3 Men Arrested For Selling Stolen Appliances





The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has arrested three individuals for selling stolen appliances from newly constructed homes. The thefts took place within Hillsborough, Marion, Hernando, Manatee and Sarasota Counties.

Through investigative means, detectives confirmed that Alberto Gomez Sardinas, 32, Jose Hernandez O’Relly, 36, and Yansiel Consuegra, 24, were obtaining items stolen from homes under construction and reselling them for a profit. The sales were occurring in a residential house at 819 S. Kings Ave, Brandon, as well as a storage facility at 6207 W. Hillsborough Av, in Tampa.

Detectives learned that Gomez Sardinas was also publishing the stolen appliances for sale online. During the investigation, detectives discovered that O’Relly’s 2022 Dodge 2500 Big Horn vehicle had been re-vinned, and believed to be an unreported stolen vehicle.

Detectives recovered more than $100,000 worth of stolen property.

Gomez Sardinas has been charged with four counts of dealing in stolen property, unlawful use of two-way communications device; and dealing in stolen property by use of the internet.

Hernandez O’Relly has been charged with four counts of dealing in stolen property; and grand theft in the third degree.

Yansiel Consuegra has been charged with dealing in stolen property.

More charges might be forthcoming.

This is an active investigation; any updates will come from the Public Affairs Office.
