Two teens arrested in string of Tarpon Springs car burglaries

TARPON SPRINGS — Two teenagers were arrested Tuesday morning in a string of overnight car burglaries, police say.

Jacob Spike Kirsch, 19, of Holiday, faces seven felony counts, including grand theft and vehicle burglary, and four misdemeanor charges, including petty theft and loitering and prowling.

He was being held Wednesday at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $142,000 bail.

Tarpon Springs police say Kirsch and a 15-year-old co-defendant, who the St. Petersburg Times isn't naming because of his age, burglarized vehicles at four separate locations on Watermill Circle, Sandy Hills Avenue, Dixie Highway and Brittany Park Boulevard in Tarpon Springs.

It was not immediately clear whether the 15-year-old will be charged as an adult.

Among the items police say the pair stole were cell phones, cash, a camera and a Nintendo DS Lite.

After they were caught at about 6 a.m., police say the two cooperated and admitted to stealing the property.

    “Touchdown” Tom Jones, the best Bucs columnist in town, htook it to the house Tuesday when he wrote that Jameis Winston should do the right thing and take a seat if he’s not perfectly healthy to play at Buffalo.

    Don't be a hero, Jameis.

    Do the right thing. Do what's best.

  3. NBA off and running to its usual ending


    The NBA season began Tuesday night.

    It ends in June.

    Call me when the Warriors win.

    True, there was news Tuesday night, bad news, grisly news, as Celtics small forward and newcomer Gordon Hayward dislocated his ankle and broke his tibia in a look-away injury early in Boston’s opener at LeBron.

  4. It's time for the Dodgers to be back in the World Series


    It’s hard to believe that it’s been 29 years since the Los Angeles Dodgers made the World Series. That’s far too long. I still remember being at Chavez Ravine for the 1988 World Series, watching Kirk Gibson homer into the right field stands to beat the Oakland A’s in Game 1.

    Been a long …
