PORT CHARLOTTE, FL -
Two men were arrested by Charlotte County Sheriff's Office detectives on Tuesday for a burglary and theft of $2,300 worth of fishing rods and reels.
Kevin Paul Boroczyk, 19, and Timothy Michael Warnock, 18, both of Port Charlotte, were stopped by deputies on May 10th after they were observed putting a yellow extension cord into a Cadillac that had been stopped in the middle of the road.
When deputies approached, the men attempted to drive away, but they were ultimately stopped.
Inside the car, deputies found eight fishing rods and reels and the extension cord. The men said the fishing equipment belonged to them, and the serial numbers on the equipment had not been reported stolen.
The next morning, CCSO received a call where a homeowner reported that fishing rods and reels had been stolen. He was unable to provide any serial numbers until May 19th. The list of serial numbers matched what the deputy recorded on May 10th.
On Tuesday, detectives attempted to contact Warnock at his home. While they were at the home, they witnessed Boroczky's Cadillac drive by. Warnock appeared to be a passenger in the vehicle.
A traffic stop was conducted and both men were placed under arrest.
They were both charged with burglary and grand theft. The investigation is still ongoing.
