Three teens arrested after home, vehicle burglaries on Clearwater Beach

CLEARWATER — Police say they believe three teenagers are responsible for burglarizing at least one home and several vehicles on Clearwater Beach.

One teenager's mother also was arrested when Clearwater police serving a search warrant said they found her with drugs.

Herbert William Wagner, 17, of 865 Lantana Ave., Clearwater Beach, was charged with burglary of a dwelling, grand theft and auto burglary after police served the search warrant on Jan. 21 and found items that had been stolen from a home in the 900 block of Narcissus Avenue on Dec. 10, according to a news release.

Police also found items that had been reported stolen in several Clearwater Beach vehicle burglaries, the release said.

Wagner's mother, Julie Ann Lockett, 48, also of Clearwater Beach, was charged with possession of hydromorphone and drug paraphernalia. Both mother and son were arrested Jan. 21 when the search warrant was served.

During their investigation, detectives determined that 18-year-old Lorenzo James Russo III of 1602 Bayshore Blvd. in Dunedin and 17-year-old Joel David Neidige of Clearwater, whose address was not provided by police, also participated in the home burglary, according to the release.

They were both arrested Jan. 24 and charged with burglary of a dwelling, grand theft and auto burglary.

Detectives said they have linked Wagner, Russo and Neidige to a vehicle burglary on Gardenia Street on Dec. 28 and believe the trio is responsible for at least seven other vehicle burglaries.

An investigation is ongoing.
