A sheriff’s deputy arrived at the scene of a reported burglary. Complainant indicated that approximately $3,000 in cash, which was hidden in a compartment in a bed, was discovered missing.

The manager of the clearing service that had access to the apartment was interviewed but denied that the cleaning crew had been in the apartment during the relevant time period.

April 18, theft

Complainant, the owner of a store, indicated to a sheriff’s deputy that a young female had stolen merchandise from his store. Specifically, the complainant indicated that the complainant had taken several items to the dressing room, put most of the items back, purchased a sticker with cash, and then left the store.  

However, the complainant noticed several empty hangers on the floor near where the female had been in the store. The complainant believed that the stolen items consisted of a white swim top valued at $58, a white swim bottom valued at $25, and a white T-shirt valued at $65.  

Photographs of the subject were obtained and processed into evidence.

April 26, burglary

Complainant told sheriff’s deputy that someone broke into his vehicle the prior evening. Complainant indicated he parked his vehicle in his driveway around 1 a.m. and, when he approached his vehicle the following morning, he noticed the center console was open.
