300 block of Edgegrove Lane. Civil Dispute. At 10:20 a.m., an officer met a complainant about an argument regarding a fence dividing two lots. That morning, the complainant found his neighbor cleaning the fence on the neighbor’s side, still the complainant’s property. The complainant said he would clean it if his neighbor would allow him on the property. The neighbor said, “One of these days, I’m going to stomp you,” according to the complainant, who responded, “I have something in my pocket for you.” The neighbor replied, “Bring it.” The complainant said his neighbor sprayed chlorine on the fence and then on the complainant’s plants. 



500 block of West Henschen Avenue. Aggravated Assault. At 5:20 p.m., an officer responded to a domestic dispute. The officer met a complainant, who said she had answered her door and accepted an eviction notice from her landlord, who yelled at her to get out. The complainant replied, “We getting out this [expletive] house,” and they both walked to their vehicles, with the landlord swearing at her while entering her respective vehicle. The complainant, standing by her vehicle, said “[Expletive] you,” tore the eviction notice and flipped off the landlord, who sped at her in reverse and almost hit her. The complainant’s daughter and a man witnessed the incident. The complainant pressed charges of aggravated assault.


300 block of South Tubb Street. Driving With a Suspended License. An officer saw a sedan traveling east at 4:21 p.m. in the area of West Colonial Drive and Florida’s Turnpike and then stopped it for a faulty brake light. The driver had a suspended license and two active writs of attachment for failure to pay child support, according to reports. The writs were worth $1,931.28 altogether. The officer arrested the driver and took him to Orange County Jail.




10000 block of West Colonial Drive. Theft. An officer reported to a retail store, where two sisters admitted they had concealed unpaid items in a baby bag while the other was lookout. The officer asked why, and one said it was a moment of bad judgment. The officer charged them with retail theft of the following: 12 Kool-Aid packs at $0.20 each, an auxiliary cable worth $6.88, two Samsung phone cases at $12.88 each, a pin cable valued at $9.88, a screen protector worth $14.97 and a sync device priced at $9.96, for a total of $56.97. 



Lakewood Avenue and Wurst Road. Drug Possession. An officer stopped a car with an illegible temporary tag at about 1:40 a.m. The driver said she had a small amount of marijuana in her center console, prompting a vehicle search. Officers also found a pipe, resulting in notices to appear for the driver and the passenger. The marijuana weighed about a gram, and the driver received a verbal warning for the tag.
