New Port Richey couple accused of credit card fraud, theft


Couple accused of credit card fraud, theft

Patrick and Angela Yglesias are accused of stealing more than $28,000 from Angela's father. The couple is also accused of stealing from Angela's ex-husband, although the amount was not released by authorities. The husband and wife are accused of stealing Angela Yglesias' father's debit card and also fraudulently obtaining a credit card in the victim's name. They are also accused of getting another credit card in Angela Yglesias's ex-husband's name. The investigation was prompted when the victims discovered the transactions and contacted authorities. The duo, of 6351 Langston Ave., New Port Richey, were arrested Thursday. Both face several charges of criminal use of personal identification information, fraudulent use of a credit card and scheme to defraud. Both are being held in the Pasco jail in lieu of bail. Hers is $62,000; his is $72,000.


Residents should mail in surveys

Pasco County and the National Research Center are urging residents who received the printed Pasco County National Citizen Survey to mail in their completed survey as soon as possible. The results will be tabulated next week and officials want to make sure all opinions are included. Officials mailed 1,200 surveys to Pasco County residents and only 336 have been mailed back in. The Pasco County Online Citizen Survey will stay open until midnight Wednesday. More than 600 residents have taken the online survey so far but officials want to hear from more. The survey includes questions on service areas and quality of service delivered. County commissioners will use the opinions and ideas shared on the surveys to assist with the budget decisions and strategic planning. In March, the county will hold three community meetings to obtain input on the issues facing Pasco County and the results of the surveys. Go to the County's Web page devoted to the "Outreach" campaign at www.Bringing and take the survey. Additional information can be found on the County's Facebook page.

  2. Romano: One person, one vote is not really accurate when it comes to Florida


    Imagine this:

    Your mail-in ballot for the St. Petersburg mayoral election has just arrived. According to the fine print, if you live on the west side of the city, your ballot will count as one vote. Meanwhile, a ballot in St. Pete's northeast section counts for three votes.
