3:30 p.m. — 800 block of Tamiami Trail. Suspicious Person. A man who attempted to rent space at a flea market made the property owner feel uncomfortable when he hugged her for an extended amount of time and kissed her on the cheek. He then said he wished she was not married with children, because she was the kind of woman he “would like to have sex with.” When police contacted the man, he claimed to have sustained head injuries that caused him to forget the incident ever occurred.
7:29 a.m. — 2200 block of Bee Ridge Road. Grand Theft. A car dealership employee notified police when he noticed three Cadillac sport utility vehicles were damaged. When officers reviewed security camera footage, they spotted a thin man with a shirt around his face remove the rear bumper of one vehicle, the front bumper and hood of another truck and the front bumper and side grills of the third car. The employee suspected a chop shop in Port Charlotte was somehow involved.
