SCF Tip: Don't ring the bell
BRANDON, Fla. — So much for stealth.
Authorities said a trio trying to open a locked door alerted a sleeping homeowner when one of them rang the doorbell.
Homeowner Samuel Sanchez, 35, confronted the burglars about 11:30 a.m. Monday. One of them was still trying to open the door with a pocket knife, Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies said. The men ran, according to the St. Petersburg Times.
Deputies arrived moments later and arrested three teen suspects, including one found hiding in a trash bin. They were all charged with attempted burglary.
