FEB. 20

17000 block of State Road 438. Burglary. An officer dispatched at about 12:20 p.m. noticed a series of burglaries at the West Orange Trail Killarney Station. The original complainant reported a purse and its contents as stolen from a family vehicle, via a smashed window. The purse and its contents were worth more than $1,000. Another victim’s window was broken but nothing taken, despite an iPad inside. Each busted window was valued at $300.


FEB. 12

9000 block of West Colonial Drive. Probation violation. An officer observing traffic near a mall at about 2:33 a.m. noticed a car speeding at 60 mph. The car bore a Georgia plate, but the driver held a Florida ID card and no license. A check showed the driver as wanted in Orange County on a charge of violating probation and the vehicle as stolen from Early County, Georgia. The driver said she did not know the vehicle had been stolen — a male told her he had driven it from Georgia three weeks prior. Officers arrested her on the outstanding warrant.

FEB. 15

Palm and Royal drives. Disorderly intoxication. At about 1 p.m., officers were dispatched to Palm Drive under State Road 429. They found a Winter Garden policeman observing a man struggling to maintain balance on the roadside. The man failed to provide his name or residence, but the Master Name Index confirmed it. The Winter Garden officer said the man had been walking east on Palm Drive and did not hear the officer call to him. At that point, the suspect unzipped his pants and began urinating under S.R. 429. The officer called again, at which point the suspect had identified himself and said he had drunk about 24 beers. Ocoee officers arrested the suspect on disorderly intoxication charges.
