PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff’s detectives Thursday arrested the third man involved in a May 10 burglary and theft of $2,300 in fishing rods and reels from a home in the 23000 block of Shelby Avenue, Port Charlotte.
Anthony Wendell Touchton, 18, of 21504 Holdern Avenue was arrested. He was charged with Burglary and Grand Theft, and additionally charged with Giving a False Name to Law Enforcement. This is his 17th booking into the Charlotte County Jail.
On May 10 a traffic stop was made due to suspicious activity in an area of recent home burglaries, the deputy identified the driver as Kevin Paul Boroczyk, 19, of 22289 Tennyson Avenue. His passengers were identified as Timothy Michael Warnock, 18, of 2291 Tamarind Street, both of Port Charlotte; Touchton gave the false name of Randall Carrington. The deputy located several fishing rods and reels in the car and the trio said they belonged to them. They were released as a check did not show the items reported stolen.
The next morning CCSO received a call to the 23000 block of Shelby Avenue concerning theft of fishing rods and reels valued at $2,300; the owner was unable to provide any serial numbers at that time. On May 19, the victim did provided detectives with a list of serial number that matched what the deputy recorded at the May 10 traffic stop.
Boroczyk and Warnock were arrested last Tuesday for Burglary and Grand Theft; both posted bond. Touchton remains in jail on $8,500 bond.
