Spam King Ronald Scelson Branches Out Into Alleged Rape Of 14-Year-Old Girl


Slidell, Louisiana (The Weekly Vice) - Ronald Scelson, a 36-year-old man from Slidell, Louisiana, was arrested last week after a months-long investigation into the rape and false imprisonment of a 14-year-old girl. Slidell police officers busted him on counts of molesting a juvenile, forced rape, marijuana possession, possessing drug paraphernalia and possessing a weapon while in possession of narcotics.

The Slidell police department's press release indicates that the investigation began in March, soon after Mardi Gras week, which ended on February 24th, Mardi Gras Day. According to department spokesman Kevin Foltz, the 14-year-old victim indicated that she was handcuffed to a chair and sexually assaulted at 1831 Third St. in Slidell, where Scelson has a business. She then reportedly told a friend about the incident and the friend told the victim’s mother. The mother immediately alerted Slidell police, who have been looking into the matter ever since.

During a raid of Scelson's home and office last week, police seized three laptops, twelve desktop computers, seven external hard drives and ten Internet servers. A search of the suspect's vehicle turned up the drugs and drug paraphernalia, according to the press release.

The police expressed great public concern about the amount of seized equipment, stating that it is possible that some of the computers will be found to have indecent material on their drives. It is also possible, given the victim's claim several chat windows were open on the computers during the assault, that Scelson uploaded images of the incident directly to the Internet.

But one thing that seems to have escaped the attention of the local police force is Scelson's previous run-ins with the law. An anti-spam blog identified him in 2004 as being the Cajun Spam King, the self-proclaimed "most prolific spammer on the planet." Ironically, the blog screed warned readers not to harass Scelson with an outpouring of pornographic mailings to his home address because of his wife and three kids.

Another site quotes him as saying about his illegal spamming activities: "I will do everything I can for them not to find me to shut me down. I can stay up like this for years, and they'll never totally lock on to me."

Meanwhile, Scelson has been booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail, bond unknown.

Phillip Wagner Knocked On Heaven’s Door - Got Reject Notice Instead


Wagner Jail Booking Report


Largo, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Phillip Glenn Wagner, a 54-year-old Largo man was arrested early Saturday morning after crashing his car into a church school building. Told police he was trying to kill himself so he could "be closer to Jesus."

According to Largo police, Wagner intentionally drove his car into the Faith United Methodist Church, causing more than $20,000 in damage..

Wagner reportedly told police he decided to ram the church after church staff members refused to help him in a time of need. He said he wanted to be "closer to Jesus" according to the arrest report.

Church administrator, Brian Smawley, stated he had never had contact with Wagner in the past.

Largo police say the crash occurred at about 3:30 a.m.. Sunday services went proceeded as scheduled because the crash didn't involve the worship building.

Wagner was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on a charge of criminal mischief to a place of worship. His bond was set at $5,000.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Noticed on his jail booking report a that he has a tattoo which reads "Cherry Lover". While I suppose there's a slight chance he really does love fruit, we're pretty sure that's not the intended meaning.

In child molestation circles, Cherry Lover is regularly used to define the act of taking a child's virginity. Although we don't know if that was the intent..... I find myself wondering why they couldn't have built that church wall just a little stronger.

Courtney Antillon Cries “Accident” After Using Vehicle To Run Down Woman She Saw Talking To Her Boyfriend


Omaha, Nebraska (The Weekly Vice) -- Courtney L. Antillon, a 19-year-old Omaha woman, was arrested Monday after she struck an innocent woman with her vehicle after seeing her standing next to her boyfriend. The victim and Antillon's boyfriend had just exchanged insurance information after a minor traffic accident.

"I'm not good," Antillon waled from her jail cell. "It's never going to go away. I'm scared."

Antillon now cries alone in her jail cell - charged with manslaughter after striking down a woman in a jealous rage just moments after seeing her boyfriend and the woman standing together along the roadside.

According to prosecutors, Antillon was driving her silver Mazda Monday night when she saw her boyfriend, Israel Francisco Gonzalo, talking to Ana Rodriquez-Delopez-Cardenas.

Investigators say Antillon became angry, made a u-turn and then tried to strike Gonzalo with her vehicle. Although she succeeded in clipping Gonzalo, her vehicle struck and killed Cardenas as she was getting into her car. Antillon then drove away and later abandoned the vehicle.

