PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP)Detectives have arrested a southwest Florida man they say burglarized a home shared by three Tampa Bay Rays players during spring training in March.

Authorities in Port Charlotte charged 22-year-old Steven Charles Vaughn with breaking into a rented house shared by Evan Longoria, David Price and Reid Brignac.

Vaughn allegedly took 60,000 worth of items, including electronics, watches, jewelry and an AK-47-type rifle. Deputies say the players were participating in a spring training game at the time.

Vaughn was arrested Wednesday in the county jail, where he was being held on unrelated charges. Hes charged with armed burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, grand theft and dealing in stolen property.

It was not clear if he had an attorney.
