Two arrested after breaking into Tampa home, crashing stolen car, deputies say

TAMPA — Two men were arrested Monday after they broke into a house and crashed a stolen car, but one burglar remains at large, deputies said.

A resident called the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office just after 12 p.m. to report that men were knocking on doors of houses along Gannetglade Lane. Deputies arrived and saw the men leaving a house at 6117 Gannetwood Place with items they were loading into a Toyota Corolla that had been stolen the previous day.

They sped off in the car and crashed into a fence. The burglars ran off and hid in bushes half a mile away from the wrecked car. K9s tracked them down, and they were arrested, deputies said.

The men were identified as Randy Angel Ramos, 22, and Michael Angelo Beriguette, 21, both of Tampa.

Deputies recovered stolen TVs, computers and jewelry from the Toyota.

Ramos and Beriguette face several charges, including armed burglary, grand theft of a motor vehicle and opposing an officer without violence.

They were booked into the Hillsborough County jail, where they remained Tuesday morning without bail.

Deputies believe a third man is at large.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 873-8477.
