October 27, 2010 - Gas and go

On Oct. 19, a Brandon deputy responded to the 3600 block of Dartmouth for malicious destruction of property to a vehicle. The complainant said overnight someone removed the gas cap from his truck and drilled a hole into the bottom of the gas tank that he had just filled with $60 of gas.

Boxer KO

On Oct. 19, at 3:18 p.m., a Brandon deputy responded to the 3600 block of Pinoak for an animal complaint. The complainant said a brown/black boxer dog attacked him while he was picking tomatoes in his garden. He did not know who the dog belonged to. The dog growled and he felt threatened, so he fired into the ground a round from the .38 pistol he is licensed to carry in order to scare the dog away. Upon arrival of the deputy, the dog was in the street, acting skittish. The dog's owner came out and tried to capture the dog, who wouldn't obey. The owner finally coaxed the dog into his home. The owner said he knows the dog is a problem and he will be getting rid of him as soon as possible. Deputies had a complaint about the same dog two days prior, when the animal tried to attack a woman in a wheelchair who had her small dog on a leash. Many other neighbors said they are fed up with the dog constantly getting loose and terrorizing the neighborhood. The man was issued a misdemeanor citation for nuisance dog at-large.

Sick skunk

On Oct. 19, at 5:30 p.m., a Brandon deputy responded to the 1800 block of N. Baldwin Road for a sick skunk. The deputy observed the skunk wandering around the yard of the home in daylight and the animal did not respond or retreat in the presence of humans. The deputy euthanized the skunk.
