When Hernando County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) deputies arrived to investigate a burglary in Spring Hill, they ended up arresting a pair of men who were busy removing parts from a car on Battersea Avenue.
According to HCSO Media Relations Manager Denise Moloney, detectives arrived at 1338 Battersea Ave. in Spring Hill on October 6, 2023, in response to a report of a burglary there.
At the scene, they found Jason Earon Williams, 42, and 30-year-old Michael Aaron Kiselyk standing outside the residence next to a car with its hood raised. They also saw car parts and several tools lying on the ground next to the vehicle, which was not owned or registered to either Kiselyk or Williams.
The pair admitted to using the tools brought to the scene by Williams to remove parts from the car. Williams also told deputies that one of the parts taken from the car was in his backpack, which was located on the ground beside his tools. When they searched his backpack, deputies found the car part along with several debit, credit and social security cards, some of which were in Williams’ name and some in the names of 15 others. Many of those bank cards were unexpired and were still valid.
Moloney also said that Williams told deputies that he had the cards of others because he was holding them for safekeeping and because, as “a contractor,” he finds cards in residences and old vehicles and “adds them to his collection.”
Ultimately, deputies arrested Williams and booked him into the Hernando County Detention Center on charges of the burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, possession of burglary tools with the intent to use, and unlawful possession of five or more personal IDs. He is being held on a $25,000 bond.
Kiselyk was also arrested and charged with the burglary of an unoccupied dwelling and possession of burglary tools with intent to use.
He is being held at the Hernando County Detention Center on a $12,500 bond.
