Three Arrested for Selling Stolen Appliances from New Homes in Central Florida

Three individuals were arrested for selling stolen appliances from new construction homes in Central Florida within Hillsborough County, Marion County, Hernando County, Manatee County and Sarasota County.

Detectives recovered more than $100,000 worth of stolen property.

Through investigative means, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office detectives confirmed that 32-year-old Alberto Gomez Sardinas, 36-year-old Jose Hernandez O’Relly, and 24-year-old Yansiel Consuegra were obtaining items stolen from homes under construction and reselling them for a profit.

Rest assured, they will be held accountable for their actions.”
