Woman unloads drugs and paraphernalia at Pasco jail


Woman unloads foil and syringes at jail

A woman decided against trying to bring contraband into the Pasco jail with her as she was being booked into the facility Thursday night, deputies said, and unloaded drugs and paraphernalia from on — and in — her person.

According to the Pasco Sheriff's Office, Sherese Hutchinson removed "several bags" of methamphetamine, a spoon and syringes, as well as a ball of tin foil. Hutchinson, 27, of Tampa had been a passenger in a car that was pulled over on a traffic stop in Zephyrhills about 9 p.m. and was "nervous, breathing heavily and refusing to sit still," a report states. A deputy found a container of methamphetamine in her pocketbook, authorities said.

Hutchinson previously served time in prison for credit card fraud and possession of methamphetamine, according to the Department of Corrections.

She is charged with giving false identification to law enforcement officers, possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, and failing to appear in court on previous charges. She was in the county jail Friday in lieu of $8,339 bail.


Two arrested, accused of child sex abuse

Two Zephyrhills men were arrested Thursday on accusations they sexually abused children. The cases are not related.

Robert Charles McKissick, 39, of 37840 Daughtery Road is accused of making an 8-year-old girl touch his genitals and pose for nude photos in his trailer. McKissick is a registered sexual offender from Ohio who was convicted of sexual battery in 2000, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. He is charged with lewd and lascivious acts on a juvenile and is being held without bail at the Pasco jail. The alleged incident happened March 11, according to the Pasco Sheriff's Office.

In the second case, Kevin Lee Oberst, 45, of 36138 Begonia Ave. is charged with lewd and lascivious battery. According to the Pasco Sheriff's Office, Oberst had sex with a 14-year-old girl Thursday in Zephyrhills. Oberst was in the Pasco jail Friday in lieu of $10,000 bail.


Man stabbed during brawl, police say

A 25-year-old man is accused of stabbing his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend in the head during a brawl. Daniel J. Warren and the victim fought at Warren's home at 5322 School Road in New Port Richey about 11 p.m. Wednesday, according to the New Port Richey Police Department.

The victim was stabbed twice in the head, once in his shoulder and was sliced on his left arm, a report states. He fled to a hospital, where he spoke with investigators. Warren admitted punching the victim and hitting him with a stick, but denied stabbing him, the report states.

Warren was arrested Thursday and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and giving false identification to a law enforcement officer. He was being held at the Pasco jail Friday in lieu of $10,150 bail.

The victim's medical condition was not available Friday.
