Two teenagers are facing burglary charges after a Sarasota County Sheriff's deputy caught them inside a Proctor Road home Monday morning removing items.
Michael Benedict, 18, of 2126 Roselawn St., and Theodore Denny, 19 of no known address, were found inside removing items at a home in the 2300 block of Proctor Road by a deputy at 11:30 a.m. Monday, according to the sheriff's office. Both face one county of residential burglary, according to the sheriff's office.
A neighbor witnessed the two entering a home and called the sheriff's office and the homeowner as well to check if anyone had permission to enter his home. The homeowner had been away since March, according to the probable cause affidavit.
Both Benedict and Denny have a history of burglary, battery and drug charges, according to the sheriff's office.
