Two men connected to recent Hernando County gas station thefts

BROOKSVILLE — Authorities have arrested two men in connection with recent gas station robberies in Brooksville and Spring Hill.

Jeffrey N. Crum II, 31, and Travis Philip Guntor, 20, both of Brooksville, were caught and charged Wednesday evening, about an hour after one of the men entered a Mobil Mart station at 1394 Commercial Way shortly after 4 p.m., showed a knife and left the store with an undisclosed amount of cash, the Sheriff's Office said.

The man got into a silver Chrysler minivan driven by the other suspect. The Sheriff's Office did not say which of the men later charged with the crime brandished the knife and which one drove. A woman, 30-year-old Tammy Louise Mullen of Spring Hill, was also in the van, authorities said. The robbery and the van were caught on surveillance video.

About 5:30 p.m., Brooksville Police stopped a van matching that description near Cortez and Candlelight boulevards. Guntor, Crum and Mullen were arrested and charged with armed robbery. Guntor and Mullen were also charged with possession of a controlled substance.

During interviews after the arrests, police said, Crum admitted to investigators that he robbed a Chevron station at 717 S Broad St. in Brooksville on June 16.

Crum also admitted to driving the getaway car during a July 29 robbery at the Shop-N-Save store at 351 Ponce De Leon Blvd. in Brooksville, and Guntor admitted to robbing the store at knifepoint, police said.

Convicted of burglary earlier this year, Guntor was also charged with violating the terms of his probation.

Crum was out on bail after being charged last month with carrying a concealed firearm.

Both men were being held Thursday in the Hernando County Detention Center without bail. Mullen also remained in jail, with bail set at $20,500.
