Staff report

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Armando Corzo, 43, of Ft. White, was arrested early Sunday morning after allegedly kicking in the door and entering a home on Parker Road.

At about 1:34 a.m. Sunday morning, an Alachua County Sheriff’s (ASO) Deputy responded to the home after the 82-year-old victim called to say that someone had kicked in her door, broken the door frame, and entered the home. After she confronted him, he reportedly ran out of the home. The victim reportedly captured Corzo on her Ring camera.

ASO K-9 teams tracked Corzo across the street to the Family Church and located him there. When deputies tried to search Corzo, he reportedly pulled away and also dropped to the ground multiple times while deputies were transporting him.

Corzo has been charged with unarmed burglary of an occupied dwelling, property damage over $200, loitering/prowling, and resisting arrest without violence. Corzo has seven felony convictions (one violent) and 12 misdemeanor convictions (none violent) and served a three-year state prison sentence for aggravated animal cruelty charges from Monroe County. He was released from prison in December 2022. Judge Donna Keim set bail at $40,000.

  • Too bad she didn’t shoot him dead. At least, outside of the city of Gainesville, the county abides by the state given Stand Your Ground law.

  • It’s funny how these POSs always seem to resurface and break into homes and never are confronted by a armed homeowner/renter. Tables need to be turned. He’s probably only in Ft. White to try and escape his past and start a new crime spree. Ft. White is not that populated and ready to slip around.

  • Are you sure he’s not a cartel drug lord just hiding out in Ft White?
