On 11-08-18, detectives with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office viewed surveillance video showing the driver of a Silver Toyota Tundra illegally dumping an old camper top in a wooded lot off Highfield Road in Spring Hill.

On 11-17-18, a home under construction located on Skyler Lane was burglarized. The suspects removed $350 worth of building materials from the garage.

Upon conducting a neighborhood canvass, Detectives were able to access surveillance video from a nearby home that showed a Silver Toyota Tundra pulling an open trailer near the burglarized home.

Utilizing the description of the vehicle, detectives were able to identify Kyle Sanders W/M DOB/05-05-1985, as a possible suspect in both cases.

Sanders was in possession of a truck and trailer that matched images caught on surveillance video.

On 11-28-18, detectives spotted Sanders driving the vehicle in question along Spring Hill Drive while towing a trailer and conducted a traffic stop.

Upon questioning by detectives, both Sanders and his passenger, Leon Howard, W/M DOB/03-27-1987, confessed to committing the burglary and illegal dumping.

Howard told detectives the burglary was his idea as he is homeless and needed the supplies to build a shelter.

Sanders and Howard said they dumped the camper top due to being unable to sell it for scrap.

Both Sanders and Howard were each charged with Burglary of a Construction Site. Additional charges for illegal dumping are pending further investigation.
