Arrest made in burglary at Tampa Bay Rays' spring home

The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office made the first of several expected arrests in the burglary of the spring home shared by Tampa Bay Rays LHP David Price, 3B Evan Longoria and SS Reid Brignac.

And they didn't to go far to do it, as Steven Charles Vaughn, a 22-year-old Port Charlotte man, was already in the Charlotte County Jail on unrelated charges. Vaughn was charged with armed burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, grand theft and dealing in stolen property.

The players did not get back any of the items stolen, which included electronics, a fancy watch owned by Price and an AK-47 rife that was registered to Longoria.

According to the sheriff's office, this is Vaughn's 10th booking into the Charlotte County Jail with 52 records. Detectives said the investigation is ongoing and active and no other details are being released at this time.