"I remember hitting her and seeing her on the ground," said Antillon from the jail. "I seen two people run to her. I didn't know those were her kids."

Antillon's own two children were with her in the car along with her cousin, Dianna Dandridge, who was also arrested in the case. She told investigators she drove away because she needed time to think. She later met with her mother, said goodbye to her children and turned herself in.

Antillon characterized the entire incident as an accident, however prosecutors don't agree. County Attorney, Don Klein called Antillon's actions "senseless," pointing out that Antillon turned the vehicle around and aiming it right for Gonzalo.

According to reports the couple had been arguing earlier when Antillon decided to kick Gonzalo out of the house.

Antillon was charged with manslaughter, 2nd-degree assault, and leaving the scene of an accident. Her cousin, Dandridge, was charged with being an accessory to a felony.

Columbia, Missouri (The Weekly Vice) - Curtis Jones, a 31-year-old New Franklin man is back in custody after he used a toilet paper roll to escape from a Columbia, Missouri jail.

According to the Howard County Sheriff's office, Jones escaped from the Howard County Jail Monday after using cardboard from a toilet paper roll to jam his cell door.

Jones' bid for freedom did take him far. He was apprehended by Columbia police Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators caught up to Jones after responding to a tip that was instrumental in locating the fugitive. When they arrived at Jones' suspected hideout, they discovered he had fled on foot. He was apprehended after a short foot chase near Melissa and Osage Drive.

This was not the first time Jones escaped captivity. In 1996 Jones escaped from the old Fayette Jail after climbing through a hole in the ceiling. He is currently serving time for a theft after his conviction for stealing anhydrous ammonia - a chemical used for manufacturing meth.

Man Found With Naked 12-Year-Old Girl At Empty Cul-De-Sac. Victim Told Police It Was Their “Quiet Place”

Garner, North Carolina (The Weekly Vice) - Jonathan Leigh Sullivan, a 41-year-old Raleigh man was arrested Monday after police found him in an empty cul-de-sac with a naked 12-year-old girl.

According to Garner Police, Sullivan was parked in the cul-de-sac of an empty subdivision under construction when an off-duty sheriff's deputy decided to investigate.

As the deputy approached the vehicle, he found Sullivan in the vehicle's backseat with a 2-year-old boy. The deputy called for backup when the suspect gave inconsistent statements as to his reason for being in the neighborhood.

Garner police soon arrived and asked Sullivan again why he was in the neighborhood. Sullivan reportedly explained that he had just dropped his daughter off at a local golf club.

As one officer talked to Sullivan, the other noticed a pair of binoculars, a computer and a digital camera inside the vehicle. Officers asked for permission to look at the camera, which was granted by the suspect, according to a search warrant affidavit.

The camera's first photo purportedly showed what appeared to be the vagina of an underage girl. At the same time, another officer noticed the shape of a person hiding under a tarp in the SUV's rear interior.

When the tarp was lifted, officers discovered a twelve-year-old girl trying to dress herself.

Officers interviewed the girl who explained she and Sullivan came to the cul-de-dac often, as it was their "quiet place", according to the arrest affidavit. The two children were later identified as the grandchildren of Sullivan's girlfriend.

Area court records indicate all four-- Sullivan, the grandmother, and her two grandchildren-- live at the same residence.

Sullivan is being held at the Wake County Jail on two counts of sexual exploitation of a child and one count of taking indecent liberties with a child. His is currently being held on a $225,000 bond.

Bonita Springs, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Four tweedle-dumbs were arrested Saturday night after an angry mob of trailer park dwellers attacked deputies who were called to assist an intoxicated man.

According to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to the Manna Christian Mobile Home Park about 7:30 p.m. in response to a medical assistance call.

When medics attempted to treat Garcia, he began punching and kicking at the EMS worker. Garcia reportedly ignored orders to stop, kicking one of the deputies several times in the leg.

Deputies were attempting to pull Oscar Garcia off the medic, when 41-year-old Jaime Garcia became involved in the confrontation by striking a deputy in the shoulder. Deputies say Oscar Garcia continued kicking, rendering them unable to bring either man under control.

When backup arrived, the crowd was pushed back away, allowing deputies to bring Oscar Garcia under control. It was then Esther Garcia entered the fray by attempting to pull the deputy away from Garcia. A crowd onlooker, 30-year-old Jose Hilario, refused orders to back away, earning himself a resisting/obstruction charge.

