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.
