Two arrests are just part of man's bad week


two arrests are just part of bad week for man, 19

It's been a rough week for 19-year-old Robert Anthony Silva. On Friday, the Dade City Police Department arrested Silva and charged him in a burglary to a home in the 36000 block of White Fir Way on June 11. In addition to stealing numerous electronic items, the burglar also stole the victim's car, a 2002 Chrysler Concord. The vehicle was stopped last week by the Pasco County Sheriff's Office after the driver crashed the car and fled. Silva also was arrested this week by Zephyrhills Police Department for an unrelated charge of armed robbery. Silva was interviewed by detectives at the Pasco County Detention Center and was also implicated in a Dade City burglary on June 7. Silva was charged with five felony offenses and booked at the detention center.

Woman accused in prescription fraud

Dade City police arrested a 32-year-old woman on a charge of prescription fraud Thursday. Police say Alyce Nicole Heath was arrested at RX Pharmacy, 14306 Seventh St., after she tried to pick up a prescription for Xanax in the name of someone who died in February. An anonymous caller tipped off the pharmacist, who called police when Heath showed up for pills. Police said Heath told them she was a friend of the patient and had previously picked up drug prescriptions for him before his death. She was aware that refills existed on the current prescription. Heath was charged with two felony offenses and booked at the detention center.


• New Port Richey police arrested John Wayne Dorminy, the man accused of burglarizing Select Physical Therapy. An item Friday gave the wrong arresting agency.

• Elizabeth Maddern said her legally blind neighbor does pick up after her service dog. A story Friday was incorrect on that point.

  1. Editorial: Turn the heat up on AC problem in Hillsborough schools


    Hillsborough County School District students do not want to hear that their buildings are decrepit. They do not want to hear that Florida's legislators are complicit. All they want to hear is the sweet sound of a classroom air conditioner kicking in at full power. Anything less creates uncomfortably hot classrooms and …

    Superintendent Jeff Eakins and the current Hillsborough County School Board did not create this air conditioning mess, but they own it now.
