Sasso also confessed to stealing a motorcycle around September 2 at 33 East Camino Real. Anthony Sasso also admitted to committing a burglary in Jupiter with his brother Richard, in which they stole a number of firearms, including a .22 caliber rifle found during the execution of the search warrant.
Detectives spoke with Richard Sasso Jr., who also confessed to the burglary in Jupiter. Sasso told detectives they traded most of the firearms for marijuana.
