Neighbor charged in Hudson man's shooting

HUDSON

Neighbor charged in shooting of man

When a sheriff's deputy arrived on Thomas Boulevard late Tuesday to investigate a shooting, Anthony Boglino, according to a report, spontaneously volunteered this information: "I shot him." Haigh Frank Kopoain, Boglino's friend and neighbor, had a bullet in his stomach and was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg.

Boglino, 62, said the incident started as an argument in the yard, the report says.

He was charged with attempted murder and was being held in the Land O'Lakes jail Wednesday without bail. Kopoain, 36, was listed in critical condition.

2 stole to raise bail, pay bills, reports say

A woman accused of stealing hardware from Lowe's wanted to use the money to bail her boyfriend out of jail — but she ended up behind bars herself.

The Sheriff's Office also says Sheila Darlene Green, 8209 Monarch Drive, enlisted her daughter in the scheme.

According to reports, Sheila Green, 50, stuffed $329 worth of hardware into her purse on Tuesday and left the Little Road store without paying. Her daughter, Stacey Lynn Green, 21, returned the merchandise for a gift card, then pawned the gift card, the reports said.

Sheila Green tried the same thing again but was detained by store security, the reports said.

Both women were charged with retail theft and scheme to defraud. Stacey Green was also charged with possession of marijuana after deputies found a small bag in her car.

Sheila Green said she wanted to use the money to pay bills and get her boyfriend out of jail. He was not named in the reports.
