MAY 17


1600 block of East Silver Star Road. Grand theft. An officer stopped a car speeding at 56 mph in a 45-mph zone around 4:55 a.m. on Clarke Road. The driver said he had no wallet or registration. A friend of the driver arrived and gave the officer the driver’s wallet before leaving. A Washington ID confirmed the driver’s identity. The officer detained the driver because dispatch showed no valid license. Authorities contacted Orange County Sheriff’s Office, leading to deputies finding the registered car owner, who said the car was stolen and procured it.

MAY 18


10000 block of West Colonial Drive. Resisting an officer. An officer responded around 2:40 p.m. to a theft from a big-box store, where he met an employee who swore a man took batteries to the deli, concealed them and then left without paying. The employee stopped him and took him to his office. The officer recovered the $6.27 pack of AA batteries and arrested the suspect, who was trespassed from the store. The suspect told officers he was going to run while en route to their car, but they maintained grip of him. He then said he would kick them and tried multiple times before they put him in the back of the car. He kicked the window, so officers put a hobble on his feet. He threatened to kill all officers involved, burn their houses and police station, break their necks, shoot everyone in the station when released from jail and commit various sexual acts on police, families and babies. 


10000 block of West Colonial Drive. Theft. An officer responded around 5 p.m. to a theft from the same big-box store, where he met the same employee, who swore a woman took clothes, concealed them in her handbag and then left without paying. The employee stopped her and took her to his office. Recovered items were a romper, a tank top, shoes and short, worth $43.69 altogether. Officers collected video of the incident and arrested the woman on a $250 bond.


10000 block of West Colonial Drive. Drug possession. A car was driving 61 mph in a 45-mph zone at about 8:10 p.m. on Clarcona-Ocoee Road. An officer stopped the car and smelled cannabis, so he asked the driver whether anyone had smoked cannabis in the car. She said one had the prior day, and that some was in the center console with her pipe. It weighed .1 grams. She was ordered to appear in court.




2720 block of Tryon Place. Weapons violation. At about 4 p.m., police executed a search warrant at the home of Scott Randolph Bush. Police recovered weapons in relation to a crime and a violation of a court order: four handguns, handgun magazines, various ammunition, a bulletproof vest, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Bush was arrested pursuant to an arrest warrant on an aggravated assault charge. Steven Swatkowski was arrested for resisting an officer related to the execution of the warrant.
