DEC. 10

UNLICENSED BUSINESS

200 block of North Clarke Road. Unlicensed Business. A massage establishment, Herbal Spa, was listed among Florida Department of Health’s cease-and-desist orders for practicing without a license as a massage establishment. The business operators received word of their listing in November.

DEC. 11

BIKE THIEF

3100 block of Old Winter Garden Road. Robbery. An officer met with a complainant in the parking lot of a superstore around 4:27 a.m. The complainant said he had gone into the building and then had felt metal — which he believed was a gun — press against the back of his head when he returned to his vehicle. A male suspect asked the complainant to hand over his wallet; the complainant complied. The suspect rode away on a bicycle. Police canvassed the area but did not find the suspect, whom the complainant would recognize if he saw him again, he said. The complainant suffered no injuries.

WINTER GARDEN

NOV. 30

FALSE START

1300 block of West Pointe Villas Boulevard. Theft. An officer responded to the scene of an attempted vehicle theft around noon. The vehicle owner said he had parked his vehicle in the lot by his apartment around 8 p.m. the prior night. When he returned near 11:30 a.m., he found his rear driver-side window smashed and the center console open. An unknown suspect removed the ignition from the steering column and left it by the shifter on the center console. No items were missing, and no fingerprints were present. Total damage to the vehicle was about $500.

DEC. 3

MISTAKE IN IDENTITY

14900 block of West Colonial Drive. Driving With License Suspended. An officer stopped a vehicle for traveling almost 70 mph in a 45-mph zone around 9:13 a.m. The driver said she did not have her license with her and that the vehicle belonged to her cousin. She claimed to be a woman with the same last name for several minutes until she provided her true full name. Officers arrested her on charges of knowingly driving with license suspended, providing false information and confirmed Lake County warrants. Officers added a charge of possession of a controlled substance without prescription once they had found several medication bottles in the vehicle. The suspect said the medication was prescribed to her but could not prove it.

DEC. 5

A LONG STORY

13500 block of West Colonial Drive. Drug Possession. While conducting a stop on a Georgia car with broken tag lights around 7:37 p.m., an officer noticed a rolled cigar in the right ear of a male passenger, with a strong cannabis odor coming from the vehicle. The driver, a minor, said she had a Florida license but not on her, with the name Sarah. When dispatch found no record of this name, the officer asked again, at which point the driver gave her real name. The officer had both exit the car. In his search, he found the marijuana cigar and a Ziploc bag full of marijuana, for a total of 69.5 grams. The male, 19, also had $1,810.40 on him, of which $1,120 was in $20 bills and just one $1 bill. Both denied ownership of the marijuana, but both were arrested on felony possession charges with intent to sell. While in custody, the male’s cell phone received two text messages, one of which said, “Do you got some.”
