October 20, 2010 - Rude awakening

On Oct. 12, a Brandon deputy responded to a report of an attempted breaking and entering in the 200 block of E. Glass Road. The complainant said he woke up to make coffee and realized his home was unusually cold. He saw the glass sliding door wall was ajar and a kitchen window was open all the way, with the screen laying on the deck. Nothing was missing and he doesn't believe they entered the home because the floors, which he cleaned the day before, were still clean.

Broken

On Oct. 13, a Brandon deputy responded to the 4400 block of Wildwood Loop for a report of malicious destruction of property. Someone broke the windshield on the complainant's vehicle.

Embezzlement

On Oct. 13, a Brandon deputy responded to a group home in the 200 block of S. Hadley Road for a report of embezzlement. The complainant is the manager of the group home and said the former manager embezzled $4,197.16 from the residents' account. The suspect was demoted to assistant manager in late September and has since quit. When she was questioned by the new manager, the suspect said she lost the residents funds book that documented accounts. Checks were cashed from a bank in Romeo but were never placed in the residents' accounts.

Two for one

On Oct. 14, at about 4 a.m., a Brandon deputy on patrol stopped a vehicle that was doing 71 mph in a 50 mph zone. The driver had a valid misdemeanor warrant out of Pontiac. He was cited for speeding and turned over to the Pontiac Police Department on the warrant.

Larceny

On Oct. 16, a Brandon deputy responded to the 5700 block of Hummer Lake Road for a report of larceny. The complainant said someone stole two generators, a shop vacuum, and a riding mower from her vacant home sometime between the end of July and mid-September. The generator was taken from inside the home and the rest of the property was taken from a pole barn. There were no signs of forced entry.
