Clearwater man accused of molesting 6-year-old girl


Man accused of molesting 6-year-old girl

A 30-year-old Clearwater man was arrested Friday morning on charges of sexual battery on a 6-year-old girl. Authorities say Jeffrey Proctor of 1439 Jasmine Way molested the girl on several occasions at his home over the last five months. Clearwater police detectives received information that led to the arrest. Proctor knew the girl, police said. They did not release information about her relationship to him to protect her identity. Proctor is being held without bail at the Pinellas County Jail. According to Florida Department of Corrections records, Proctor served a little more than two years in prison from 1997 to 2000 for committing robbery with a deadly weapon.

Charges include eating marijuana

Marijuana has a reputation of giving users the munchies. Authorities say a Clearwater man took that idea to a whole new level Thursday night as he tried to get rid of some weed. He ate it, they say. Todd A. Mouzon, 33, of 1201 Amble Lane, was arrested Thursday and faces felony charges of marijuana possession, driving with a suspended license, fleeing and eluding a police officer and tampering with physical evidence. He was released from the Pinellas County Jail on Friday morning after posting $17,000 bail. Clearwater police say they pursued Mouzon on Thursday night because he was driving erratically at the intersection of Drew Street and Lake Avenue. While attempting to get him to pull over, an officer said he saw Mouzon consume a "green leafy substance" and throw three bags of marijuana (totaling approximately 30 grams) out the window. Police say Mouzon was seen eating a small amount of marijuana.

  1. What you need to know for Thursday, May 25


    Catching you up on overnight happenings, and what you need to know today.

    To catch a ring of poachers who targeted Florida's million-dollar alligator farming industry, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission set up an undercover operation. They created their own alligator farm, complete with plenty of real, live alligators, watched over by real, live undercover wildlife officers. It also had hidden video cameras to record everything that happened. That was two years ago, and on Wednesday wildlife officers announced that they arrested nine people on  44 felony charges alleging they broke wildlife laws governing alligator harvesting, transporting eggs and hatchlings across state lines, dealing in stolen property, falsifying records, racketeering and conspiracy. The wildlife commission released these photos of alligators, eggs and hatchlings taken during the undercover operation. [Courtesy of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission]

  3. Take 2: Some fear Tampa Bay Next transportation plan is TBX redux


    TAMPA — For many, Wednesday's regional transportation meeting was a dose of deja vu.

    The Florida Department of Transportation on Monday announced that it was renaming its controversial Tampa Bay Express plan, also known as TBX. The plan will now be known as Tampa Bay Next, or TBN. But the plan remains the same: spend $60 billion to add 90 miles of toll roads to bay area interstates that are currently free of tolls.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The students came from all over Pinellas County, some enduring hot bus rides to a school far from home. At first, they barely knew what to call themselves. All they knew was that they were in for a challenge.

  5. Flower boxes on Fort Harrison in Clearwater to go, traffic pattern to stay


    I travel Fort Harrison Avenue in Clearwater often and I've noticed that the travel lanes have been rerouted to allow for what looks like flower boxes that have been painted by children. There are also a few spaces that push the travel lane to the center that have no boxes. Is this a permanent travel lane now? It …
