Police arrest suspect in business robbery

A man has been arrested in connection with the robbery of Florida Water Services.

Joseph Frederick Auche, 34, of 4365 Cartee Ave. in Spring Hill faces one count of robbery. Authorities say he walked into the business at 7429 Spring Hill Drive on March 9 and demanded money from a cashier. The robber said he had a gun and left with $150.

According to sheriff's reports, a confidential informer told police that Auche had bragged about taking a cab to the business, robbing it and then spending the money on alcohol. Auche was taken to the Hernando County Jail, where he remained Thursday in lieu of $10,000 bail.
