Pasco teens accused of taking food from homeless shelter’s warehouse

HUDSON — A pair of 18-year-olds face burglary charges after they broke into a warehouse that stores goods for the homeless, and ate and destroyed $480 worth of packaged meals, a Pasco County Sheriff’s Office report said.

Allison Marie Pfiffer and Caleb Gage-Walker Overbey, both of 6228 Tower Drive, Hudson, were arrested Friday, the sheriff’s office said.

Pfiffer and Overbey took food belonging to The Rope Center, 9515 Denton Ave., the report said. They also are accused of using military sleeping bags and cots that belonged to Pasco County Stand Down, a non-profit organization that aids homeless veterans.

The organizations share warehouse space on Denton Avenue.

The sleeping bags and cots were “rendered useless,” and a forklift inside the warehouse was damaged, the report said. The forklift’s propane tank also was missing, the report said.

At the scene, an investigator found a prescription bottle with Overbey’s information and a Greyhound bus ticket that belonged to Pfiffer, the report said.

Pfiffer and Overbey told an investigator that they had stayed at the warehouse for a few nights, because they had nowhere else to go.

Pfiffer was being held at the Land O’ Lakes Jail on Monday with bail at $5,000; Overbey was being held at the jail with bail at $10,000, records show.
