Stock Island Fla Dec 26 2010 – A man who worked as a Security Guard at a Stock Island marina has been arrested for burglarizing a business he was supposed to be guarding.
The incident took place on August 24th at the Old Island Marina on Shrimp Road, Stock Island. A witness told Deputy Todd Jones and Detective Juan Llera he saw 32 year old Peter Ortiz leaving a business at the marina carrying a Rubbermaid tub. When the witness confronted Ortiz, he returned the tub to the business he took it from.
The owner of the business told Detective Llera he keeps several guns in a Rubbermaid container. He said the container was inside his business when he checked it, but he could tell it had been rummaged through.
Ortiz worked as a nighttime security guard, and had access to keys for the business. A warrant was issued for his arrest and on Wednesday, he was arrested and charged with burglary and grand theft. He was booked into jail.
Baxter County AR Dec 26 2010 Three people were found dead Friday morning from gunshot wounds in what Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery said appeared to be a murder-suicide.
Montgomery said Baxter County deputies and an Arkansas State Police trooper responded to a residence at 124 Forest Hills Drive in the Robinson Point area just after 9 a.m. Friday after 911 dispatchers received a call from a concerned neighbor.
Montgomery said the neighbor checked on the house and saw someone lying on the floor in a pool of blood and then called 911.
The officers made forced entry into the residence and found three bodies, each of whom appeared to have suffered gunshot wounds.
Preliminary investigation determined that the three were a man and his wife, who lived at the residence, and the woman’s son, who was visiting from out of state.
Montgomery said evidence at the scene suggests that the husband shot and killed his wife and her son, and then shot and killed himself. The investigation, however, is still continuing, Montgomery said.
A handgun was found at the scene, as well as spent shell casings and other items, the sheriff said.
“There were no signs of forced entry.” Montgomery said. “We’re still early in the investigation, but it does appear to be a murder-suicide.”
Montgomery said the bodies have been sent to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Little Rock for autopsy.
Authorities identified the victims as Harry D. Svensson, 52, of 124 Forest Hills Drive, his wife, Louise Svensson, 56, and her son, Victor A. Robles, 20, of Villa Parks, Ill
