Cash snatched

1 p.m. — 1500 block of West Granada Boulevard, Ormond Beach

Petit theft. A 69-year-old DeLand woman called police after she mistakenly left $100 at the cash register of a local big box store.

Police report that the woman was paying for groceries and a suitcase when she asked the cashier to give her $100 in cash back, as she was about to go on a trip and needed the cash, according to a police incident report. The woman, however, became distracted and left the register without taking her cash.

When she realized she had left the money behind, she spoke to a store supervisor who reviewed surveillance footage and saw that the cash was taken by the couple who had been in line behind her. 

The woman wished to press charges.

Battery touch/strike. A 34-year-old Ormond Beach woman was trying to pull into the parking lot of a local Mexican restaurant to pick up food when she encountered a driver with road rage.

The woman told police that there was heavy traffic on Granada Boulevard and that she was trying to get over to the outside lane, merging when she saw an opening, according to a police incident report. The driver behind her, a woman wearing blue scrubs, became upset and followed her into the parking lot where she began to yell at the victim. When the woman exited her car, the driver backed out of the spot next to her and threw a soda can at her back, the woman told police while she was trying to get her kids out of the back seat.

The driver then left the parking lot, and the woman went inside to get her food.

After having eaten, the woman thought about the encounter again and decided to call police. She wished to press charges. 

Because police were unable to obtain any surveillance footage of the parking lot and the woman wasn't able to provide tag information for the driver's vehicle, police suspended the case.
