Hillsborough detectives find sex offender who was on the lam


Sex offender on lam is found

Hillsborough County sheriff's detectives on Thursday arrested a registered sex offender who had cut a GPS monitoring bracelet off his ankle and left his registered address two weeks ago.

While on the lam, Dennis Leon Jamieson twice fled from Tampa police officers while in a stolen vehicle, a sheriff's report said.

Officials got consent to search his mother's house in Plant City, and a police dog found Jamieson, 31, hiding under a pile of clothes. He was charged with fleeing, obstructing an officer, grand theft and other charges.

Trio sought in theft of ring

Tampa police are looking for three people who stole a $79,900 ring from Old Northeast Jewelers in International Mall.

At 5 p.m. Monday, two people entered the store together and asked to see a watch, a report said. While the couple distracted the salesman, a third person took the ring from a case and left. The couple left soon after.

Anyone with any information can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477.

Marijuana grow house raided

Sheriff's detectives seized 22 marijuana plants and 46.7 pounds of marijuana Tuesday at a grow house in Seminole Heights.

An anonymous tip led detectives to the home at 7215 N Duncan Ave. The marijuana has an estimated street value of about $50,000.

Pedro M. Millares, 49, faces marijuana trafficking and other charges.
