WCSO: Weapons Seized During Search Warrant

www.wctv.tv/home/headlines/WCSO_Weapons_Seized_During_Sea…

UPDATE: – March 8, 2012 -By Mike Springer

Deputies say they found an assortment of guns inside Todd Mitchell’s home along with drugs. And having those weapons violates Mitchell’s probation.

"He’s got a pretty good stockpile going here, he’s got a pretty good history," says Lt. C.L. Morrison of the Wakullla County Sheriff’s Office.

Neighbors on Emmett-Whaley Road describe Todd Mitchell as a handy-man who did odd jobs and mostly kept to himself.Mitchell, a convicted felon, was arrested at his Crawfordville home after neighbors reported hearing gun shots.

"When the detectives did a background check, they learned that homeowner, Todd Mitchell, was a convicted felon. They also looked at his history and also learned he was on felony probation," says Morrison.

Deputies say Mitchell was put on probation last year for DUI and making threats against a public official. A warrant was secured and detectives searched his home.

"Ten fire arms recovered, A homemade silencer was fashioned on one of the firearms. Marijuana and drug paraphernalia," says Morrison.

As a convicted felon, deputies say Mitchell cannot legally own a firearm. Deputies say he gave no motive for owning the guns. He now faces a slew of charges including ones for weapons and drugs.

"I don’t have a crystal ball to tell you what’s going to happen in court, but he’s potentially looking at spending the rest of his life in prison," says Morrison.

Mitchell is currently being in the Wakulla County Jail without bond

Crawfordville, Florida – March 8, 2012 -

A 39-year-old Crawfordville man faces weapons and drug charges in connection with the execution of a search warrant by Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office detectives on Wednesday, March 7, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum.

Todd James Mitchell was arrested for possession of a weapon by a convicted felon; violation of probation; knowingly driving while license suspended or revoked; possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana; and possession of narcotics equipment.

WCSO detectives received intelligence that Mitchell possessed at least two firearms despite being a convicted felon. Deputies determined that Mitchell was on supervised probation and his probation officer scheduled a search of his home.

Detectives provided security for the probation officer at the home and observed Mitchell leaving the residence in a van. Detectives recognized Mitchell and knew he did not possess a valid driver license and he was detained. During the arrest for driving without a valid license, a loaded .38 caliber revolver was observed in the vehicle in plain view.

Later, a search warrant was obtained from the court to determine if Mitchell had any more weapons at his home and spent shell casings, marijuana and several guns were observed. The search included Mitchell’s home, out buildings, camper trailer and the vehicle and a second firearm, a .22 caliber rifle, was located in the van. In addition, eight more firearms were recovered along with a camouflage bag and miscellaneous ammunition. Less than 20 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia were discovered in the camper trailer.

Mitchell was transported to the Wakulla County Jail without incident. Detective Lorne Whaley, Detective Josh Langston, Detective Nick Boutwell, Lt. C.L. Morrison, Lt. Bruce Ashley, Sgt. Ronald Mitchell, Detective Rob Giddens and Deputy Nick Gray investigated.

WCSO: Attempted Murder Arrest Made Following Disturbance

Crawfordville, Florida – July 23, 2012 -

A 40-year-old Crawfordville man faces four charges including attempted murder in connection with a physical disturbance reported at midnight Monday, July 23, according to Sheriff Donnie Crum.

Bryan Frederick Braswell was arrested for attempted murder, aggravated battery, false imprisonment and sexual assault after a 51-year-old female victim reported being beaten by the suspect.

Investigators were called to the home of the victim south of Crawfordville and discovered her on the front porch of her residence in severe pain. Deputy Nick Gray, Sgt. Ronald Mitchell and Deputy Scott Powell arrived at the home and tended to the victim along with Wakulla EMS.

Deputy Powell stationed himself behind the home and discovered evidence that the suspect was hiding in a wooded area behind the home. Braswell was detained without incident.

During the investigation phase, the victim reported that she came to the residence to pick up some of her belongings. Once arriving at the residence, Braswell threw belongings at the victim striking her in the face. The victim was also punched and kicked by the suspect before being dragged into the home by her hair.

