A couple were arrested after they called 911 to move the stolen goods from a property they were robbing.
If you're a burglar, the last thing you want to do is alert the police but that's just what two burglars did, leading to hilarious consequences. As per Fox News, a couple robbed a house and then called 911 to seek help moving the stolen goods. The deputies learned of the robbery when they arrived at a home on Saturday after receiving a 911 call, but no one answered, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office. When the deputies arrived at the house, they thought it was empty however, after breaking in through an unlocked door, they discovered a male and female suspect inside.
According to a statement from the sheriff's office, officers had been looking for the robbery suspect after recognizing him on surveillance video as a burglar at a Dollar General store in Poinciana, Florida, where several items had been stolen previously in the day. Poinciana is roughly 35 miles south of Orlando.
The two robbers are Martin Gonzalez-Garcia who is 23 years old and Ashializ Roldan-Oscasio who is 22 years old, as per Sky News. On December 29, 2022, they allegedly carried out a home invasion when one of them called 911 to request help moving some of their belongings. The woman called to ask for a ride to the airport so she could stay the weekend in New York, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office. As per Sky News, the Polk County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post "Deputies DID help them with their belongings, and DID give them a ride, but it wasn't to the airport... it was to the Polk Pokey. And they are welcome to stay there all weekend long. The Polk Pokey is much better than New York anyway."
The couple admitted during interrogation that they were in the house because they were looking for a place to spend the night. In order to spend the weekend in New York, the couple also wanted a ride to the airport. Garcia, the male suspect, claimed that he was aware of the wrongness of his actions but had a pressing need for money. He continued by saying that despite knowing it was not his home and that entering would be against the law, he broke into the house to escape the cold, the arrest affidavit claims as per Fox 13.
The two suspects are also facing charges related to the possession of drugs. They are accused of having marijuana and drug paraphernalia in their possession. Neither, according to deputies, has a medical marijuana card. The police are still interrogating the case. Garcia the male suspect and Oscasio the female suspect are accused of burglarizing a house as well as the store and was also charged with theft. Burglary of a dwelling was the charge brought against the two.
