A MOTHER AND HER ADOPTED SON WERE BOTH ARRESTED TUESDAY AFTER THEY WERE CAUGHT IN THE ACT OF BURGLARIZING A VACANT PORT CHARLOTTE HOME.  DEPUTIES SAY CHARLOTTE COUNTY SHERIFF’S DETECTIVE KEN ROGUSKA DROVE BY A HOME AT 1263 HARBOR DRIVE THAT HE KNEW WAS VACANT AND SAW A FORD PICK-UP IN THE DRIVEWAY.  HE DROVE UP AND SAW 42 YEAR OLD LORIE MCDANIEL AND 34 YEAR OLD HENRY BRITT, BOTH OF PORT CHARLOTTE, PUSHING AN ELECTRIC RANGE-STOVE OUT THE FRONT DOOR.  MCDANIEL ASKED IF SHE COULD CALL HER HUSBAND TO TELL HIM WHAT HAPPENED, AND WHEN SHE HANDED THE PHONE TO ROGUSKA, HE SAID HE DIDN’T KNOW WHY HIS WIFE WAS THERE AS THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE LOOKING FOR HOUSES.  MCDANIEL AND BRITT WERE BOTH TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AT THAT TIME; EACH WAS CHARGED WITH FELONY BURGLARY AND GRAND THEFT.  MCDANIEL MADE BOND WHILE BRITT REMAINS IN THE CHARLOTTE COUNTY JAIL ON $7500 DOLLARS BOND.
