Two arrested, another sought in Pasco home invasion

NEW PORT RICHEY — Two men are in custody in connection with a home invasion robbery that happened Oct. 5 at an apartment at Trinity Palms in Seven Springs.

According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, four assailants armed with baseball bats and a gun charged into the apartment of a 25-year-old man. The foursome beat the man with the bats, shot him in the leg and duct-taped his mouth and hands, a report states. The robbers stole cash from the man before fleeing.

Two suspects have been arrested: Robert B. Mills, 42, of New Port Richey, and Charles E. Jones, 18, of Port Richey. Both are charged with home invasion robbery with a weapon.

Jones was arrested Oct. 8 and released from the Pasco County jail the next day on $50,000 bail.

Mills was arrested Tuesday. He is being held at the jail in lieu of $150,000 bail.

A third suspect, whose name was not released, is cooperating with authorities and has not been charged, said Kevin Doll, spokesman for the Sheriff's Office.

A fourth suspect is at-large. Doll said deputies are searching for Michael Christopher Bertram, 33, of Port Richey. Doll asked for anyone with information on Bertram's whereabouts to call the Sheriff's Office at (727) 844-7711. Anonymous tips can be left at 1-800-706-2488.
