It’s a pretty quiet week for our crime report but we cover two robberies with details along with the highly publicized one at Bed Bath & Beyond. We also have incidents involving drugs, fraud, assault and battery, and we’ll see what else. We still have no update on the burglary in Arbor Woods.
26-year-old [Omitted] was arrested for robbery by Boca PD. The [West Boca] resident allegedly demanded money from his victim and then punched him in the face. The victim, a 27-year-old male student, started to take money out of his wallet when [Omitted] grabbed it and rode off on his bicycle.
He is charged with robbery. We don’t see any other criminal cases against [Omitted].
[Omitted] previously appeared in one of our March reports, and has a lengthy history. In this incident he was at the Marathon gas station on Federal Highway and asked a male customer for spare change. When the customer said no [Omitted] confronted him and allegedly said he had “a piece.” A fight ensued and ended quickly with the victim holding [Omitted] down. [Omitted] hit the victim in the head while he was being held down.
Unfortunately the gas station security cameras were not working. Nevertheless Boca PD arrested [Omitted] and charged him with robbery and battery.
[Omitted], a 25-year-old groundskeeper who lives in East Boca, was arrested at the beach in Delray. Delray PD found him and another guy on one of the lifeguard towers after midnight. [Omitted] had “no pants or underwear on” and was urinating off the tower onto the beach.
He was uncooperative, calling the police officers “pussies” and “cunts” among other issues. Unusually the identity of the officers is hidden in the police affidavit. They charged him with trespassing in the lifeguard tower, disorderly intoxication, indecent exposure, and resisting without violence.
[Omitted] had a DUI in 2018 with a year of probation, so he may have additional troubles with that.
[Omitted] (21) lives in the [Omitted] Apartments [in West Boca]. She was arrested at [Omitted] in Town Center for retail theft along with a felony charge of organized fraud.
The probable cause affidavit indicates two different crimes. In the first she had a pattern of buying an item and returning with receipt, taking the same item off the shelf and then returning it. She had done this a few times.
On the date of her arrest she was preparing to do a return and while doing so also took several items and hid them in her purse.
We see no prior cases for her.
[Omitted] (21) of East Boca was arrested on a warrant from Broward for failing to cooperate with probation. He has had a string of marijuana arrests over the past few years including one arrest in West Boca in 2016 where he was also charged with unlawful possession of a concealed firearm. Those charges were dropped. In 2017 he had an arrest in Broward for punching his girlfriend which knocked her out and required staples. He got probation for that as well.
So far it seems like he keeps getting breaks. though we think marijuana should be legal anyway. The probation violation may create bigger problems for him.
[Couple cases omitted]
[Omitted] (56) of [Central Boca] was arrested for domestic battery and felony possession of Xanax. Police were called on a domestic dispute, determined that she was the aggressor in an argument with her husband and arrested her for battery. During a search she produced a Xanax pill from her pocket and was unable to produce a prescription. We see no prior cases for her.
[Omitted] (28) of Watergate Estates was arrested at West Boca Medical Center. She was visiting a patient, began arguing with the patient and then refused to leave. She did go down to the lobby where she argued with security guards and threatened the deputy.
She was arrested for trespass, resisting without violence, and assault. We see an extensive history dating back to 2007, including four different felony cases.
[Omitted] (36) was arrested for battery on deputies at her home in Southwind Lakes. Her ex-husband was trying to drop the kids off but she was allegedly drunk so he called PBSO.
During the encounter she lunged at her ex multiple times while police were in the way, and thus was charged with battery on those deputies.
We see no other cases for her.
[Omitted] (31) of East Boca was arrested for domestic battery after hitting her boyfriend. They had been out drinking and the incident occurred on the way home around 3 am.
Upon investigating further Boca PD found that [Omitted] had left her 8-year-old child home alone while she was out drinking for an extended period, so they added a charge of child neglect. We see no other cases for her.
[More cases omitted]
