Two teens arrested in connection with Spring Hill burglaries

SPRING HILL — Two teenagers were arrested Monday after admitting to several recent burglaries, authorities said.

Sebastian Jaquan Xavier Plunk, 18, of Spring Hill told investigators that on July 30 he stole a .38-caliber revolver from a Ford truck parked in front of a home in the 6000 block of Waycross Drive, an arrest report states. A 16-year-old Spring Hill boy arrested in connection with another burglary on the same day told investigators that he acted as a lookout for Plunk. Both teens said they burglarized multiple vehicles that day. The teens also admitted to breaking into the concession stand at Delta Woods Park and stealing food multiple times between July 26 and Aug. 1, the Sheriff's Office said.

Both teens were charged with burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief. Plunk was also charged with failure to appear. He was being held Tuesday without bail in the Hernando County Detention Center. The other teen, whom the Times is not naming because of his age and the nature of the charges, was taken to the Department of Juvenile Justice center in Ocala.

Detectives arrested but did not name a third suspect in connection with the vehicle burglaries, which are still under investigation. Four stolen guns have been recovered, the Sheriff's Office said.
