Wesley Chapel’s king has been robbed by one his own. Wesley Chapel’s Burger King, that is.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO), 22-year-old Jacob Dillon Lavely (who has no permanent address) was arrested on April 15 for stealing several hundred dollars from the Burger King at the intersection of S.R. 54 and Bruce B. Downs (BBD) Blvd. He also is an employee of the fast food restaurant.
PCSO says that surveillance video shows Lavely entering the business after it had closed on April 10, wearing panty hose over his head. Once inside, Lavely reportedly located the safe, opened it and removed an undisclosed amount of cash.
PCSO reports that Lavely then walked to a nearby gas station and was picked up by a female driver and taken to an unnamed motel in Zephyrhills, that he paid for with cash that he had stolen from the Burger King. After being tracked down and arrested, Lavely admitted to the crime.
Lavely was still in custody at our press time in lieu of a $20,000 bond for burglary of a business, grand theft and committing a third-degree felony while wearing a mask.