Once inside the home the suspect sat on top of her and placed his hands around her neck and threatened to kill her. The victim attempted to call 911 when the suspect grabbed the phone and attempted to sexually force it inside the victim.

After briefly escaping the suspect, the victim was grabbed by the hair again and thrown to the floor. The suspect eventually let the victim go and she called law enforcement to the scene. After originally declining medical attention, the victim was transported to the hospital by Wakulla EMS.

Tallahassee Police Department officials are also investigating an altercation that occurred the previous day in a pharmacy in their jurisdiction which involved the suspect and victim. Braswell slapped a phone out of the victim’s hand at the store and store employees called 911. Braswell fled the scene when he realized law enforcement had been contacted.

Braswell remains in the Wakulla County Jail awaiting his first appearance.

Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office Reports Child Porn Fine Scam

www.wctv.tv/home/headlines/Wakulla-Cou-171211741.html

Wakulla County, FL – September 25, 2012

The Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office Financial Crimes Unit has received two calls for service recently involving a scam utilizing computers and the Internet. The two potential victims both stated they were using the Internet and received a “pop-up,” said Sheriff Donnie Crum.

This pop-up indicated that it was the F.B.I. and the user (victim) had been viewing child pornography on their computer. The pop-up further stated that a fine of 0 could be paid and the computer could be unfrozen.

.

The site requests the user purchase a “Money Pack” or “Green Dot” card to make the payment of the fine. If citizens receive any information from a potential victim about this scam, please tell them that this is a scam and not to send any money. It is also recommended that the computer have a full virus/malware/spyware scan completed and to have a virus/malware/spyware protector installed.

The WCSO Financial Crimes Unit has been in contact with the Green Dot company’s fraud department and they are aware of the situation. The F.B.I. is also aware of the situation and is taking appropriate action.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement was contacted and stated this is a well-known and documented scam that has been used before and has now resurfaced. If anyone becomes a victim of this scam, contact, WCSO Detective Matt Helms at 745-7190.

Moving into 2012, the photo was published in an undated (mid-Sep 2012) blog titled "Will Free Shipping Day Rival Cyber Monday Sales?"

*********************************

This is the continuation of a photo-project that I began in the summer of 2008: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

As I indicated when I started this project in 2008, I don’t like to intrude on people’s privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they’re still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what’s right in front of me.

I’ve also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting — literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I’ve learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture … after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it’s pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject.

Thus far, I’ve generally avoided photographing bums, drunks, crazies, and homeless people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don’t want to be photographed, and I don’t want to feel like I’m taking advantage of them. I’m still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We’ll see how it goes …

The only other thing I’ve noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, far more people who are not so interesting. They’re probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I’ve photographed … but there was just nothing memorable about them.

About a week before this picture was taken, I saw this same woman with her two suitcases (who could forget such a lime-green suitcase) sitting in almost the same spot here in Verdi Square at 72nd Street & Broadway, reading a book or working on a crossword puzzle; click here to see the picture.

At the time, I thought she was a slightly confused, but peacefully content, tourist; now it seems that my first impression was mistaken…

And, in fact, it’s best not to leap to any conclusions: three weeks later, on August 18th, I saw this same woman (apparently wearing the same shoes and slacks) sitting wide-awake and writing busily in a notebook, on a park bench in Riverside Park, some 5 blocks north and 3 blocks west of here (click here to see it).

Note: this photo was published in an Aug 22, 2009 "Poverty in America" blog article titled "1 in 5 Americans Are Poor." It was also published in a Nov 17, 2009 blog titled "Payday Loans and Bankruptcy in Canada: No Clear Correlation."

Moving into 2010, the photo was published in an Apr 10, 2010 blog titled "Mind Blowing American Wealth Disparity: The Bottom 50% Have Comparatively Nothing." It was also published in an undated (Sep 2010) blog titled "109th Street, part 3." And it was published in a Nov 22, 2010 blog titled "Prepare Yourself If You Go Abroad." It was also published in a Dec 27, 2010 blog titled "Are there any private lenders that give student loans after bankruptcy?"

