Today was an interesting day in Oldsmar, Fl. Some nut, whom lives just up the street from me, decided he would terrorize the city. He began by inserting a letter with white powder in his neighbor’s mailbox. Then he hit the Enterprise rental car facility, Holiday Inn Express, and post office with fake grenades and suspicious packages. You can read all about it in the next blog posting… when they catch this guy.
Sheriff’s deputies identified the man they think is responsible as David Vice, a 41-year-old married father of four. He is wanted on at least two felony charges, but deputies had not found him by late Friday.
“I want him out of circulation,” Beverland said. “He’s dangerous, not only to himself, but his family.”
Residents say Vice has spread fear in their Oldsmar neighborhood, the Preserve at Cypress Lakes, for several years.
And Vice is no stranger to authorities.
On Sept. 11, 2004, he rammed his car into a gate at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, authorities said. He was charged with fleeing and eluding a police officer and later received probation, according to Hillsborough court records.
“I’ve been saying for months that something was wrong with him and everybody laughed at me,” said homeowner association president Derrick Cain. “Now I guess they know to take him seriously.”
