Florida Couple Calls 911 To Ask Deputies To Help Move Items From Home They Were Burglarizing

In Poinciana, Florida, 911 dispatchers received a call. According to Fox 12 News, nobody spoke and the caller hung up, so Polk County deputies arrived to a home where the call came from to perform a welfare check. When they saw the back door was unlocked, the officers walked inside and discovered Martin Gonzalez-Garcia and Ashializ Roldan-Oscasio. Coincidentally, Gonzalez-Garcia was already wanted after the 23-year-old was identified as a burglary suspect at a Dollar General store.

According to authorities, Roldan-Oscasio had called the police to help them transport the items that they had taken from the house to the airport, so they could take a flight to New York. “Deputies DID help them with their belongings, and DID give them a ride, but it wasn’t to the airport. . . It was to the Polk Pokey,” the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post.

Gonzalez-Garcia was charged with burglary and theft related to the Dollar General robbery, as well as the burglary of a residence. Roldan-Oscasio was also charged with burglary of a residence, along with possession of cannabis and drug paraphernalia.
