The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a New Port Richey man in connection with a number of home burglaries.
Deputies need a little help locating a New Port Richey man who has been identified as a person of interest in a burglary ring that’s been targeting homes in West Pasco.
Aaron Lynn Vineyard, 36, is wanted in connection with the burglaries, according to a Pasco County Sheriff’s Office media release. His last known address was 9808 Shultz St., jail records state.
“He has an extensive criminal history in Pasco County including multiple DUI's, child abuse and possession of controlled substance arrests,” wrote sheriff’s office spokesman Doug Tobin.
Tobin classified the burglary ring as “large” and said arrests have been made.
Those arrested so far include:
- Kristopher James Watson, 25, of 10524 Evergreen St. in New Port Richey, was arrested Feb. 2 on multiple charges, including two counts of burglary of an occupied dwelling. He remained in the Land O’ Lakes Jail today, Feb. 7.
- Jeffrey Watson, 21, of the same Evergreen Street address, was arrested Feb. 1 in connection with the burglaries. He also faces multiple charges, including dealing in stolen property, and remains behind bars tonight.
The Watsons are brothers. Tobin did not say how many burglaries have been connected to the ring.
Anyone with information about Vineyard’s whereabouts is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 727-844-7711.
