    On February 23, 2015 at approximately 7:45 p.m. deputies responded to 10325 Avelar Ridge Drive in reference to a suspicious person/trespasser call. The homeowners, who recently moved to Illinois on military orders, contacted HCSO with a request to check on the home due to a neighbor notifying them that someone was attempting to move in. Deputies were able to identify the suspects living in the home through investigative means, but the suspects were not present at that time. The homeowner requested the neighbor to change out the locks on the residence, which was done. Deputies responded again on February 24, 2014 to follow up the investigation. The responding deputies observed pry marks on the rear sliding glass doors, made contact with the suspects inside of the residence and arrested them. All 3 subjects have significant arrest histories within Hillsborough County and also have histories of unlawfully moving into vacant homes (squatting). Tequila Smith was recently trespassed from another home in Riverview.
