Thursday in a front yard on Williams Street.

    Volunteers from FishHawk Fellowship Church helped Brian Hood (left) clean up debris from his yard in Valrico, Fla. Last week the Alafia River reached a depth of almost 23 feet, about 10 feet above its flood stage. Many homes were damaged, some became uninhabitable. Hood's home is 6 inches above Lithia Pinecrest Road, and did not sustain flood damage, though not all of his neighbors were as lucky.   [MONICA HERNDON   |   Times]
