Burglar breaks ito Weston hair salon

On the night of August 13, security cameras from the Hair Cuttery located at 16210 Indian Trace in Weston captured a burglar rummaging through the salon. The thief, possibly unaware of the camera’s careful gaze, wore no mask or shirt for that matter.
The half-naked man broke into the business by using a crowbar to pry open a rear door. Once inside, he set to work ransacking the front desk. He used the crowbar in an attempt to pry open a register drawer. When that failed, he slammed the drawer on the floor, forcing it open. Inside he found a pouch filled with cash.
Detectives believe he is also responsible for a similar burglary which occurred on the same night at the Hair Cuttery located at 314 Indian Trace in Weston.
He is described as a male with a large build, a dark complexion, a bald head and a short black beard. He wore black gloves, khaki shorts and black athletic shoes.

Pompano youth busted for stealing car with baby on board

Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested 15 year-old Devin Heath for his role in the theft of a Toyota Camry from a Pompano Beach 7-Eleven on July 25. A one year-old baby was in the car’s backseat at the time of the theft.
Security cameras at the gas station captured Heath as he walked up to the victim’s car, got in and drove off.
Approximately 20 minutes later deputies discovered the car abandoned in the middle of a dark roadway near 1541 N.W. 2 Ave. The vehicle was still running with the keys in the ignition. The child was still in his car seat and appeared to be unharmed.
The juvenile is now facing charges for grand theft, larceny, burglary of a conveyance and abuse of a child without bodily harm.
Heath was operating as part of a four man team. The investigation is ongoing and subsequent arrests are expected.

Thieves steal waverunners in Pompano

The owner of two Yamaha WaveRunners is sitting high and dry following a home burglary. Now, Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are releasing surveillance video of the theft in the hopes that someone can identify the suspects.
Around 1:40 a.m. Aug. 10, two males tried to remove a trailer with the personal watercrafts from a Pompano Beach home at 1385 S.W. Fourth Terrace. As they were detaching the trailer, a neighbor came out of her home to retrieve something from her vehicle and that commotion spooked the thieves. The two left in their white cargo van but returned a short while later.
On their second try, the criminal duo was able to roll the trailer with the black and silver WaveRunners into the street and connect it to their idling van.
Both males wore pants, gloves and long-sleeved hoodies in an attempt to disguise their identities. One suspect had a large bolt-cutter.

Ex-sheriff, state rep, former mayor's son vie for House seat

A former sheriff, a state representative and the son of a former Jacksonville mayor are the top candidates to replace Republican Congressman Ander Crenshaw, a longtime Florida political fixture retiring after eight terms.
Former Jacksonville Sheriff John Rutherford, state Rep. Lake Ray, and Hans Tanzler III, a corporate tax lawyer and former federal prosecutor who has never run for office, are seeking to replace Crenshaw. He was first elected to office as a state representative in 1972 and in 1992 was the first Republican elected as Senate president.
The winner of the Aug. 30 Republican primary is a lock to represent the firmly GOP district that covers parts of Duval, St. John's and Nassau counties. The victor will also be one of at least seven new Florida House members due to incumbents retiring or seeking other political pursuits in what is one the liveliest congressional election years the state has seen.
The candidates don't disagree much on policy. The differences are in tone and experience.
Rutherford says his 12 years as sheriff and 41 years in law enforcement make him prepared to handle national security issues. He points to working with the Department of Homeland Security on investigations and security planning. He also started a program in which his department could begin deportation proceedings against immigrants in the country illegally if they've committed crimes. He said that resulted in the deportation of nearly 2,300 people in Duval County since 2008.
He also represented the Florida Sheriff's Association before the Legislature, which he said taught him how to compromise.
"The beautiful thing about being sheriff, you're not a Republican, you're not a Democrat. You're just a sheriff for the people," he said. "I'm not an ideologue. I'm not going to let perfect get in the way of good. That's something I learned in Tallahassee: It's always about relationships."
Ray was a Jacksonville city councilman before winning a House seat in 2008. Many of the bills he's passed focused on economic expansion through expanded transportation, particularly ports. He noted that many have received bipartisan support and that he worked with colleagues from both parties from the beginning of the process.
"I didn't have to do that, but I worked with each one of them so they knew what it was I was trying to do and I had their confidence," he said. "It's not about a party, it's not about individuals, it's about how we get together and make it work."
Tanzler has presented a John Wayne-like image, talking tough and saying he'll go to war with liberals. In one ad, he rides up on a horse with a cowboy hat, a holstered rifle and the sound of a whip cracking. He tells President Barack Obama "and his gang" to "get out of our town."
"I've never run for office before. I tend to fit the definition of a conservative outsider," Tanzler said. "Some of the ads show that in spades."

