ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. — A 23-year-old man is accused of breaking into an acquaintance's home Saturday in Zephyrhills and stealing more than $1,600 worth of merchandise, then posting the loot on Snapchat less than four hours later.
According to a Pasco County Sheriff’s report, Steven Jeffcott is accused of taking a watch, two firearms and a crossbow.
Within hours, Jeffcott posted photos of himself shooting one of the guns, along with a video in which he is holding the stolen goods, according to investigators.
The victim reportedly saw Jeffcott’s snaps and called the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office. He was able to cite identifying characteristics of the stolen items, and investigators found a shoe print at the crime scene that is consistent with Jeffcott’s shoes, the arrest affidavit shows.
The victim told police he suspected Jeffcott because he knew the man had lost money on the Super Bowl.
Jeffcott has various theft charges in Pasco county dating back to 2016, including burglary. He is currently being held in the Pasco County Jail on $60,000 bond.
