Dylan Roundtree,18, faces three counts of felony dealing in stolen property and other charges, according to an arrest report.

Record show he was released from the Pinellas County Jail after posting $45,000 bond.

Deputies say Roundtree admitted to selling a pair of stolen Bose 4.2 series woodgrain speakers to the Pawn Max on Tampa Road in Oldsmar on March 7.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by Patch, a 17-year-old associate of Dylan Roundtree stole the speakers from the home the associate shares with his father. 

Dylan Roundtree drove the pair to the pawn shop, then went inside and sold the speakers to the pawn shop because the associate is a minor. Dylan Roundtree received $100 from the pawn shop, which he shared with the teen.

Dylan Roundtree admitted that he knew the property sold to the pawn shop was stolen, according to the arrest affidavit.

Dylan Roundtree was arrested on March 17 and charged with three counts of felony dealing in stolen property and three counts of misdemeanor false verification of ownership. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail and then released after posting $45,000 bond.

This is not the first brush with the law for members of the Roundtree family. Dylan's father and WTSP TV news anchor, Reginald Roundtree, 54, was arrested by Clearwater Police on a DUI charge in December of 2005. He was driving nearly twice the 45 mph speed limit on the Courtney Campbell Causeway, according the Tampa Bay Times, who reported Roundtree pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of reckless driving.
