The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office has arrested two teenagers for burglarizing an unoccupied home in Sarasota.
An alert neighbor contacted deputies around 11:30 a.m., yesterday when he saw the suspects enter the home in the 2300 block of Proctor Road. The witness also contacted the home’s owner who said no one had permission to be inside.
Deputies entered the house and found 18-year-old Michael Benedict, 2126 Roselawn Street, Sarasota, and 19-year-old Theodore Denny, no known address, in the northeast bedroom.
Both suspects were arrested and charged with one count each of Residential Burglary. They both have a history of burglary, battery and drug charges.
