We previously reported on the arrest of Troy Parry for felony battery. A second young man with ties to Parry was arrested hours later, also for felony battery.
Keegan Dix (19) was arrested late on Wednesday by deputies and booked just after midnight. Court records show the alleged offense took place on Saturday, October 25th, the same day of Parry’s alleged battery. The cases followed the same court, both filed the same day (the 27th) with warrants issued.
Dix’ reported address is in the Bella Vista at Boca Del Mar apartments, on the east side of Powerline across from Olive Garden. Our research indicates he went to Boca High and was an outstanding youth hockey player.
Our research also shows this is his third felony arrest and his 11th case in our courts starting in 2011. In May last year he was arrested for misdemeanor battery. The next day he was arrested for burglary and grand theft. Those charges were eventually dropped by prosecutors.
The next month he was arrested on a felony drug charge, for ecstasy or MDMA after testing positive with an MDMA test kit, and the case was resolved with “adjudication withheld” and probation. Two months after that arrest he was charged with (but not arrested for) underage possession of alcohol, a charge that was also dropped by prosecutors. And in April of this year he was ticketed for littering, a case that’s still open.
He also had a few traffic tickets along the way. The latest was for an open container in June of last year. Court records indicate his license was suspended in July for not responding to the ticket and the case was sent to a collection agency in October.
We remind our readers that all arrestees are innocent at this stage. And with young people it can be challenging to spot signs they might develop a disregard for following the law.

We have several incidents to report his week. We broke them up into two stories. This is the first. For the second please see: A Questionable Assault.
Perhaps the most notable is Nick Lieske (left, 19), arrested Monday by Boca PD for “Felony Fleeing and Eluding.” As the officer described it, he saw a red motorcycle with no plate. When he attempted to pull it over the rider made a few U-turns to avoid him. On the third U-turn the bike went down and Lieske, an Olympic Heights graduate, was apprehended. He was also charged with a few traffic tickets. Lieske’s reported address is in Saddlebrook, just east of 441 and south of Boca Gardens.
On the right in the top set of mugshots is Stephen D’Angelo (47), accused of marijuana possession on Monday evening. He had a prior marijuana arrest in 2010. We’ve met Mr. D’Angelo and like him. We’ve said many times in the past that the drug war is a failure and a waste of time. This is a great example.
Kenneth Plevy (above left, 60) was arrested Wednesday for DUI. A business consultant, his reported address is in the Polo Club development northeast of Jog and Clint Moore.
Above center is Emmanuel Padilla (27), accused of DUI on and booked Tuesday morning. He has had a couple felony cases in the court system from incidents in 2008 and 2010 involving grand theft and burglary. Back then he allegedly burglarized one of the high-end homes (8 beds, 11.5 baths, 18,000 square feet on 6 ½ acres) in the Boca Grande development behind Target. At least he went big. He wasn’t caught for that one until later when his DNA (from a subsequent arrest) matched blood found at the scene. Padilla’s reported address is in the Sandalfoot trailers.
Darren Melendez (above right, 22) was arrested last night in Lake Worth. Allegedly he was speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, and nearly caused a crash before being stopped by a deputy. While being placed in custody for DUI, the deputy allegedly found cocaine and a Xanax on him. Melendez is reported to live off Dixie near Yamato.
We have more cases to report but we’ll cover them in a separate story.
Golf communities in West Boca are looking to add more homes. In January we wrote about the ongoing effort in Boca Del Mar to build on the defunct Mizner Trail golf course. Now there are two more in the works.
Boca Greens, on the west side of 441 between Glades and Yamato, is working with the county to try to add over sixty townhouses on roughly twenty acres of land currently used for their golf course and for other green space.
At the same time Boca Dunes (west side of Lyons, north of SW 18th) has a bigger plan to build nearly 250 townhouses on their golf course.
If all of these go through, in addition to the 237 units at the Sinai Residences on the Jewish Federation campus (south side of Glades at between 441 and Lyons) and 120 units in Akoya at Boca West, it would mean well over 1000 new homes in West Boca Raton.
Boca Greens on map:
There has been some public concern about all of this building, such as United Boca Del Mar against the Mizner Trail project, but the West Boca Community Council has so far been pretty quiet about it. Typical objections might relate to traffic, especially on Glades Road, Lyons Road the related intersections, and that most of these units might push down area home values.
Boca Dunes on map:
At the same time the proposals could be viewed as a positive sign of health for the West Boca economy and a boost to local businesses.
