SPRING HILL, FL – On Monday July 6, 2020, Hernando County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a construction burglary on Old Windsor Way in the Avalon community located in Spring Hill, FL. According to the report, a construction supervisor advised deputies that an unknown suspect entered a residence under construction and removed 21 kitchen and bath cabinets that were still in boxes. The items were valued at more than $5,000.

On Wednesday July, 29-2020, the same construction supervisor was notified of two suspicious vehicles driving around Avalon and the construction site. The construction supervisor was able to provide a tag number for one of the vehicles. The registered owner of that vehicle was Ana Rojas, 38, who lives on Amero Lane in Spring Hill. Detectives responded to the Amero Lane residence to conduct further investigation and upon arrival, deputies knocked on the front door, and a juvenile opened the door.
