Connect Crime: Who needs a bridge?


May 09, 2016

    WHO NEEDS A BRIDGE? -– A man who disregarded “bridge closed” signs and huge mounds of dirt placed to stop drivers from crossing the bridge on Cypress Lake Road at the Gateway Pond House fled from deputies who were at the site to enforce the “bridge closed” signs. He tried tossing a hard hat into the woods, but it bounced off the bridge railing. He then fell in a hole onto jagged rocks, refused to obey deputies’ orders to stop, and fled under the bridge and crossed the creek. Information on the hat identified him, and after speaking with three other occupants of the car, police allowed them to leave. Warrants were issued for the driver who fled.

    THIS WEEK’S SHOPLIFTERS -- A man was arrested for shoplifting $38 worth of groceries and $24 worth of car parts and accessories from Wal-Mart Supercenter, and in a later incident, another person was arrested for shoplifting a pair of $15 flip flops.

    DUMP THAT CHUMP -– A South College Street woman said her boyfriend grabbed her and head-butted her. She was given information on taking out warrants.

    ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER SCAM ATTEMPT -– A Busby Road woman reported a scam attempt by callers claiming to be the IRS and demanding the victim’s Social Security Number, threatening arrest if they did not send money. The IRS doesn’t do this, and if you get a call like this, check with the sheriff’s department or police.
