Two men arrested in Pasco home invasion robbery

HUDSON — Three men, faces hidden and guns firing, burst into a mobile home on Turtle Lane early Wednesday, authorities said.

They wanted money.

They shot out a television, then turned to more precious targets.

Sheriff's Office spokesman Kevin Doll said the robbers held two children — a 6 months old and 2 years old — with guns to their heads.

No one was shot, and the men took off with some cash, Doll said.

A neighbor hopped on a motorcycle and followed them, until a deputy pulled the neighbor over, learned of the invasion and called it in.

Deputies had a solid lead: The victims had taken down the license plate number of the getaway car, the Sheriff's Office said.

Later Wednesday, the Sheriff's Office arrested two people in connection with the home invasion: Devin Lamm, 21, and Nicholas Bernhardt, 19.

The charges against them were not available Wednesday evening because the two had not yet been booked into the Pasco County jail.

Doll said deputies are still searching for a third robber. They also recovered three guns they believe were used in the crime.

Doll didn't know how many people were in the mobile home, which sits on a dirt road at the corner of Bolton Avenue, but described it as a number of women and children.

People in the neighborhood declined to talk to a reporter.
