Convinced that one of his neighbors was stealing items from his mailbox, Nicholas Dibble hatched a plot to literally catch the thief red-handed.

Dibble, a 63-year-old Floridian, suspected that his mail was swiped as retaliation by neighbors upset that he had called police about criminal activity in his Bradenton neighborhood. In an interview, Dibble referred to “the drug dealer across the street” and a woman who runs a “house of prostitution next door.”

Dibble, who is disabled, told TSG he has lived in the neighborhood for 25 years, adding that he worked nearly 40 years as a meat cutter for the Publix supermarket chain. Full Story ⤳

Fighting over who gets their sub first?

Nah, it was over a shopping cart:

When Edwin Colon (gray shirt) was trying to pull into a parking space in the parking lot, a pregnant female was loading her child into her vehicle. After she was finished loading the child into the vehicle, she left her cart in the middle of the parking space. Colon asked if the pregnant female would move the cart out of the way so that he could pull his vehicle into the parking spot. The pregnant female then grabbed the cart and shook it and said to Colon `what do you want me to do with it?` The pregnant female then began cursing at Colon who then cursed back at her. Colon got out of his vehicle and went inside of the store and proceeded to the deli to purchase a sandwich.

As Colon was placing his order, an unknown male (blue shirt) walked up to Colon and began putting his face near Colon`s. Colon stated that the male identified himself as the pregnant female`s husband. The unknown male proceeded to push his face into Colon`s poking it with his nose. Colon then pushed the unknown male to create distance. The unknown male then continued to advance towards Colon and attempted to put Colon into a headlock. Colon was in fear of being injured and began to fight back. Once the situation began to escalate, on lookers began to separate Colon from the unknown male. Colon stated that the unknown male and pregnant female left the store and drove off in an unknown SUV.

Adam Barber

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – Call him the ‘Beef Bandit.’

A 33-year-old St. Johns County man was arrested after running out of a Publix on Tuesday. He was charged with walking out with $246 of steaks.

According to SJCO, Adam Barber entered the Publix at Mission Trace off State Route 16 around 7 p.m. In the police report, Barber proceeded “made a direct path toward the meat department and selected several steaks before exiting the store.”

Barber is in jail on $1,500 bond.

“I don’t understand why they would want to do that, I don’t know why you would need $200 worth of steak in the first place,” said local Morgan Miller.

Employees saw Barber leave the store without paying, and when confronted, Barber tried to get away in a vehicle, which was occupied by two other men. Publix employees blocked the vehicle, and Barber then threw the steaks on the ground and ran into the woods. Barber, wearing flip-flips, was seen running on Four Mile Road and was quickly apprehended.

The car’s other occupants, Michael Mahoney and Wayne Manning, remained at the scene and told police that Barber was the one who had stolen the steaks. Barber was taken back to the scene, where Publix employee made a positive ID as the subject who had stolen the steaks.

The incident inside the store was recorded on video, which was turned over to the SJCO.
