While conducting inspections in Collier County for wholesale and retail licenses, Officers Miller and Thurkettle found a seafood dealer selling both freshwater and saltwater product. After inspecting their paperwork, it was found that the store did not have a retail license to sell saltwater product. Officer Thurkettle had previously issued a written warning for the same violation. The manager of the store was issued a citation for the violation.
Lieutenant Mahoney and Officer Barringer responded to a boating accident involving injuries. A local boater was on-plane and did not see a cable slung just three feet off of the water by contractors hired to perform work on a bridge. The boater made contact with the cable and got thrown out of the boat, ripping the pulling platform off of the boat. His vessel continued up the river and crashed into mangroves. Within a few moments of the accident, another boater saw the man in the water and came to his rescue and called for help.
