The following information was gathered from incident and arrest reports obtained by the Plant City Police Department.


June 9


10:01 p.m. — 700 block of East Drew Street.

Burglary: A man reported unknown suspect(s) broke into his home between 6 and 10 p.m. June 9 and stole three 46-inch television sets valued together at $1,500, one Sony PlayStation 4 video game console valued at $300 and one HP brand laptop computer valued at $1,000.


10:41 p.m. — 1700 block of East Alexander Street.

Simple battery: A woman reported a known subject, another woman, attacked her while she was at a bar with her friends. The woman stated the subject approached her while she was speaking with her friends and struck her right cheek, then pulled her hair. She claimed to have backed away as the subject’s husband intervened. The officer saw a cut near the woman’s jaw, but the woman refused medical help and signed a waiver of prosecution. Contact was later made with the subject, who was intoxicated and stated she “drank too much and got into a fight with a girl.” 

June 10


6:58 p.m. — 900 block of North Nancy Terrace.

Vandalism: An officer received a report regarding a domestic dispute and met with a woman, who said she and her son had gotten into a verbal altercation that led to him damaging her 2002 Mazda Tribute SUV. The rear windshield, driver and passenger side windows had been smashed, the front windshield had been punctured twice and areas near the side windows had been dented. Shattered glass was found inside the vehicle. During an interview with the officer, the son stated he had damaged the vehicle using a crowbar and a shovel, both of which were displayed nearby. The woman declined to press charges and signed a waiver of prosecution.

June 13


10:50 a.m. — 510 block of East Laura Street.

Petit theft: A man reported several of his possessions were stolen from his unlocked apartment between 4 and 6 a.m. June 12. He told an officer that he had two women — both of whom he knew as “Mickey” — at his apartment and that the three had stayed up late talking. One “Mickey” left his apartment at 3:30 a.m., but the other was still there at 4 a.m. when the man fell asleep. He woke up at 6 a.m. to find his wallet had been moved and its contents, a Social Security card, $5 in cash and an identification card, were missing. His blue Roadstar mountain bike, identifiable by an attached milk carton basket and valued at $500, had been taken from his living room. The man believed the second “Mickey” may have stolen his belongings but only wanted to press charges if he discovered someone else committed the crime.