Oscar Garcia was charged with battery on an officer/firefighter/emt. Jaime Garcia was charged with battery on an officer/firefighter/emt and resisting arrest w/ violence. Esther Garcia was charged with battery on an officer/firefighter/emt and resisting arrest w/ violence.

Lola Schofield Jail Booking Report
Lola Schofield MySpace Profile

Zephyrhills, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Lola Brooks Schofield, a 52-year-old Zephyrhills woman was arrested Sunday night for DUI - but not before she gave a Florida Trooper an earful of sweet-talking followed by angry tantrums in the back of his cruiser.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, an officer was on his way home when he noted a vehicle swerving back and forth across the road. He pulled the vehicle over and awaited backup from an on-duty trooper who approached the vehicle.

When Schofield emerged from her car, she lost her balance and fell against the car. She attempted to walk, but staggered instead, forcing the two officers to catch her several times. She then began to have a conversation with an imaginary passenger in her vehicle, according to the trooper's arrest report.

When the Trooper asked Schofield to perform a field sobriety test, she reportedly told him "I will try, baby." After stumbling about she retired the notion of performing the test, stating "I better not do these, I am too drunk," according to the arrest report.

Investigators say she declined a breath test, telling the trooper "I don't think that would be a good idea for me baby." When he asked her to decide, she reportedly replied "No, baby."

During the ride home, howeve, the trooper noted in his report that Schofield began to pound on the vehicle's Plexiglas's partition, complaining that someone was "molesting her babies." She reportedly continued the tyrade, challenging the trooper to "do something about it."

She then cursed at the officer and attempted to kick out the windows of the cruiser, according to the report.

Schofield was booked into the Pasco County Jail on a charge of driving under the influence. She was later released - apparently without bond.

Chester Hatton Isn’t Camera Shy - Jailed After Sneaking Into Women’s Bathroom To Photograph Woman And Underage Girl

Cincinnati, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) -- Chester Lee Hatton Jr., a 45-year-old Ohio Man was arrested after allegedly attempting to photograph an underage girl in a bathroom stall.

According to Springdale police, Hatton attempted to use his cell phone to take a photo of the female while she used the restroom at the Tri-County Mall in Cincinnati. He then fled the scene.

Investigators say Hatton returned to the mall June 20 and waited for another victim to enter the restroom. When a woman entered the restroom, Hatton reportedly followed - but not before catching the attention of a security guard working at a nearby department store.

Police say Hatton, who is a registered sex offender on probation, was found inside the women's restroom looking into the adult female's stall. He was taken into custody, questioned and then released. (Released?)

Detectives arrested Hatton three days and booked him into the Hamilton County Justice Center on two counts of voyeurism.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

I'm glad they caught this sick bastard - but I've about had my limit with the level of stupidity that seems to permiate our legal system. Here, a registered sex offender on probation is caught inside a women's restroom - yet they let him go? I want to know why. What stroke of insanity possessed the prosecutor's office to think they didn't have a reason to hold this man?

Sometimes our society's worst enemy isn't the perverts who molest our kids. It's a legal system that doesn't seem to understand the significance of this sort of madness.

Kimberly Boone’s Past Comes Back To Haunt Her - Woman Charged With Shooting Husband Embezzled More Than $765,000, Lived Lavishly


UPDATE:

Kimberly Boone MySpace Page
Kimberly Boon Jail Booking Report

Winter Spring, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Kimberly Boone, a 42-year-old Winter Springs woman who admitted to shooting her husband in a darkened garage last March was in deep financial trouble - now investigators say she stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from her former employer.

In late March, The Weekly Vice reported on a horrific story in which a wife lured her husband into their darkened garage and then shot him in the chest. Although she claimed burglars shot her husband, investigators believe she was the shooter . After changing her story several times, she finally admitted to shooting her husband.

Our story ended on the speculation that there was more to the story. Just months before the shooting, the Boone's house caught fire. A short time after Kimberly Boone left their residence, the house burst into flames. Robert Boone, who had fallen asleep, was pulled to safety through a bedroom window.

Now, the pieces of the puzzle are falling into place. Kimberly Boone, who played the role of a loving wife who was kind to her neighbors and family, was in deep financial trouble and about to become the target of an FBI investigation.

