Police say woman stabbed boyfriend

A 29-year-old woman is in jail on charges she stabbed her boyfriend with a hunting knife.

According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Jamie M. Hosein sliced her boyfriend's arm with the knife a little after 6 a.m. Thursday at her house on 8626 Leo Kidd Ave.

Man says he stole coins for drug money

Adam L. Carroll, a man with no money and a drug addiction to feed, pedaled around town on his bicycle with a pry bar, breaking into vending machines to get the coins, according to a report from the New Port Richey Police Department.

Carroll – a 29-year-old unemployed roofer from 6042 Countrymen Lane – hit machines at two laundromats, a Ramada Inn and a Valu-Lodge over the past month, the report states.

He caused hundreds of dollars of damage, but only got about $100 in change, the report says.

He was arrested Thursday and faces charges of three counts of burglary, one count of criminal mischief, one count of maliciously molesting a coin-operated machine and seven counts of molesting a coin-operated machine with larceny.

Carroll remained Friday at the county jail in lieu of $26,350 bail. According to his arrest report, Carroll admitted to the crimes and said he did it because he needed drug money.
