Drug raid in The Villages retirement community nets evidence of golf cart 'chop shop'

Five people are being held in a Florida jail on drug-related charges in connection with a SWAT-team raid in The Villages retirement community that turned up evidence of a possible "chop shop" operation for stolen golf cars.

Among those arrested was Kathleen Unrath, 43, niece of the ailing homeowner, who was not believed to be involved in any illegal activity.

Unrath, who lived in the house, said she was going to take care of her uncle but instead was allegedly running the illegal drug and chop shop businesses behind his back, deputies told WFTV.

Hello from Michigan:

Woman declared dead found alive inside Detroit funeral home

DETROIT – A 20-year-old woman who was declared dead by fire officials was found alive inside a Detroit funeral home Sunday.

Paramedics from the Southfield Fire Department were called to a home Sunday morning for an unresponsive woman, according to WXYZ.

Paramedics realized the woman wasn’t breathing and tried to revive her. After about 30 minutes, they determined she was deceased.

“The paramedics performed CPR and other life reviving methods for 30 minutes. Given medical readings and the condition of the patient, it was determined at that time that she did not have signs of life,” Southfield Fire Department Chief Johnny L. Menifee said in a statement.

The fire department contacted the Oakland County Medical Examiner’s Office and provided the woman’s medical data. Menifee said there was no indication of foul play.


Hours later, the staff at the James H. Cole funeral home discovered the woman was still breathing. For now, the department is withholding the woman’s name.

My home state of Georgia checks in:
Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill said he was the target of a Social Security scam on Friday. Now, the man accused of calling his county-issued cellphone is wanted by deputies. In a news release, the sheriff’s office said Hill received a call from a man claiming to be an investigator with the federal government. The caller, later identified as Anthony Clark Jr., reportedly told the sheriff he was looking into the “fraudulent use” of Hill’s Social Security number.

“Amused, the sheriff decided to play along,” authorities said in the release, adding that Clark “had no idea that he was talking to and attempting to scam Clayton County’s top cop.” Hill said he gave the man a phony name and date of birth, as well as the last four digits of a made-up Social Security number. He also told the caller he recently lost his wallet at a local mall, but went back and retrieved it the following day. According to Hill, the caller began scolding him for not filing a police report. He then reportedly told the sheriff his personal information had been used to rent a car in Texas that was later linked to a murder investigation and money-laundering case. Clark also told Hill that the FBI and U.S. Marshals Service had taken out a warrant for his arrest, but that it was “being held” so the issue could be resolved, authorities said.

“When the man asked the sheriff for his credit card information, the conversation went downhill,” the release said, adding that Clark cursed at Hill before hanging up on him. The sheriff’s office traced the man’s phone number, and “within the hour” deputies surrounded a Henry County home where Clark was believed to be residing. Neighbors told police the man they were searching for had moved about a week earlier, however. Authorities also discovered that Clark was wanted in South Carolina for failing to make child support payments, the release said, adding the attempted scam earned the man the No. 11 spot on the sheriff’s “Ten Most Wanted” list.

Florida man kills mother in argument over orange juice, car

NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (WPEC) — A man told police he just lost it when he shot his mother to death during an argument in North Miami Beach.

According to police, Luis Martin Pages, 29, called 911 on Sunday afternoon to say he killed his mother.

Pages told police they had an argument after he asked to borrow her car to look for a job. He said she told him "no" since it's Labor Day and everything would be closed.

He then grabbed a jar of orange juice out of the refrigerator. He said she took it from him and threw it out, police said. According to the arrest report, the argument escalated to the point where Pages pulled a gun out of his pocket and shot his mother. He told police he didn't know how many times he shot her, but that he fired all the bullets, and normally kept six bullets in the gun.

Police said Pages then tried to shoot himself but realized his gun was empty, according to the report.

Hello from Michigan:

Man finds possible brain wrapped in foil on Lake Michigan beach

Police in Wisconsin were left befuddled after an apparent brain was found on a Lake Michigan beach.

According to Fox 6 in Milwaukee, the brain was found by construction worker Jimmy Senda, who was walking along the shore at Samuel Myers Park in Racine on Tuesday.

“I don’t really know how to explain it, it didn’t register...I was just like, ‘What is this?’” Senda told the TV station. "I came across this square package, wrapped in aluminum foil, and around it, it had a pink rubber band.

“Curiosity got to me, so I popped it open and it looked like a chicken breast -- kind of. It took a little bit for it to really (register) of what was going on; it was a brain.”

Police are working with the Racine County Medical Examiner’s Office to determine if the brain is human or not.

Florida dad defends fifth-grade son wearing Hooters mask to school

It’s the breast mask ever.

A Florida dad says there’s nothing wrong with his fifth-grade son wearing a Hooters-themed mask to school– after the principal said it was “offensive” and made the boy take it off.

“He told me it was deemed offensive,” Steve Golba told Fox 35 Orlando. “I told him we go there as a family. We eat their wings, we watch sports. I said we have chocolate cake! We go there all the time. It is not an offensive mask.”

Ian Golba, 11, has been wearing the mask, covered with the name of the restaurant, to Sunset Park Elementary in Windermere since school began in August.

But on Tuesday, a teacher confronted him about it, WESH reported.

“I wore it and she said it was not appropriate for school,” Ian told the outlet. “I asked her why, and she said, ‘If you really want to know why, go ask the principal.’”