Coast Guard, local agencies look for missing Florida boater

The search is on for a man who apparently fell from a boat in the Florida Panhandle.
The U.S. Coast Guard says it received a report late Wednesday that 31-year-old Mitchel Overcash fell off a boat near the Navarre Bridge in the Navarre Sound.
The area is east of Pensacola in Florida's Panhandle.
In addition to the Coast Guard, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and local fire departments are searching for Overcash.
No further details were immediately available.

Bank robber who disguised himself as woman captured

Authorities in Florida have captured a man who police say had disguised himself as a woman before robbing a New Orleans bank.
The FBI said in a news release that 22-year-old Dwayne A. Winans, also known as "Butter," was arrested Tuesday night at a bus station in Jacksonville.
Investigators say Winans wore a long black wig, heavy make-up and female attire when he entered a Fidelity Bank on Aug. 4 and gave a teller a note demanding money. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, Winans fled and jumped into a getaway car.
Authorities say Winans committed a carjacking in New Orleans a week later.
It is unclear whether Winans has an attorney as well as what charges he is facing.

Police identify man found dead in burning car

Authorities in central Florida have identified a man who was found dead in a burning vehicle.
St. Cloud police Sgt. Denise Roberts tells news outlets that 32-year-old Rene Tirado Jr.'s death was a homicide.
Tirado, who lived in Kissimmee, was found dead inside his burning car Sunday night.

Burglar targets ATM for cash

Just after 12:50 a.m. on August 3, surveillance cameras captured a suspect as he literally broke through a wall and into a Fast Payday Loans in West Park. The thief cut his way into the business through a wall adjacent to an ATM. At approximately 3 a.m., the suspect finally crawled into the business.
Once inside, he tried to cut into and pry open the sides of the ATM. He eventually resorted to using a concrete parking block to hit the ATM machine from the back of the machine and dislodge the money dispenser.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact BSO Det. Jessica Abrams at 954-985-1953. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org. Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
Police have not said how he was killed.
Anyone with information is asked to call the St. Cloud Police Department at 407-891-6700 or Crimeline at 800-423-8477.

Ex-Miami Congressman Garcia hopes to make comeback

The Miami-area congressional seat held by Republican Carlos Curbelo is one of the nation's most competitive — it's pingponged between the GOP and the Democrats the last three elections.
Now Joe Garcia, who held the seat from 2013 to 2015, and Annette Taddeo, who unsuccessfully ran for lieutenant governor in 2014, are running a tight race in the Aug. 30 Democratic primary for a chance to challenge Curbelo in November. The race is key nationally to help give Democrats a shot at retaking the House — they need to pick up 30 seats.
Taddeo has attacked Garcia over a 2010 scandal in which a former Garcia campaign aide illegally financed a ringer tea party candidate in an attempt to siphon votes from Garcia's GOP rival, David Rivera. Despite the ringer, Rivera won in 2010. But Garcia beat him in 2012 as Rivera's campaign got caught financing a ringer Democratic candidate to attack Garcia in that primary.
Curbelo, a former school board member, beat Garcia 51 to 49 percent in 2014. But there are 9,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans in the district, which covers Miami's western and southern suburbs, the Florida Keys and a large chunk of the Everglades.
"This is a district that wants to turn the page and not go back to the scandal-ridden politicians who will do anything to get elected," said Taddeo, 49, who was the Miami-Dade County Democratic Party chair when Charlie Crist selected her as his running mate two years ago. They lost to Gov. Rick Scott. She also lost two earlier races: a 2008 bid against U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and for county commission two years later. She had raised $1.4 million through her last federal report on Aug. 10.
Garcia, 53, said he considers Taddeo a friend and is saddened she attacked his record. He said he is stressing his record from his previous stint in Congress, including signing up people in his district for health coverage under Obamacare and introducing a bipartisan immigration bill.
"I am convinced Hillary Clinton will be our next president, and she will need people who get in there and get things done," said Garcia, a past president of the Cuban American National Foundation. He had raised $595,000 through Aug. 10.
Curbelo, for his part, separated himself in March from eventual presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying the billionaire businessman reminds him of Hugo Chavez. That jab was a stinging insult among Miami's Cuban-American Republicans, who saw the late Venezuelan president as a communist strongman and Fidel Castro ally who drove his country into economic ruin. He said he will not vote for Clinton, either, saying he will vote for a third-party or write-in candidate.
Curbelo, who has no primary opponent, has raised $2.8 million for the general election. He said he will run as someone willing to work across the aisle.
"You can send flamethrowers to Washington or you can send problem-solvers," said Curbelo, 36. "I want to bring people together. That's something that is sorely lacking in this country."