Authorities say Kimberly Boone is under investigation for embezzling more than $765,000 from a company in Fredrick, Maryland where she worked. They believe Boone embezzled the money from her employer, I-Hire, while handling the company's finances from her home in Florida.

The company began to investigate it's finances in November when it discovered Boone had wired herself $10,000 from company accounts. Investigators say she used the money to pay down her personal credit card.

After conducting an internal audit, the company discovered it was missing more than $765,000. Worse yet, the company learned Boone hadn't paid it's federal withholding tax for three years - another $380,000 missing.

On Dec. 18, she reportedly admitted to her now-former employer that she had stolen the money. When Robert Boone learned of the theft, he warned that he was going to leave her. One month later, the family home burst into flames just minutes after witnesses saw Kimberly Boone leave. A subsequent investigation revealed the fire had been set in the bedroom nightstand.

Investigators followed the money, discovering Boone was trying to pay down the mortgages of two homes. She and her husband resided in one home, while Robert Boone's parents lived in the other home.

Kimberly Boone is also reported to have been generous with the money, paying large amounts of her relative's living expenses in $4,000 and $5,000 increments. She also spent lavishly on herself, spending thousands of dollars on cosmetic surgery and shopping sprees.

"We have a great life," Boone told Sheriff's Office investigators after the shooting. "We get along, we don't have any financial difficulties, we have quite a bit of money in the bank."

Now that the money has been seized by federal investigators, the lavish life she lived is over. Kimberly Boone applied for state-provided legal council, claiming herself indigent. Her account balance at the John E. Poke Correctional Facility? $21.66 as of today's date.

She now faces charges of Attempted Homicide for the shooting, Attempted Homicide in connection to the fire at her house. Arson, for setting fire to the residence and Embezzlement. Her next hearing date has been set for August 19, 2009.

Mayor Mark Musselwhite Got His Nude On - Charged With Public Indecency After He Let It All Hang Out At Campground


Read The Arrest Report

Clayton, Georgia (The Weekly Vice) -- Mark Musselwhite, 43 and a former Mayor of Gainesville, Georgia, was arrested last weekend after witnesses at a campground reported a "naked man" walking. When park rangers arrived on scene, they found Musselwhite sitting nude in a chair - wondering what he was doing wrong.

Arresting Officer Brandon C. Walls was alerted by dispatch that several campers and passerby had complained about a naked man sitting around his campsite, in full view of everyone. Walls later produced a report that reads like an episode of Reno: 911.

I OBSERVED A MALE SUBJECT, WHO EARLIER… I HAD IDENTIFIED AS MARK MUSSELWHITE… SITTING NUDE IN A CHAIR IN FRONT OF HIS CAMPER/HORSE TRAILER. I HAD SPOKEN WITH HIM EARLIER IN REFERENCE TO AN ATV HE HAD BEEN RIDING IN THE AREA. HE LOOKED AT US AND SAID HELLO. I ASKED HIM WHAT HE WAS DOING, HE SAID HE WAS JUST SITTING HERE AND ASKED IF THERE WAS A PROBLEM. I DID NOTICE HE WAS DRINKING AND APPEARED VERY INTOXICATED. I ASKED HIM WHY HE DID NOT HAVE ANY CLOTHES ON. HE SAID HE WAS HOT AND HAD BEEN IN THE CREEK. AT THAT POINT HE WANTED TO KNOW WHY WE WERE THERE AND WHAT HE WAS DOING WRONG. I ADVISED HIM THAT WE HAD GOTTEN COMPLAINTS ABOUT A MAN WALKING AROUND NUDE IN THE AREA. STILL NUDE, HE TOLD ME THAT IT WAS NOT HIM.

The report continues with an accusation by Officer Walls that the suspect became belligerent and identified himself as the town's former Mayor. Musselwhite allegedly proceeded to argue with Walls about the validity of an arrest in this situation, but Walls cuffed the nude man and lead him to a squad car without further incident.

The arrest report also mentions a "female subject" at the scene, apparently camping with Musselwhite, who kept out of the argument and was not charged.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Maybe he was inspired by the story of fellow Republican Mark Sanford, who claimed to be doing the same thing along the Appalachian Trail…

Aja And Angela Have Been Here Before - Couple Jailed After Abusing And Neglecting 3 Year Old Boy


Aja Feagin Jail Booking Report
Angela Hammond Jail Booking Report

Tampa, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Aja Feagin, a 24-year-old Tampa woman already on probation for child neglect charges has been arrested again for neglecting and abusing her 3-year-old son. Her live-in girlfriend, Angela Hammond, 26, delivered the beating that alerted day care workers to the continued abuse.

