Videocamera nabs neighbor in Hernando home burglary, deputies say

SPRING HILL — A Spring Hill man who said he felt that someone had been coming into his home and stealing prescription medications set up a videocamera and nabbed a neighbor, authorities said.

Michael Carter told Hernando County deputies that he set up the videocamera in his bedroom and on Monday afternoon, he left the house to go to the dentist.

When he returned, he played the video and saw his neighbor, Jason Nelson, 36, in his bedroom removing items from the top dresser drawer, according to an arrest report.

Nelson told deputies that he entered the house and took five tablets from the dresser drawer. He also admitted taking the pills, the report said.

Nelson was arrested on a charge of burglary of a dwelling and held at the Hernando County jail on $5,000 bail.
