Lakeland Brothers And Girlfriend Arrested In Polk County For Multiple Car Burglaries

LAKELAND, Fl. – A pair of brothers with extensive criminal histories were arrested by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday, November 4, 2021, for burglarizing multiple vehicles in a north Lakeland neighborhood.

A woman who is the girlfriend of one of the men was also arrested.

According to deputies, the burglaries were committed in the residential area of West Daughtery Road and Crafton Drive in unincorporated Lakeland, in the early morning hours Thursday.

Arrested were 26-year old Henry Harrison, his brother 25-year old Joseph Harrison, and Joseph’s girlfriend, 22-year old Robin Rent.

Witnesses called into the Emergency Communications Center (ECC) at about 4:41 AM and reported seeing two suspicious men dressed in dark clothing and attempting to open vehicle doors. PCSO deputies immediately responded.

While searching for the suspects, a sergeant stopped a vehicle driven by a man who drives for Uber and Lyft transportation services. Inside of the car were two men matching the description of the suspects.

The men were identified as Henry and Joseph Harrison and were in possession of property that had been stolen from the victims’ vehicles. Among the stolen property in their possession was a handgun.

Joseph had no shoes on when he was arrested. Deputies found one of his shoes next to a victim’s home, and the other was located outside of Rent’s residence.

During an interview with a detective, Rent admitted to being with the men all night.

“Great descriptions by alert witnesses and a quick response by deputies led to the capture of the three suspects involved, and they’re facing some pretty serious charges. Two of them are brothers with quite the criminal histories, so their family might not have to save them a spot at the table for Thanksgiving dinner,” said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.

Officers from the Lakeland Police Department also responded to the area to investigate some burglaries that occurred within their jurisdiction, and the suspects could receive additional criminal charges from them.
