Two Riverview residents are facing charges after Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies apprehended them after allegedly commiting multiple auto burglaries.

On Oct. 4, at 3:23 a.m., deputies responded to a call about a car burglary in progress at 5337 Watson Rd., Riverview. The victim said he saw someone break into his car and then flee on foot behind houses in the subdivision.

While on the way to the location, deputies learned the victim was following a suspicious vehicle he spotted in front of his house. 

Deputies spotted and stopped the car driven by Alexis Boyde, 23, of 5012 Claymore Dr., #202, Tampa.

Inside the car, deputies found burglary tools and multiple bags containing GPS devices, game consoles, cameras and cell phones.

As deputies were searching the car, a cell phone rang and a female deputy answered it, thinking it could be a victim calling.

On the phone was Dehaven Osley, 23, of 5509 Legacy Crescent Place,
Riverview. Believing it was Boyde who had answered the phone, Osley gave the deputy instructions to pick him up at the 7-Eleven at 11015
Bloomingdale Ave.

Deputies responded to the 7-Eleven and encountered Osley, who said he was waiting for Boyde to pick him up.

Both Osley and Boyd were arrested and transported to the Hillsborough County Jail where they face multiple counts of vehicle burglary, possession of burglary tools and grand theft.

During the course of the investigation, victims were identified and property
was returned.
