Tea time interrupted

7:22 a.m. — 1500 block of West Granada Boulevard, Ormond Beach

Disturbance. A 35-year-old Georgia woman called police over an altercation that began over two hot cups of water.

Police report that the woman told officers she arrived at a local gas station, per her usual routine, to grab two hot cups of water to make her morning tea. As she was leaving the gas station, the cashier shouted at her and a verbal argument ensued, according to a police incident report. The woman said they both insulted each other, but that the cashier made racist comments.

The woman said she attempted to give the cups of water back, but that the cashier only took one. As she was leaving, the cashier took a photo of her and in her anger, the woman said she poured the other water cup on the floor before going back to argue with the cashier, at which point a witness reached out his hand to stop her from getting close. 

The cashier's story was similar, with the exception that she claimed the woman was the one to make racist claims against her. Because the cashier was not hit by any water, police determined no crime occurred.

The woman was trespassed from the property.

Burglary. Police responded to a home after a 31-year-old Ormond Beach woman discovered she was missing $1,200 and 3.5 grams of her medical marijuana, which she stored in a jewelry box.

The woman said she asked her mother if she had taken the money and marijuana, and her 65-year-old mother denied doing so, saying she had thought her daughter had come home around 2 or 3 a.m, according to a police incident report. When they checked the doorbell camera, they discovered an old friend had approached the front of the home twice during that time period.

The woman told police the friend had asked her if she was willing to sell her medical marijuana, though she said she'd never sold it. But, he knew where she kept it. 

Police spoke to the friend, who said he had stopped by the home. He claimed he did go inside the home's garage and "said hello to the dogs," before hanging up the phone on police.

The woman wished to press charges.
