Man accused of defrauding immigrant
Eugenio Riviera is already in jail on charges he defrauded immigrants by posing as an authority and getting them to sign over power of attorney to him. Sheriff's investigators have added to the case against him, saying now that Riviera conned another illegal immigrant last May by taking money from the man to help him retrieve his car. Riviera then refused to turn the car over, demanding more cash because he'd had the car's title put in his name, the Sheriff's Office said. The victim said Riviera, 38, wore a police-style uniform, carried a badge and picture ID, and drove a van marked with the words "Emergency Rescue Relief," according to his arrest report from Tuesday. Riviera, of 19612 Owensboro Road, faces new charges of scheme to defraud and criminal use of personal identification. He is being held in the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $24,000 bail.

For information, call Amy Yucuis at (727) 726-1233.
Teacher's aide quits after incident
The Seven Oaks Elementary School instructional assistant who was removed from the classroom amid allegations that she taped students' mouths shut in April has resigned. The employee would not talk to deputies or district officials about the alleged incident, "and she just came in and resigned," assistant superintendent Renalia DuBose said. The Sheriff's Office declined to pursue charges.
The Pasco Education Foundation's Educational Awards Ceremony has already happened. Due to incorrect information supplied to the Times, an upcoming date for the event ran in Wednesday's Top of the Class.