The alleged abuse was uncovered by watchful and concerned day care workers, who reported their suspicions to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. Investigators from the sheriff’s office took the boy to be examined, where medical staff determined the child had been injured on purpose.

Investigators say Hammond beat the boy because he accidentally urinated in his pants.

The sheriff’s office reported that the child had bruises on his back, arms and buttocks. In addition, investigators say that the child had a large, open sore on his bottom, which had gone untreated, leading to infection severe enough to require surgery at Tampa General Hospital.

Further details from the arrest report allege that Hammond became angry after the accident, and beat him with a cotton belt, her bare hand, and then sent him to a corner for a “time out” after his nose started bleeding. Hammond told investigators she has a problem with anger. You think?

According to court records, Feagin was arrested in March of 2008 after daycare workers noticed the child had been abused. She was sentenced to 24 months of probation and ordered to take parenting classes. Hammond was not charged at that time.

Feagin is now incarcerated in the Hillsborough County Jail on charges of child abuse and child neglect. She remains held without bond on the child abuse charge.

Angela Hammond was jailed on two counts of aggravated child abuse, where she also remains without bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Twice now that same couple has been charged with abusing and/or neglecting this little boy. The first time the State of Florida let him down by giving him back to this couple. Let us all hope that this time it doesn’t.

Thumbs up to the alert daycare workers who noticed the continued abuse. Thumbs down to the legal system that kept this boy in danger with little or no follow up.

Carolyn McNeal Earned 58 Failing Grades - Charged With Using School System Passwords To Improve Her Daughter’s Grades


Huntingdon, Pennsylvania (The Weekly Vice) -- Carolyn Maria McNeal, a 39-year-old high school secretary faces 58 charges after using logging into a school computer system to improve her daughter's grades.

According to Huntingdon Police, McNeal used her co worker's passwords to log into a school computer system and change her daughter's grades. She also reportedly used the system to lower the grades of two other students.

Investigators say McNeal changed nearly 200 grades and test scores between May, 2006 and July, 2007. The alleged tampering came to light in October, 2007, when an employee in the high school guidance office discovered conflicting SAT scores. Criminal charges in the case were filed Thursday.

McNeal's daughter's cumulative SAT scores jumped 360 points as a result of the tampering and that the changes came from McNeal's computer, according to court documents.

Employees told investigators they trusted McNeal with their passwords when they were absent due to vacations and sick days. The grades in question have since been corrected.

McNeal now faces felony 29 counts of unlawful use of a computer and 29 felony counts of tampering with public records. Each count is punishable by up to seven years on prison and a $15,000 fine.

Anthony Teifke Had A Fetish - And Child Porn Wouldn’t Satisfy It


Anthony Teifke MySpace Profile

Fond du Lac, Wisconsin (The Weekly Vice) -- Anthony R. Teifke, an 18-year-old high school student from Fond du Lac, Wisconisn, is charged with sexually assaulting a girl under the age of 12. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Friday in Walworth County Court, where he will be formally accused of illegal sexual intercourse with a small child. Police say Teifke knew the girl for some time before he assaulted her.

However, a preliminary investigation by The Weekly Vice uncovered news of another recent arrest and imprisonment, this for accessing child pornography on a library computer. Earlier stories indicate Tiefke was already in jail on those charges when the molestation allegations came to light. Our inquiries also uncovered information that the girl in question may be as young as three.

Altogether, authorities indicate, the teenager could face up to 60 years in prison if convicted on both charges. Teifke is in jail in Walworth County awaiting a $10,000 cash bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Anthony's 45 MySpace friends are virtually silent on the matter (he hasn't had a posted comment since May 10th), but one person left some colorful opinions on his profile's writeboard. There is also a counter that celebrates the number of days "since I got kicked out," which reads 1 year and 10 months, possibly indicating a recent high school expulsion.

The creepiest part of this case may be the song featured on his profile: "Sweet Child O' Mine," by Guns 'N Roses.

