The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two Sarasota teens twice in two days for burglary, with one of the crimes occurring just hours after their release from jail.
Malachi Greulich, DOB 10/20/98, 2938 West Mark Drive, and Shane Crowther, DOB 8/4/98, 4448 Denice Lane, were arrested Wednesday with two other people in connection with a January burglary on East Mark Drive in which $3,600 worth of electronics, jewelry and fishing equipment was taken. The boys were released to their parents that afternoon.
Last night, deputies responded to a burglary on South Mark Drive after a neighbor spotted the teens breaking in. The witness realized the suspects were the same kids who burglarized his home last month. Greulich and Crowther were located a few blocks away. The pair had taken a stereo and a skateboard valued at more than $500.
Each teen faces one new felony charge for Burglary in addition to the two prior counts of Burglary and Larceny. They are now being held by the Department of Juvenile Justice.
