November 03, 2010 - Against the wall

On Oct. 27, at 10:20 p.m., Brandon deputies responded to the 2200 block of Ironwood for a possible breaking and entering in progress. The complainant is an employee of the mobile home park and said he saw a silhouette in the bedroom window of a bank-owned home. The deputy and the complainant could both hear music inside the home and the complainant put the key in the lock to open the door, making some noise. The deputy instructed the complainant to go back to his car and wait. He then heard glass breaking from inside and shouting. The deputy went around back of the home and observed a white male, brown hair, approximately 6 feet tall, running away from the home. Two more white males fled from the front of the home and the deputy caught a white female who was running. The woman smelled of intoxicants and a preliminary breathalyzer test showed she had a blood alcohol content of .085 percent. She told the deputy she was drinking with the guys in the residence and one of them had said it was his house and they could all hang out there and party. She said they all made entry into the home through a window. She said while they were in the house, the guys started hitting the walls and damaging the inside of the home. The female was issued three misdemeanor citations, person under 21— unlawful purchase, use, consumption, trespassing, and disorderly person. The case is open.


On Oct. 28, a Brandon deputy responded to the 4300 block of Hazel Street for a home invasion report. The complainant said she went to church around 11 a.m. Oct. 24 and when she returned at 2 p.m., she found her trailer smashed and smelling of urine inside. She said nothing was missing and she cleaned and aired out the house. There was a pry mark on the door jamb, but the door and jamb was intact and the door was lockable. When asked why she waited to file a report, she said she was scared. The case is closed.


On Oct. 29, at about 7:13 p.m., a Brandon deputy responded to the 3700 block of Juniper for a report of several people in the street with baseball bats. Upon arrival, the deputy met with the complainant, who said police were at his home earlier when he and his family had trouble with the neighbors and his wife was taken to the hospital. He said he called 9-1-1 this time when he heard someone yelling and looked out the window and saw three men in the shadows with what he thought were baseball bats, yelling for him and his son to come out. The deputy met in the street a man who said he came to the mobile home park because his girlfriend told him she was in a verbal altercation earlier with a neighbor. The man told the deputy "I know I should not have come over here causing trouble." He admitted yelling at the complainant's residence for bothering his girlfriend. He said he was alone and there were no bats. The man was issued a misdemeanor citation for disorderly person.
