Teens arrested for Tampa crime spree

Posted at 11:29 PM, Mar 03, 2017

Detectives arrested three teens, who are responsible for a crime spree in Tampa, from armed robberies to a carjacking.

"The only thing that I remember thinking, staring at the gun was...oh that's not fake," Tiffany Morgan said when she saw a gun pointed at her.

Morgan remembers jogging on Kennedy Boulevard when three teens pulled up next to her.

"He said give me everything that you have," Morgan said.

She walked backwards, trying to get away, and handed over some money.

"Yeah it makes me feel a little unsafe, having it happen here," Morgan said.

A short time later Trevor Mungovan encountered at least two of the same suspects.

"I just floored it out of there," Mungovan said.

He said they lied to him about his tag light, but he didn't know it at the time.

"They flashed their lights at me and they pulled up towards me and told me my tag light was out," Mungovan said.

He felt uneasy.

"She had her hand in her jacket and she said I'm going to need you to get out of the car," Mungovan said.

Instead Mungovan sped away, hearing a shot fired in his direction.

Tampa PD said the trio is responsible for a number of crimes in the area, victimizing a total of 9 people. Together, they face 22 charges.

 "Shouldn't you be more worried about your academic career or getting a job, taking care of your life -not ruining it," Morgan said.
