sfl-flduh-cigarette-thief-20141021-001The 43-year-old victim was in a parking lot at 5137 14th St. W. in Bradenton at 9:11 a.m. when Shaquielle Olmeda ran by and snatched a pack of cigarettes out of the victim’s hand, according to a release.

Olmeda took off running south and the victim called law enforcement. Deputies used patrol units, dogs and helicopters to set up a perimeter, and eventually found Olmeda in the east parking lot of Magic Mile Plaza, on the northwest corner of 14th Street West and 53rd Avenue West.

The victim positively identified Olmeda and the pack of cigarettes was located on his person, deputies said.

Olmeda was arrested without further incident.

 

Drunken 500-pound man couldn’t fit into patrol car

A 911 dispatcher calmly gathered details from the Deltona woman who claimed she was just attacked by her 500-pound boyfriend — a belligerent man deputies later said was simply too big to fit into a patrol car.

os-howard-hendrix-20141021“He is drunk and he is just acting crazy,” the woman said before the dispatcher asked for a description of Howard Hendrix’s clothing.

“Right now, he’s not wearing anything,” the woman said Sunday from house she rents on Jutland Street on Sunday.

“He’s nude?” the dispatcher asked.

“Yes.”

Hendrix, 45, of Apopka was in the bathroom, freshly showered and naked, when a deputy arrived.

He agreed to the officer’s request to put his clothes on.

But then Hendrix began throwing his weight around — again, a report says.

Deputies cuffed him but Hendrix resisted, refusing to walk out the house and falling to the ground, forcing a deputy to drag him out of the house. He also kicked a deputy, a report says.

“Hendrix was to large to put in a patrol vehicle,” a deputy wrote in a report.

A prisoner transport van was called in and used to take Hendrix to the Volusia County Branch Jail in Daytona Beach, said Gary Davidson, a spokesman for the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

Hendrix is accused of attacking the 42-year-old woman, including poking her in the chest, slapping her in the face and shoulder and spitting in her face.

He also punched a hole in a wall and destroyed a chair, she said in her 911 call.

Hendrix was charged with simple battery (dating violence), criminal mischief, battery on a law enforcement officer, and resisting arrest without violence.

 

Man called it “extreme shopping,” women called it ‘flashing’ October 21, 2014

Christopher Durrell Glaze told Sanford police he was “extreme shopping” after he flashed two women at the Seminole Towne Center mall last week, an arrest report states.

sfl-flduh-extreme-shopping-flashing-20141020-001Two women reported seeing Glaze, 27, exposing himself at the mall Wednesday afternoon.

The first described doing a “double take” after Glaze flashed her. As she went to report what had happened, he walked into a Victoria’s Secret store, where he encountered another woman, “pulled down the front of his pants and exposed himself completely to her,” according to the arrest report.

Police interviewed Glaze, who eventually confessed to flashing the two women, the report says.

Glaze initially told an officer he was shopping.

Asked what kind of shopping, he said “extreme shopping,” something he defined as “when you go shopping and you talk to girls and flirt,” the arrest report says

When police asked if Glaze had exposed himself, he initially said he had exposed his stomach, but later admitted that he had flashed his genitals, the report says.
He was arrested on two counts of indecent exposure of sexual organs, a misdemeanor.

Mom jailed after shooting at deadly snake

Filed under: Bizzarre,Controversy,Dangerous Nut,Guns,Shooting,WTF? — floridaduh @ 1:08 pm

A Panama City woman has been taken to jail after allegedly trying to gun down a snake on a local school campus.

april-demarcoApril Dawn DeMarco, 30, was arrested for discharging a .380-caliber handgun on the practice football field of Bay High School, 300 E. 15th St., during practice last week for the local Pop Warner football team. Demarco apparently borrowed the pistol from Miren Gregory, 31, to protect nearby children after a group of parents found a water moccasin on the field, police reported.

Coaches and parents told the children to get out of the area after finding the moccasin. Gregory told DeMarco she had a concealed carry permit and a handgun after some of the coaches tried to kill the snake by hitting it with sticks.

One parent forewarned the women that having a firearm on school grounds was against the law when DeMarco said, “I will take the blame,” the parent told police.

The children were about 20 to 50 yards away when Demarco took one shot at the snake, missing wide.

Attempts to contact DeMarco Wednesday were unsuccessful.

DeMarco told police she had the gun on school grounds and shot it there to protect the children, herself being a parent, police reported. However, discharging a firearm on school grounds is a felony. DeMarco was arrested Monday for discharging a firearm on school property and possession of a firearm on school property.

State law also prohibits people with concealed weapons permits from bringing weapons on a school campus during any event not related to those weapons. Gregory was arrested Tuesday on charges of carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a firearm on school property.

Police reports contain no word on the fate of the snake.

Filed under: Bizzarre,Dumb,Florida Nut,Interesting,Really Dumb,Robbers,Weird,WTF? — floridaduh @ 1:06 pm

Police have arrested a man they say destroyed toilets in fast-food restaurants across the city as part of a metal recycling scheme.

sfl-flduh-toilet-parts-fast-food-20141017-001Brian Rinda, 28, allegedly stole flushing handles and pipes, then traded the brass parts for between $36 and $40 at the county recycling center. Sometimes he would cause as much as $1,000 in damage when he broke the toilets, according to St. Petersburg police reports.

Authorities suspect Rinda in thefts from numerous locations in St. Petersburg, including Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Burger King, Publix, Subway, Cracker Barrel and Bob Evans restaurants and Albert Whitted Park.

Detectives used records from the recycling center and surveillance video from the restaurants to identify Rinda, police said. He faces nine counts of theft.

 

Crooked Cop Let Woman Off In Exchange For Oral Sex: Police October 16, 2014

A Florida sheriff’s deputy faces felony charges after officials said he accepted oral sex from a woman in exchange for not arresting her.

Ted Arboleda, 32, was arrested Monday. He is charged with unlawful compensation or reward for official behavior.

n-TED-ARBOLEDA-large“It’s discouraging and demoralizing to the 99.9 percent of the men and women that work so hard and so diligently [for the Broward Sheriff's Office],” Sheriff Scott Israel. “We’re not going to tolerate this kind of behavior.”

The charges stem from an incident that occurred in July 2013, investigators with the Broward County Sheriff’s Public Corruption Unit said. Arboleda allegedly spoke with a woman at a Dania Beach gas station and learned that she did not have a valid Florida driver’s license. The woman was also found in possession of marijuana and a bottle of prescription medication.

The woman, who was on probation, reportedly offered the Arboleda money not to arrest her. Officials said he refused the bribe, but accompanied the woman to her home. The woman let him inside the home and offered him oral sex.

“She said something to the effect of, ‘I know you won’t take the money, but I’ll perform oral sex,'” Israel said.

The Sun-Sentinel reports:

Arboleda told the woman he had never done anything like that before but agreed to the sex act, according to the arrest warrant. After the sex act, Arboleda told the woman “he could not believe he agreed” and told her not to tell anyone. He left without arresting her.

Police began investigating the case after the woman’s boyfriend reported what happened. Officials said they suspect this isn’t the first time Arboleda’s done this.

He’s been suspended without pay.
