New Port Richey Men Looted Home, Police Say

Christopher Orshal and Jeffrey Goldsnider were charged with burglary and grand theft.

Two New Port Richey men were charged Friday, June 7 in connection to a Port Richey burglary. 

On Monday, Christopher Orshal and Jeffrey Goldsnider, both 25, stealthily entered a home on Berlin Drive in Port Richey while they were supposed to be working on tree cutting, according to an arrest report from a Port Richey police officer.

They took two jewelry boxes, according to the report. The total contents were valued at $5,500. They also took $300 from a glass jar, according to the report.

The victim told the officer the list of stolen items included two jewelry boxes, cash, a silver pocket watch, three rings and two watches.

Pasco County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Goldsnider and Orshal Wednesday in connection to an unrelated incident. Information on that arrest is unavailable.

They found items inside their home at 4203 Comet Drive, New Port Richey, that matched the description of items taken from the Port Richey home.

Goldsnider and Orshal were each charged with burglary of an unoccupied dwelling and grand theft in the Port Richey theft.

Let's see here they got $5800.00 assuming full price at the fence shop. They probably get $25,000. bond each which is $5000. cash for both to get bonded out. Then comes a $10,000. retainer each for a lawyer from their parents or another heist. Then they are sentenced to 3 to 5 for grand theft which will cost the State of Florida about $50k a year each plus probation costs afterwards. So who pays for their crimes? Simply put, We do.

It would be good to know which tree company they were working for (if any)!

Carole, your assessment is probably correct. Criminals should do hard labor, to repay 100% of their debt (ALL fees, state costs, victims, housing, food, etc) and not be released until it's paid. I know Sheriff Noco said inmates cannot be housed in tents like AZ does (unfortunately). I hate having to foot the bill for criminals. Sure they pay court costs and probation, but that does not come back to the taxpayers. Grrrrrrrrr

What do you suggest as an alternative? It'd be great if the prisons were profitable again, as they were in, say, the 1920s, but the Occupy types would be all over it. They already like to pretend someone profits from convictions and imprisonments.
