The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office made an arrest Wednesday in the burglary of the spring home shared by Evan Longoria, David Price and Reid Brignac, the St. Petersburg Times reports.

22-year-old Steven Charles Vaughn, who was already in the Charlotte County Jail on unrelated charges, was arrested and charged with armed burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, grand theft and dealing in stolen property.

None of the stolen property, which included an AK-47 assault rifle belonging to Longoria, was recovered.

“None of the stuff was returned,” Longoria said. “But closure is closure, and we’re happy about that.”

Jewelry, a 60-inch television and three iPads were also taken in the burglary.  Several additional arrests are expected in the case.

Dodgers sign OF Jason Heyward to minor league deal

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers signed outfielder Jason Heyward to a minor league deal and invited him to spring training.

The 33-year-old was released by the Chicago Cubs earlier this offseason.

Heyward, who was injured at times last season, put up the worst offensive numbers of his career, batting .204 and with 10 RBIs and one home run in 137 plate appearances. However, he’s a valuable defender in the outfield.

The deal reunites Heyward with first baseman Freddie Freeman. They came up through the Atlanta Braves system and have remained friends ever since.

Heyward was a leader in the Cubs’ clubhouse, helping them win the 2016 World Series.
