How/Why: 

 The following is preliminary information, as detectives are still working on sorting out the details and the involvement of the suspects in this case.

On December 17, 2011 deputies received information that a suspect involved in a residential burglary that occurred in Manatee County on December 12, 2011, may be at a private residence located at 1669 S. Evergreen Drive in Clearwater. Deputies had information that firearms had been stolen from that residence.

Deputies responded to the Clearwater home, located the suspect 17-year-old Tory Foster and arrested him without incident on the active warrant for armed burglary out of Manatee County. 

Detectives from the Burglary and Pawn Unit responded, and as they interviewed the suspect and other witnesses, they received additional information that led them to locate various firearms (seven handguns and one riffle) in the home; and identify two additional suspects.

One of the suspects identified as 17 year-old Jacob McClamma was arrested in the home for grand theft firearm. The second suspect, identified as 18-year-old Codey Harper attempted to flea and was tracked and apprehended by the K-9 Unit. He was also arrested for grand theft firearm.
