HOLIDAY — A 57-year-old man told Pasco deputies he stole more than $34,000 from his mother to buy crack.

Tim Alan Joseph Lebenta, 57, was arrested at his home in Holiday at 3438 Thorny Ridge Drive Saturday, charged with possession of cocaine and paraphernalia after deputies searched his home.

Reports say Lebenta told deputies he had smoked crack within the last two days and was hiding a crack pipe in his mother's bathroom. Deputies found crack pipes after a search.

Lebenta was being held in the Land O' Lakes jail Monday in lieu of a $1,150 bail.
