Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies, along with officers from the Lake Hamilton Police Department, the Haines City Police Department, will assist in escorting Army Staff Sergeant John Reiners’ funeral procession following the 11:00 am, Monday, February 22, 2010, funeral service. The service will be held at the Northridge Church, 2250 State Road 17 S, Haines City.
Sergeant Reiners was killed last week while on patrol in Afghanistan.
The procession will travel north along State Road 17 (Scenic Highway) from the church then east along State Road 544, then north onto 30th Street, and finally west on Grace Avenue where the procession will travel to Forest Hill Cemetery for the interment.

Traffic will be interrupted as the procession travels.

Earlier today, Saturday, February 20, 2010, PCSO deputies, Lake Hamilton, Winter Haven and Haines City Police Officers assisted in escorting Sergeant Reiners’ remains from the Winter Haven Airport to Oak Ridge Funeral Care, 1001 E. Grace Avenue, Haines City.

On February 3, 2010, Polk County Sheriff’s deputies arrested two men known as “traveling scam artists” after investigation revealed they were doing faulty home repairs and paving work in Polk County and other jurisdictions.
Sheriff Judd issues another warning to citizens that traveling scam artists like these are still out there.
“If someone approaches you offering to fix anything on your home, or to re-pave your driveway, check all of their credentials, verify they are employed with a legitimate business, and ensure they have the proper licensing,” says Sheriff Judd. “Use the Better Business Bureau website http://www.bbb.org, or check with the Polk County Tax Collectors at 534-4700. If a company is operating in Polk County, they are required to have an Occupational License.”
This most recent warning comes as a result of Polk County Sheriff’s detectives spotting several men from out-of-state driving around the Lakeland area, attempting to solicit paving work from residents and local businesses on a cash payment basis. The traveling scam artists were stopped by detectives and informed that they are now under investigation by PCSO and the Lakeland Police Department. The men were told to leave the county, and if they are caught committing fraudulent work in Polk County, they will immediately be arrested for fraud.
If you or someone you know has been the victim of fraudulent paving work or home repairs, please contact local law enforcement immediately.

Today at approximately 9:04 a.m., Osceola County Sheriff’s deputies responded to 2328 Andrews Valley Drive in Poinciana in reference to a burglary. Upon arrival, deputies observed the living room window broken and extensive damage to the inside of the residence. One 14-year-old female was immediately taken into custody and deputies searched for additional juveniles near Poinciana High School. For a short time, the school was on lock down because two of the juveniles were seen running across the football field. Aviation and patrol deputies located the remaining 3 juveniles they were all taken into custody. Based on the information they provided, all six juveniles were arrested and charged with Burglary to an Unoccupied Dwelling. They were booked into the Osceola County Juvenile Detention Center.
