This week on Cops Corner...
Road rage implication
10:31 p.m. — 100 block of Cloverdale Court
Information. Police advised a 72-year-old Ormond Beach man against implying he was a police officer to a 20-year-old woman who was allegedly driving recklessly in his neighborhood.
The young woman called police to inform that, after she had passed a vehicle before entering her neighborhood, the vehicle followed her home and stopped on the street in front of her home. She said an older man stepped out and yelled at her, advising that he was with the Police Department — he was not — and that he could issue her tickets and warning citations for her driving, according to a police report.
Police arrived at the man's residence later that night, and he told officers he felt it was his duty to express his concern for her actions. He said his car could resemble that of an old police cruiser, and coupled with his statement of "do you know who I am?" could have led the woman believe he was in law enforcement.
Officers told him that, next time, he should call police to handle the situation.
12:22 p.m. — first block of Trina Street
Vandalism. An Ormond Beach woman told police that she suspected a former pizzeria delivery guy egged her vehicle over an altercation between them that occurred a month before.
The woman's neighbor alerted her to the damage, which consisted of several eggs on the car as well as scratches and gouges to the passenger side. When police asked her who could have done this, she told them that a local pizzeria delivery guy had gotten her order wrong a month ago, and had shown up intoxicated to deliver the food. She and her roommate reported him to the restaurant's manager, who sent out the same delivery guy with the correct order, according a police report. Then, an argument between the woman's roommate and the delivery guy broke out, and the woman alleged the delivery guy threw a drink at her roommate.
Police were not called at that time, and the delivery guy was fired. The woman's house was egged a week after that, but it was not reported to police, the report states.
9 a.m. — 1500 block of West Granada Boulevard
Petit theft. Police arrested a 31-year-old Bunnell woman who didn't pay for $70 worth of items while checking out at a local supermarket, telling police that the total was "getting too high so she didn't ring up some items."
When they made contact with the woman at the store's loss prevention officer, police noticed the woman was "very hyperactive and fidgety." A search of her handbag would result in the discovery of several pills, including oxycodone. The woman said they belonged to her brother in-law and that she found them while cleaning out her old car.
She was taken to jail.
