KEY LARGO, Fla. – Two men were arrested Thursday night after they were found to be staying in a Key Largo home without the owner’s permission, authorities said.

According to Monroe County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Adam Linhardt, deputies were called to a residence on Jolly Roger Drive around 8 p.m. regarding a burglary.

Upon arrival, deputies found John Thomas Wehrle, 63, of Cape Coral, and Charles Norton Huston, 60, of Grand Junction, Colorado, inside the home.

According to Linhardt, the victim, who was out of town, stated she knows Wehrle but did not give him nor anyone else permission to be in her residence.

Deputies said both men stated they gained entry through an unlocked door after they “assumed” they could be there.

Wehrle and Huston were both taken to jail and charged with burglary and trespassing.
