Man chose Dunedin roof for lewd behavior, deputies say


Man chose roof for lewd act, deputies say

A homeless man was arrested Thursday, accused of masturbating on the roof of the Pink Panther Nightclub and Showbar, according to a Sheriff's Office report. Bryan Treloar, 42, was arrested by a Pinellas County sheriff's deputy on charges of lewd and lascivious behavior, loitering and prowling about 11:30 a.m. Four employees of an adjacent business witnessed the act, the report said. Treloar has been arrested several times in Pinellas County over the past three years, including arrests in May on charges of assault on a law enforcement officer and trespassing. He was in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $750 bail.


Business accused of illegal gambling

Pinellas County sheriff's detectives raided what they called an illegal Internet gambling business Thursday afternoon, seizing 41 personal computers, a laptop, a shuttle bus and $1,500 in cash. The raid wrapped up an eight-month investigation that began after a tipster told the Sheriff's Office that illegal gambling was taking place at the Endless Fun Entertainment and Cyber Center, 38541 U.S. 19 N. Patrons would purchase a game card, put money on it and use it to access what the Sheriff's Office described as "Vegas-style" games. No arrests were made because the business owners were not there when the search warrant was executed, said Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Cecilia Barreda.

Goodwill store ready for shoppers

Oldsmar's new 25,000-square-foot Goodwill superstore will have a soft opening at 9 a.m. today and an official grand opening at 9 a.m. Saturday. The Saturday celebration will feature free Krispy Kreme doughnuts and balloons while supplies last. There also will be special prices on select items in the facility's 80,000-item inventory. The store, which sells new and used products, is at 3929 Tampa Road.


Yes, we're embarrassed. The headline over the Palm Harbor University and Dunedin graduation photos in Thursday's paper should have read: "Joy and Remembrance." Unfortunately, remembrance was misspelled. We apologize for the error.

  2. Why the Lightning would consider trading Jonathan Drouin

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — This summer, the Lightning could trade one of its most dynamic young players ever.

    Tampa Bay Lightning left wing Jonathan Drouin (27) celebrates with his team on the bench after beating Chicago Blackhawks goalie Scott Darling (33) to score his second goal of the period and to tie the score at 4 to 4 during second period action at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Monday evening (03/27/17).
  3. Why the Lightning should keep Jonathan Drouin

    Keep him.

    Jonathan Drouin is live bait. The Lightning is ready to run the hook through him and cast him out there again. Drouin has enough talent for the Lightning to meet some defensive needs in a deal.

    Keep him.

  4. Romano: When a life is more valuable than an arrest

    Public Safety

    Before examining the details, let's propose a question:

    This is a handout request to accompany school portraits of Joey Boylan, who died of a drug overdose and who is being written about in John Romano's column for Sunday. We'd like to run a mug of Joey with the column. Any of the first three attached pictures would be fine to use. We don't need them all. Just pick your favorite portrait and put that in the system. Thanks.
