Father with eyelid tattoos wanted for stealing bank cards with son, deputies say

Father with eyelid tattoos wanted for stealing bank cards with son, deputies say

One half of a father-son duo is still on the run after Volusia County deputies say they broke into a car and racked up over $5,000 using stolen bank cards. Anthony  Medina, 19 and William Clark, 44, the one with the tattooed eyelids, are facing several charges including fraudulent use of person ID and fraudulent use of a credit card. Deputies say the two broke into a parked car at the DeBary Public Library on April 10 and made off with the victim’s bank cards and driver’s license. When the owner realized what happened, he checked his card activity and discovered $5,361 in charges.  The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office sent this press release with details:  Det. Cameron Tucker started tracing those steps, traveling to a Chevron, a Racetrac, a Sunoco, a Walmart, AAA Gun & Pawn, Value Pawn & Jewelry, Cash America, and another Chevron. The purchases included cartons of cigarettes, a DVD player, a laptop and gold chain necklaces.  One employee told Det. Tucker she remembered the transaction, and when the customer took off his sunglasses in the store, she noticed his eyelid tattoos.  Det. Tucker dusted a glass case and mirror at one of the pawn shops for fingerprints, and he obtained video from all the stores on the suspects’ shopping list. After compiling footage of the suspect vehicle and the list of all the stores they visited to make purchases that day, Det. Tucker contacted the Volusia County Crime Center for a search of the License Plate Reader system. Analysts at the Crime Center identified a 2004 Cadillac with Florida tag 614-8UR that had a unique sticker and antenna matching the suspect vehicle’s. Medina was arrested on Monday and was released on $10,000 bail. Clark is still at large.

VIDEO: K9 gives kisses to suspect hiding in swamp from Florida deputies 

A suspect hiding from Pasco County deputies in a swamp after a high-speed chase was arrested covered in slobbery kisses instead of a bite from their K9.  The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office sent out an alert to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office after they say Paul Daniel Smith, 34, resisted arrest and battered a deputy. He took off in a Ford F150.  Deputy Marc Lane spotted the vehicle on US 41 and went after him.  Smith eventually stopped and ran into a heavily wooded, swampy area. With the help of their K9 bloodhound Knox, deputies tracked Smith down through the swamp, finding him stuck in thick mud with water up to his neck. “Stop resisting,” the deputies can be heard saying in the video posted to Facebook. (Facebook) As they try to get Smith out of the mud, instead of biting, Knox covers his face in wet, doggy kisses. Knox’s specialty is finding people, from missing children to wanted men. Smith is facing several charges including aggravated assault and violation of probation. As for Knox, he’s been rewarded for a job well done with his favorite treat: cheese.

Orlando police looking for man who attacked another at Semoran shopping center

Have you seen this guy? Orlando police need your help in identifying the man who is suspected of attacking an elderly gentleman in the parking lot of the Lake Fredrica Shopping Center on Semoran Boulevard and Lake Margaret Drive. Witnesses say the suspect, a man in his 20s, stood in front of the car of the victim and blocked him from being able to drive away. When the elderly victim got out to confront him, the suspect punched him once, knocking the victim out cold. 'One punch that was all it took,” witness Jennifer Pola tells WKMG. “He hit him dead in the temple, boom. He was out for at least two minutes.' (tweet) When police arrived, they found the victim, a man in his 60s, on the ground and bleeding.  Pola says the attack was completely unprovoked.  Several witnesses went after the suspect but he got in a vehicle and drove away. They managed to snap a clear photo of him before he took off. Anyone with information is asked to call Orlando police or Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS.

Lawmakers press for more publicity on harassment settlements

The head of the Capitol Hill office which deals with workplace harassment cases said Wednesday that she still does not have the power to reveal the names of lawmakers who used taxpayer dollars to pay legal harassment settlements, drawing sharp rebukes from members of both parties on a House spending panel, as lawmakers in both the House and Senate expressed growing frustration about the matter.

“The transparency issue is revolting,” said Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL). “It is absolutely unacceptable that we continue to let members who abuse their employees hide.”
