3 arrested for Pasco business burglaries

Posted: Updated:
WESLEY CHAPEL, FL (WFLA) -

For the past few months, the Pasco Sheriff's Office has been trying to find out who was breaking into businesses in Wesley Chapel and stealing merchandise.

On Tuesday, a team lead by Captain Jack Armstrong pieced the puzzle together using what Sheriff Chris Nocco calls intelligence led-policing.

Armstrong said, "We were able through some surveillance video of one of the shops identify one of the suspects."

That suspect is Sarah Zachman. She led deputies to two other suspects.  Jamar Thompson and Christian Quevedo.  Quevedo was then linked to the crimes by what he was wearing.

Armstrong said, "The suspect was wearing besides a ski mask and dark clothing was wearing purple tennis shoes. Through that we looked at one of the previous victims video tape that he had at his business and a person of interest was actually purples tennis shoes."

Quevedo was taken into custody after a traffic stop. Inside his home, detectives found the ski mask and purple shoes.

All three suspects are in the Pasco jail and are facing nine charges of burglary.  Captain Armstrong says there most likely will be more charges added later.
