Man, 25, is accused of accosting girls

An 8-year-old girl drawing with chalk on a tree in her backyard at 6 p.m. Friday was grabbed by a drunken man who told her she was beautiful, according to a report from the Zephyrhills Police Department.

The man also accosted an 11-year-old, also playing in the backyard, which is communal to half a dozen duplexes on Ridge Street in Zephyrhills.

Witnesses told police they saw Carmen A. Benavideslizama, 25, of Zephyrhills with the girls. When questioned by officers, he admitted he told them they were "bonita," the report states.

He is charged with kidnapping and two counts of battery. He is being held at the county jail in lieu of $50,300 bail.

Wallet left in cab leads to suspect

After stealing a laptop computer, camera and a check book, a thief called a taxi for a ride back to his motel – leaving his driver's license behind in the cab, deputies say.

According to authorities, Ralph Incardona, a 45-year-old unemployed man from Wesley Chapel, broke into a house on Sunnidale Drive in Zephyrhills on April 4, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

He faces several charges — such as armed burglary and resisting arrest — and is being held in the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $62,600 bail.

Disturbance outside store leads to jail

With a quart bottle of cold beer inside a brown bag, a woman stood in front of an Amscot at lunchtime Friday, asking customers for money in exchange of having sex with her, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

The deputy who arrived on the scene said Carol Ann McCaleb, 50, frequently does this and he's personally given her four trespass warnings before. The report said McCaleb was belligerent, yelling that she wanted to kill the deputy and everyone else, the report says.

McCaleb, who lives in Port Richey, is charged with trespass after a warning, assault on an officer and disorderly intoxication. Her bail is $400.

Son is charged after argument over money

A 23-year-old man, upset that his mother refused to give him money, held a knife in one hand and a golf club in the other, threatening that if his mother left the house, "you will get it," according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

The report says Andrew C. Forbes argued with his mother at 9:30 a.m. Friday in the home they share. She was able to escape the house.

Forbes is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is being held in jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.
