Teen charged in string of home burglaries

An 18-year-old man was charged Tuesday with stealing items from two Hudson homes, authorities said.

Richard Eric Walker has been at the Land O'Lakes Jail since June 29, after deputies arrested him in a fraudulent use of a credit card case, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said.

The day after his arrest, authorities said, Walker agreed to drive around Hudson with deputies and point out places he's burglarized.

They determined that about 7 p.m. June 6 he stole a lawn mower and a tool set from a home on Fred Street, authorities said. A week later, about 11 p.m. June 12, deputies say, Walker took a $2,400 golf cart from a home on New York Avenue.

He was charged Tuesday with burglary and grand theft of a motor vehicle. He remained at the Land O'Lakes Jail Wednesday in lieu of a $38,813 bail.

The Sheriff's Office said its pawnshop detectives are working on recovering stolen items that have been sold on Craigslist or pawned in the county.
