BROOKSVILLE, Fla. – A Florida man and woman are in hot water after making themselves comfortable in someone else’s home.
On Wednesday at 3:07 p.m., Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a residence on Shafton Road in Brooksville in reference to a Residential Burglary.
According to investigators, the homeowner, who is currently out of state, was contacted by his pool cleaner who observed unknown individuals inside of the client’s home.
When deputies arrived on the scene, they located two individuals inside the residence.
The suspects were identified as Amanda Robbins, 25, and Cory Roberts, 34.
Deputies found numerous narcotics and paraphernalia in view throughout the residence. This included 66 grams of methamphetamine. They also found numerous credit cards, checkbooks, and personal identification cards not belonging to the suspects.
During questioning, Robbins said she entered the residence through an unlocked rear sliding glass door. She then invited Roberts to the residence once she realized the homeowners were gone.
Robbins told investigators that she cashed a forged check for $150. A second attempt to cash a forged check was unsuccessful.
Deputies say that an investigation revealed the stolen checkbooks were from the residences of other victims.
Robbins and Roberts were each charged with Burglary of a Dwelling, Trafficking in Methamphetamine, and Unlawful Possession of Personal Identification.
They were both transported to the Hernando County Detention Center where they are each being held in lieu of a $65,000 bond.
Additional charges against both suspects are pending further investigation.
