TARPON SPRINGS – Pinellas County Sheriff’s detectives added charges of residential burglary and grand theft to those of a Tampa man currently being held in the Hillsborough County Jail.

Henry William Gass, 31, was arrested for residential burglary and grand theft and is in jail on unrelated charges including one count misdemeanor possession of marijuana, one count misdemeanor possession of prescription pills, one count  possession of drug paraphernalia, and a violation of parole from Collier County.

Gass was arrested on Sunday, May 11, during a traffic stop in Tampa. The residential burglary at a private residence in Tarpon Springs occurred on Friday, May 9.

Detectives assigned to the Burglary and Pawn Unit responded to investigate a residential burglary that occurred at Tarpon Springs residence Saturday, May 10. The victim reported that more than $103,000 worth of jewelry and personal items had been stolen from her home.

The victim advised that the pool cleaner, identified as Gass, had arrived at her residence that day. She further advised deputies that she lost sight of him for a few minutes and that he then abruptly left her residence, leaving his pool cleaning tools behind. The victim later discovered that her jewelry was missing.

Through their investigation, detectives determined the suspect lived in Tampa. After initially not locating him at his place of residence, detectives requested the assistance of deputies from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. HCSO deputies and Pinellas deputies established surveillance. They later located the suspect, conducted a traffic stop, and HCSO arrested him for various drug related charges and a VOP from Collier County.

Pinellas County Sheriff’s detectives were subsequently able to locate the stolen jewelry inside the suspect’s work truck as well as inside his home. The recovered items were identified by the victim and returned to her possession.

During an interview by Pinellas Sheriff’s detectives, Gass reportedly admitted to the crime. The suspect was transported to the Hillsborough County Jail. On May 13, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Gass’ extradition to Pinellas County on burglary and grand theft charges.

The suspect was employed at Masters Pool Care, LLC in Tampa.

Anyone with additional information that may assist detectives in this case is asked to contact Detective Alan Clark of the Burglary and Pawn Unit at 727-582-6200.
