    Quentin Hargrove
    Dob: 07/12/1997


    On April 19, 2019, between midnight at 7:00 a.m., deputies responded to the 4000th block Pennsbury Drive for reports of two home burglaries and several vehicle burglaries. Detectives say Quentin Hargrove was going into unlocked cars, finding the garage door opener and entering the occupied homes using the remotes.

    The Tampa Police Department was investigating similar cases in the New Tampa area recently. Through the investigation, HCSO was able to identify Hargrove. He was arrested on April 24, 2019.  Hargrove is charged with four counts of Burglary of an Occupied Dwelling, six counts of Burglary of an Unoccupied Conveyance and several other charges related to both agencies.

    HCSO would like to remind residents to keep their vehicles locked, even in their driveways. This case should also serve as a reminder to never leave your garage door opener in your vehicle.