Moving into 2011, the photo was published in a blig titled "Covington Cash." It was also published in an undated (late Apr 2011) blog titled "Private Student Loans Set to Stage a Major Comeback."

Moving into 2012, the photo was published in a May 24, 2012 blog titled "Author Archives: admin."

This is part of an evolving photo-project, which will probably continue throughout the summer of 2008, and perhaps beyond: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

Second purchase of the Flea. There’s a small list of things that I’m an absolute sucker for, provided that the price is right. for a Model 100? Yup, I’m in.

The Model 100 was the Volkswagen Beetle of notebook battery computer batterys. Every reporter had one back in the Eighties. It had a big, comfortable keyboard, a big display that was readable in any kind of light, and it ran forever on AA batteries. And like most reporters themselves, the Model 100 was built to take all kinds of abuse.

During a train ride to Penn State last week, I wrote and posted an article right from my iPhone. That’s the legacy of the Model 100: it’s a field computer battery for outbound writers.

What’s in my bag
Notebook Battery

Image by get down
What do I travel with? Well thanks for asking. Click through to the large size for a clearer image, but here’s a list of what’s in my now carefully refined, separately stored travel bag.

– All sorts of electronic gadgets:
– Laptop charger; the cable depends on where I’m travelling to
– Multi-converter with USB charger – very handy
– Kengsington backup USB battery – great if the iPhone or Blackberry is dying
– USB hub, as the laptop has only two connectors
– Mouse to counter my incipient RSI
– Ethernet cable for those hotels and offices without a good wireless connection
– Webcam for Skyping with home
– iPod cable and charger
– Sports watch for trips to the gym and telling the time in two time zones
– Torch, because you never know when you’ll need it
– USB cable
– Sports headphones as I have ears that can’t hold anything in
– Tripod, in case I want to capture that night shot or self-portrait (vain? no!)
– Lumix camera (not pictured – I’m using it!)
– Blackberry, regretably, but has its benefits
– iPhone (for music and movies rather than calls when abroad)

– Work documents
– Laptop. This is my work one. Whilst I love my Mac this is probably better as it’s much light, office-compatible and secure
– Index cards, which prove great for notetaking and creating that hipster PDA
– Marmite. Just in case
– Magazines. Flights are a great time to flick through these, and there’s satisfaction in discarding them afterwards to reduce weight
– Books, generally one reading and one to read. I live in fear of running out of reading material. I once took an 18 hour bus journey across Bolivia rather than wait days for a plane as I had nothing left to read
– Crossword book, for longer trips, to relax the mind (really)
– Etymotic in-ear headphones. Really good, comfortable earphones that remove almost all external noise. I sometimes travel with a Bose noise-cancelling set, but they’re bulky
– Goggles for those warm, Middle Eastern hotel pools
– A hotel key converted into an iPhone stand, simple and very useful
– Credit cards and cash. I’m running up to £3k a month in expenses, so would be lost without these
– A host of frequent flyer, immigration and health cards
– Just enough shirts, t-shirts, underwear and socks to see me through the trip
– Sports gear, generally washed in the sink and a little skanky towards the end of the trip
– Toiletries, honed to one bag
– Contact lenses
– Glasses and sunglasses
– Diary and notebook battery, Moleskine of course
– Passport
– External harddrive, since it pays to backup on the road and have some extra movies to watch
– Pencil case
– iPod on some longer trips, for extra entertainment choice
– A selection of currencies. I normally have around five or six in here at a time – UK£, US$ , UAE Dirham, Egyptian Pounds, Kuwait Dinar, Jordanian Dinar, sometimes Euros too
– Trainers, as keeping fit is a necessity when living in hotels, planes and offices
– An extra bag for dressing gowns, trips to the office etc.
– Bonus item on this trip – BA First class pyjamas and washbag, since regifted to friends

This is pretty much the standard packing list for three or four days away. Most of these things now live in a separate drawer so that I can pull them together quickly. It’s not the lightest load, but I’d say I use almost all of these, most of the time. Although at a push I could travel with credit card, passport, laptop and glasses.

What’s in your bag?
