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.

Starting at 10 a.m., closed will be Tarpon Avenue between Alternate U.S. 19 and Ring Avenue and Court Street between Alternate U.S. 19 and Safford Avenue (next to Pinellas Trail). Westbound Tarpon Avenue traffic will be detoured north and south on Ring Avenue. There also will be no parking in the city lots on Tarpon Avenue between Ring and Alternate U.S. 19, on Hibiscus Street between Orange and Tarpon avenues, or on Court Street between Alternate 19 and Safford Avenue.


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.
