SO WHAT'S IN THE PACKAGE?
17000 block of Hampton Falls Terrace, Bradenton
Information only: Deputies were called to the scene in reference to a problem between neighbors. A deputy spoke with a female homeowner who said she had received a package from a male neighbor, but refused to open it. The woman said she had been having ongoing issues with the man. The deputy found two previous case cards filled out by the woman complaining about her neighbor. The deputy took photos of the package, which stated it was from the neighbor. The deputy was unable to determine if the man actually had sent the package. The woman had a doorbell system that allows her to record who comes to the door and it was a FedEx delivery person the not her neighbor. The woman asked deputies if she could open the package and was told she could. Then she said she didn't want to open the package and would "throw it over the fence" into her neighbor's yard. Deputies advised the woman that probably wasn't the best decision. Deputies advised her to return the package to sender if she did not wish to have it in her residence. The woman was issued a case number. The deputy did not speak to the neighbor as previous reports he had been interviewed before as the dispute had been ongoing for more than a month.
