PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's detectives arrested two men Tuesday for a burglary and theft of $2,300 worth of fishing rods and reels.
On May 10 at 11:45 p.m., a deputy observed a grey Cadillac stopped in the middle of the road in the 300 block of Hallcrest Terrace in Port Charlotte. The deputy saw subjects putting a yellow extension cord into the car. When they saw the deputy approach, they attempted to drive off but the deputy stopped the car. Inside were eight fishing rods and reels, and the extension cord.
Kevin Paul Boroczyk, 19, of 22289 Tennyson Avenue and Timothy Michael Warnock, 18, of 2291 Tamarind Street, said the fishing equipment belonged to them. Serial numbers were recorded by the deputy and a check revealed they were not reported stolen. The subjects were released at that time as there was no evidence a crime had been committed.
However, the next morning, CCSO received a call and responded to a home in the 23000 block of Shelby Avenue concerning theft of fishing rods and reels. The owner was unable to provide any serial numbers at that time. On May 19, the victim provided detectives with a list of serial number that matched what the deputy recorded on May 10.
Tuesday, detectives attempted to make contact with Warnock at his home. While at his residence, the detective observed Boroczky’s 1998 Cadillac drive by; Warnock was driving and Boroczyk was a passenger. The detective conducted a traffic stop and both were placed under arrest; the Cadillac was towed to the CCSO impound yard for forfeiture.
Both are charged with Burglary and Grand Theft. This is Boroczky’s 10th booking; he posted a $7,500 bond and was released. Warnock remains in jail on a $7,500 bond; this is his 2nd booking. The investigation continues.
