At approximately 12:47 P.M. yesterday (10/14/2010) detectives from the St. Petersburg Police Department's C.A.S.E. Unit arrested Mangon, Agosto and Dibiaggio during the commission of an in-progress residential burglary at 6500 5 Avenue North in St. Petersburg.
The suspects made entry to the home by breaking out a rear bedroom window and, once inside, stole a flat screen television along with other miscellaneous articles to include electronics.
The suspects were arrested without incident by detectives after they had returned to their vehicle, a 1999 dark blue Acura belonging to Agosto, with the stolen property.
Detectives from the Burglary Unit responded and through their subsequent investigation determined that Dibiaggio, Agosto, Mangon, along with two other suspects, Hicks and Dixon were responsible for an extensive number of residential burglaries all across the St. Petersburg area.
Dixon was already in custody at the Pinellas County Jail on burglary charges at the time of these arrests. Hicks was later located in the area of 62 Avenue North and Dr. MLK Jr. Street and was arrested by detectives at about 3:30 P.M.
A search of Agosto's home by detectives netted the recovery of an extensive amount of property taken from other home burglaries to include guns, televisions, prescription drugs, laptop computers, expensive baseball cards, and game systems.
Detectives believe that this group of suspects have been very active and are responsible for at least 20 or more residential burglaries over the last two months.
Investigating detectives will be available to the media for questions or interviews if desired.
Detectives are also asking that anyone with information regarding these suspects and activities to contact them 727-893-4063.
