Deerfield Beach Man arrested for impersonating an officer

Posted on 02 February 2021 by Rachel Galvin

A man impersonating a Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy was arrested this past Saturday, Jan. 30, in Pompano Beach.
 
At approximately 9:32 a.m., Jan 27, Broward County Regional Communications received a call in reference to a suspicious person at 2200 S.W. 10th St. in Deerfield Beach. 
 
BSO deputies responded to the location and met with an employee who advised a male, later identified as Carlwell Wilson, approached her in a dark colored van. Wilson proceeded to identify himself as a BSO deputy and quickly displayed a badge while wearing a white T-shirt with an emblem on it that caused the victim to believe he was a law enforcement officer and not free to leave.
 
BSO Deerfield Beach detectives obtained a warrant for Wilson’s arrest on charges of Impersonating a Police Officer and False Imprisonment. Wilson was arrested in Pompano Beach on Jan 30., by BSO Pompano Beach District deputies who transported him to the Main Jail where he remains in custody on a $300,000 bond.

Living on Faith– JD Danner Keeps Rockin’

Posted on 29 January 2021 by JLusk

By Rachel Galvin

Heart and soul, JD Danner brings her rock & roll spirit to every performance she does. At her latest performance, on Jan. 24 at Art’s Garage in Delray Beach, she did not disappoint. The room was packed to hear her belt out her popular original songs and many covers, from “Jolene” to “Son of a Preacher Man.” She even brought smiles to faces by playing the Mary Tyler Moore Show theme song. For 90 minutes, this songstress definitely rocked the house.

At the concert, she sang her newest single. Entitled “Nothing But Faith,” it was inspired by life under quarantine. The solitude and isolation coupled with the warmth of an Easter-time Zoom call with family led her to write this new piece. She hopes the piece brings a sense of hope. That is why she is letting the world listen for free. Her new single is currently available to hear on her website, www.jddanner.com. You can hear more songs from this Boca-Raton singer there as well.

By the way, Art’s Garage has music every weekend. Grab a specialty cocktails and get ready to rock. They require masks and employ sanitation practices. For more information, visit www.artsgarage.org.
