Plane Crash Near Naples
Tragedy struck on Saturday morning when a charter flight crashed on I75 near Naples. The flight, which had departed from Fort Lauderdale, was headed to Ohio before returning to South Florida. However, the plane encountered problems, and the pilot reported losing both engines before attempting to land. Unfortunately, the plane hit a car during the landing and burst into flames. Only three of the five people on board survived the crash. The FAA is currently investigating the incident.
Storm Shutter Thefts
A series of brazen thefts have been reported in the neighborhoods of Deerfield Beach and Pompo Beach. Surveillance videos captured a man stealing storm shutters from homes in both areas. In a matter of minutes, the thief used tools to uninstall the accordion shutters and calmly placed them in the back of his van. Multiple neighbors have come forward with similar reports, indicating that this may be an organized operation. If you have any information regarding these thefts, please contact the police immediately.
18-Year-Old Shot in Parking Dispute
An 18-year-old in Hiia is recovering after being shot by his neighbor during a parking dispute. The victim’s sister claims that the 66-year-old neighbor, Husto Arate Rodriguez, threatened to kill everyone before firing multiple shots at her brother. However, Rodriguez’s family insists that he has never had any previous problems with his neighbors and has been a long-time resident of the neighborhood. Rodriguez is currently in custody without bond, awaiting further legal proceedings.
Misuse of the 911 System
Penbrook Park Town Commissioner Jeffrey Jacobs is facing charges for misusing the 911 system. During a town commission meeting on November 8th, Jacobs abruptly halted the proceedings, claiming concern for his safety and accusing the mayor of carrying a gun. However, an independent investigation later revealed that Jacobs had created a hostile work environment in the town. Jacobs will not be taken into custody at this time.
