CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. — One suspect has been arrested, and another died due to a targeted home invasion burglary where suspects Bradley Scheuerer, 32, and Jonathon Robinson, 27, entered the victim’s home to steal equipment used to manufacture Marijuana Wax.

Deputies say marijuana wax is also known as DAB or BHO (Butane Hash Oil) and is a highly concentrated THC form. Scheuerer was a known acquaintance of the victim and recently had a falling out over the sale of the illegal marijuana substance and was recently described as acting erratic.

Deputies say a woman inside the home was lying on the couch when a suspect stood over her, advising they were there to rob them, not hurt them. A man within the master bedroom heard the commotion, and an altercation ensued between him and the suspect. This altercation left both suspect and victim severely wounded. Scheuerer was witnessed near the home before fleeing the rental van leaving Robinson behind to die.

Deputies were immediately dispatched and upon arrival located the bodies of both the victim and Robinson.

A rental van was captured on neighborhood surveillance footage at the time of the crime, like the one rented by the suspects out of St. Petersburg, where both suspects resided. The van was intended to haul the equipment used to manufacture Marijuana Wax.

Bradley Scheuerer was arrested by the St. Petersburg Police Department on Friday evening and was charged with Attempted Armed Robbery and Burglary Battery (Principle). In the event of committing a felony, two subjects were murdered.

Scheuerer remains at the Pinellas County Jail.
