Pair accused of copper theft plot

A man and woman from north Pinellas County are accused of trying to steal $1,200 worth of copper fittings from a Lowe's in New Port Richey, planning to sell it for scrap to support their prescription drug addiction, authorities say. Jamie Canesa and Kelli Marie Kramer were seen Monday filling a cloth tote bag with the copper parts at the Lowe's at 8312 Little Road, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report said. They also picked up two rolls of copper tubing but abandoned them in the garden center after being unable to conceal them, the report said. Canesa, 19, of Palm Harbor and Kramer, 18, of Tarpon Springs were charged with retail theft. He remained at the jail Tuesday, while she was released on $2,000 bail.

Dunedin will hold a public meeting on its master plan for Highland Park today at 6:30 p.m., at Dunedin Community Center, 1920 Pinehurst Road.

Discuss sidewalk for Pinehurst Road

The public is invited to a meeting Thursday with Dunedin's public works staff to discuss a proposal to replace the sidewalk on Pinehurst Road with an 8-foot-wide sidewalk and multiuse trail. The exact location of the trail hasn't been finalized, so the city is inviting residents to discuss the scope and time line of construction that could potentially take place outside their homes.
