Pasco deputies: Evicted stepson left parting gift on the porch

NEW PORT RICHEY – A 19-year-old man was served an eviction notice and led away in handcuffs Monday afternoon after, deputies say, he pushed his stepfather and pooped on the porch.

Jorge Jonathan Cruz-Blanco was mad because he knew the eviction notice was coming, his stepfather told deputies, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. Kenneth Pangborn said his stepson didn't have a job and wasn't going to school, so he was kicking him out. The report said Cruz-Blanco threw things around the house and shoved 72-year-old Pangborn to the ground. Cruz-Blanco stepped outside to wait for deputies when he heard Pangborn calling 911.

When they arrived, Cruz-Blanco explained that he had to use the bathroom while he was waiting, so he pulled down his pants and left the mess on the porch.

Cruz-Blanco, of New Port Richey, was arrested on a charge of battery on a person over 65. He remained Tuesday at the Land O'Lakes jail without bail.

  4. Money is the issue as Hillsborough strains to fix school air conditioners

    K12

    TAMPA — With more than 200 repair requests tumbling in every day, school officials in Hillsborough County are broadening their circle of air conditioning mechanics as they struggle to control a debilitating cycle of breakdowns and sweltering classrooms.

    Hillsborough school officials want to expand the number of contractors who work on broken school air conditioning systems. But it all gets rolled into a workload that has increased by 40 percent since 2011. "With no increase in budget, no increase in equipment and no increase in manpower, and as the equipment gets older and needs more maintenance, this is going to continue to grow," said Robert Weggman, general manager of maintenance."
