Two accused of trying to break in Gulfport home through 'doggie door'

GULFPORT — Two men face accusations that they tried to break into an occupied home Saturday through a pet door.

Police were called about 5 p.m. Saturday by the owner of the home at 2519 49th St. S about a burglary in progress.

Gulfport police said two men — Occossio Lamonz Nettles, 18, and Anthony Eugene Blue-Rogers, 24, both of St. Petersburg — came into a fenced back yard and "attempted to enter the house through the doggie door."

Both men ran when spotted, police said, and more officers arrived. Nettles was caught nearby, but Blue-Rogers had to be stopped by a police dog.

Both face a charge of burglary of an occupied dwelling, a felony. Blue-Rogers also faces a charge of resisting an officer without violence, a misdemeanor.
