Sign off

Vandalism. A towing company is seeking to press charges after one of its signs was torn down by a group of teens near a local gym.

One of the company's employees reported the incident to police, saying he caught the teens "horsing around" with the sign. He showed police a video of their actions, according to a police report, but the video didn't show the teens taking down the sign from the tree it had been posted on. Police were able to identify one of the teens, who said they found the sign and decided to play around with it. 

The teen said he didn't know any of the others in the video. The cost of the damage is $12.

Petit theft. A 23-year-old Ormond Beach woman told police she stole $51.83 worth of items from a local supermarket because she "wanted to have something on Valentine's Day," according to a police report.

The woman hid acrylic nails, perfume and hair spray in her purse before leaving the store. She told officers it was a "stupid mistake." Police issued her a notice to appear in court.

Drunk person. A local chain restaurant declined to press charges on a woman who racked up a $77 bill in alcoholic drinks and became intoxicated. 

The restaurant manager told police that the woman had to be helped out of the bathroom by a waitress and brought over to a table, where the reporting officer found her with her head and arms on the surface, appearing to be asleep, according to the incident report. Police decided to transport her to the hospital, but while being transported, she attempted to bite a paramedic. 

A spit sock was placed over her head, according to police. The woman was turned over to hospital staff.
