COUPLE PICKS THE WRONG HOUSE FOR A LOOK-SEE

TARPON SPRINGS

Tarpon Springs police Sgt. Edward Miller wasn't buying any of the explanations about why a vehicle was parked in his driveway about 11 p.m. Tuesday. The driver, 23-year-old Amber L. Wells, told him she was having car trouble, but he noticed no mechanical issues. Then Wells' passenger, 21-year-old Taylor Cope, walked around from the side of the home. As Miller started questioning them, both Wells and Cope "were extremely nervous" and said they didn't have any identification on them, the police report said. Cope offered to retrieve his from the home next door, where he said he lived. But Miller told them he knew Cope didn't live there. The two ran, but Miller was able to catch Wells, of New Port Richey. She was charged with loitering and prowling and driving while license is suspended or revoked. She was released from the Pinellas County Jail on Wednesday afternoon after posting a $500 bail. Cope was not found.
