ZEPHYRHILLS _ Lykes-Pasco Inc. has filed plans with Pasco County for construction of a 25,000-square-foot building on County Road 54, just east of County Road 54A and the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad tracks. The plans refer to the building as the Lykes Data Center and show it beside an existing 45,000-square-foot building that also is owned by Lykes-Pasco, according to county records. Lykes-Pasco manufactures food-dispensing equipment in the existing building. The two buildings would share a 22-acre parcel, county records show. Lykes-Pasco spokesman Pete Brock declined to comment on the company's plans for the Lykes Data Center. "We're not yet ready to release any information," he said.3 students charged in burglaries
NEW PORT RICHEY _ Three Gulf High students have been arrested in connection with a string of burglaries in the Veterans Village area, according to Pasco County Sheriff's Office reports. Two 15-year-olds were charged in six residential burglaries that have occurred since late January. A third student, 16, was involved in one of the burglaries, according to Sheriff's Office reports. Sheriff's Office spokesman Jon Powers said the juveniles took mostly small amounts of cash, as well as food and soft drinks. A BB gun was taken from one residence, but later was recovered, Powers said. The youths entered homes either through unlocked side garage doors or by cutting window screens and opening windows, he said. The youths, all from New Port Richey, were arrested late Monday and early Tuesday and have been released to their parents. None had criminal records, Powers said.