David Santuomo - Firefighter Plead Guilty To Slaying Two Dogs To Save Pet Boarding Costs During Vacation

David Santuomo Would Like to Meet Up With YOU
David Santuomo's Facebook

Columbus, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) -- David P. Santuomo, a 43-year-old Columbus firefighter pleaded guilty Wednesday to shooting two dogs so he wouldn't have to pay boarding fees while he and his girlfriend went on vacation.

Franklin County prosecutors say Santuomo took his two dogs to the basement, suspended them from a ceiling pipe and then shot them at least 11 times - all in an effort to avoid costs associated with pet-sitting.

Authorities became aware of the animals' killing in December, 2008 after Santuomo allegedly bragged to coworkers about killing the dogs and then dumping their corpses.

"Fellow firefighters were disgusted by what he did and the Capital Area Humane Society was called to investigate," said county prosecutor Heather Robinson. "The humane society would have taken the animals if Santuomo had asked, and two neighbors had offered to watch the dogs in his absence."

Court documents reveal Santuomo initially lied to investigators, claiming the dogs were suffering because they had consumed anti-freeze. He also reportedly lied to his children and ex-wife about what had happened.

Santuomo, however, changed his story after a necropsy proved that he was lying, Robinson said.

Santuomo pleaded guilty to two counts of animal cruelty and one count of possession of a criminal tool. He was ordered to spend 90 days in jail and pay a $4,500 fine.

Michael Kruse Demands Police Escort To See Rap Artist - Instead Gets Escorted To Jail


Saint Augustine, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Michael Kruse, a 20-year-old Jacksonville man was arrested Sunday after calling 911 to demand a police escort to see Lil' Wayne.

According to the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office, Kruse made two separate calls to 911 demanding that a police escort drive him to Miami to see rap artist Lil' Wayne.

Investigators say 911 operators instructed Kruse not to call unless it was an emergency, however a called back a few hours later with the same request for a police escort.

According to the arrest report, authorities speculated that Kruse might have been under the influence of an unknown substance when he called. (Gee, ya think?)

Kruse eventually got his escort - deputies transported him to the St. Johns County Jail on a charge of making a false 911 report. He was released after posting a $200 bond.

Lahoma Smith Is All That And A Bag Of Chips - Well, Not Really, But One Man Sure Thought So



Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (The Weekly Vice) -- Lahoma Sue Smith, a 36-year-old Oklahoma woman has been sentenced after she reportedly offered to provide oral sex to a man in exchange for a box of Frito-Lay chips.

According to Oklahoma City Police, officers witnessed Smith "trying to catch a date" by flashing her headlights to would-be 'customers'. Patrol officers reportedly followed Smith's vehicle leading them to discover her and a male inside the vehicle engaged in sexual activity.

Investigators say Smith's blouse was open and the man was in the passenger seat pulling up his pants when officers approached the vehicle. Smith told officers that the man asked for her 'company' but didn't have money to pay for her services. A deal was struck between the two - trading oral sex for a box of Frito-Lay chips - at an estimated value of $30.

Smith, who admitted she had been arrested "two or three times" before for prostitution, was charged with prostitution and driving on a suspended license. The man was not arrested.

The woman agreed in court last week to plead no contest to a charge of prostitution. She was fined $1,142.

Bank Robber Michael Prance Caught Red Handed - Literally


Seminole, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Michael Prance, a 53-year-old homeless man in Seminole, Florida has been arrested after he was caught redhanded-- literally-- following a bank robbery.

Police claim Prance is the culprit from a RBC Bank robbery that took place at approximately 1:52pm last Thursday. The authorities combed the surrounding area immediately after, but it was soon determined that the suspect had escaped (and with an unspecified amount of cash.) At 6pm, residents of the town's Caribbean Mobile Home Park called 911 to report a drunk and disorderly interview in the pool area of the park.

According a press release from the Seminole Police Department, "The witness reported that the subject who was stumbling around the pool area, was carrying a bottle of wine and had a red substance on him that resembled dye. When the suspect was approached, he became belligerent towards the complainant. The complainant asked him to leave and the suspect eventually did so."

Prance was arrested almost 90 minutes later outside the Seminole Subs restaurant, after a bus driver called police to report a belligerent passenger. Police claim they found Prance to be in possession of the black satchel the bank robbery suspect had used to store his loot, which was now irreparably stained with red dye, along with all of the missing money. He has been charged with bank robbery and disorderly intoxication.
