BSO arrests two Deerfield youths for series of ATM robberies

Posted on 28 January 2016 by LeslieM

A third person is being sought

On Monday Jan. 25, a Broward Sheriff’s Office surveillance operation paid off when three men were spotted loitering near a Pompano Beach bank. Between mid-December and mid-January at least five robberies at walk-up and drive-through ATMs were reported in Deerfield Beach and Pompano Beach, prompting the BSO’s VIPER response team to set up the surveillance post.

The robbers’ method was for two of the men to startle victims and hold them at gunpoint while demanding cash from the ATM; they would then flee with the loot.

As the VIPER team approached the three loiterers on Monday, they fled on foot. Two 17-year-old male residents of Deerfield Beach were apprehended, while a third escaped and is being sought. The two in custody have admitted committing at least five robberies, and were planning another one when interrupted by the BSO.

Anyone believing they have been victimized by these robbers, or with information leading to the third robber, should contact the BSO robbery detectives at 954-321-4270.

Barricaded man kills two people and himself, critically wounds two more at Deerfield R.V. Park

Posted on 10 February 2012 by LeslieM


  • Adult male (DECEASED)
  • One male child. Age 9 (DECEASED)
  • Adult female (INJURED)
  • Male child. Age 7 (INJURED)


  • adult male (DECEASED)

Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) investigators are trying to determine why a man fatally shot another man Thursday night, Feb. 9 at a quiet Deerfield Beach R.V. park before he barricaded himself inside an R.V. and attempted to kill his family. When BSO SWAT medics were able to get inside the R.V., they found the suspect and a 9-year-old boy dead. A woman and a 7-year-old boy were critically injured.

The bizarre ordeal, which lasted more than seven hours, started around 6:20 p.m. BSO was called to the Highland Woods R.V. Park after someone reported a shooting with a possible injured person. When deputies arrived, they saw a man lying unresponsive on the pavement. Inside a nearby R.V.just feet away from the victim, the suspected shooter said he was holding a woman hostage and that he would kill her if they approached. Initially unable to get to the injured man on the ground, deputies tried to convince the suspect to release the hostage and surrender peacefully. He refused. SWAT paramedics successfully extracted the shooting victim from the scene and determined that he had died from his injuries.

Around 7:30 p.m., a woman emerged from the R.V. unharmed. She told detectives that the suspect’s wife and two sons were with him. For hours, the SWAT Team tried to make contact with the suspect, to no avail. All the while, Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue paramedics were staged nearby in the event injured hostages would need medical attention. The SWAT Team, with the help of Coral Springs Police Dept.’s SWAT Team, made entry around 1:30 a.m. Friday and discovered the victims. SWAT medics and BSFR paramedics rendered aid to the injured woman and boy before transporting them to North Broward Medical Center and Broward General Medical Center, respectively. Both were in critical condition. BSO Criminal Investigations Division detectives are investigating to determine what circumstances led to the attacks. They believe the suspect was a stranger to the shooting victim.

Trio Busted for Residential Rip-Off, Oct. 5

Posted on 26 October 2011 by LeslieM

Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives have caught three criminals who burglarized two homes Oct. 5 as the homeowners slept in their beds.

Two of the suspects were caught on video concealing their faces and spray painting the lens of a surveillance camera on the patio of a Deerfield Beach home. Then they slipped inside and stole $30,000 dollars in jewelry, electronics, checks, and other property. Detectives believe the teens possibly intended to steal the family Corvette but the dog scared them away before they could take it. Detectives recovered some of the stolen property, but they have yet to find Barbara Rysavy’s wedding ring. Earlier in the night, they crept into a Tamarac woman’s home as she slept, and stole a computer and a 2008 BMW. They drove the car to the Deerfield Beach burglary and later abandoned it.

The burglars, Brianna Anderson, David Nicholas and a 17-year-old suspect have been charged with multiple counts including burglary, grand theft, grand theft auto and criminal mischief. The 17-year-old was also charged with violation of probation. After the burglaries, detectives got a crucial clue when Anderson tried to cash checks stolen from the homeowners. She was charged with two counts of uttering a forged check.

Anyone with additional information about these suspects, the location of the missing wedding ring or the other unsolved burglaries can contact Det. Scott Nida at at (954) 480-4316, Det. Mike Colantuno at (954) 720-2225 or report information anonymously to Crime Stoppers of Broward County at (954) 493-TIPS (8477) or online at www.browardcrimestoppers.org.

Child bitten by pit bull in Deerfield Beach

Posted on 23 October 2011 by LeslieM

BSO deputies are investigating a child bitten by a dog at the 300 block of SE 1 Street. The eight-year-old boy was outside his residence when a loose pit bull attacked him. As the child ran into his house, the dog chased him inside. Family members shooed-off the dog and first-arriving BSO deputies gave chase on foot after the dog. They ran after the dog for about two blocks, and as they reached the pit bull, it was attempting to attack another dog. Deputies confined the pit bull until Broward County Animal Care and Regulation workers arrived and removed the dog. The child was treated by Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue Deerfield Beach units then airlifted via BSO Air Rescue to Broward General Medical Center, arriving at the hospital at 7:19 p.m. Sunday. The child was reported to be conscious and breathing and sustained a laceration to the face and multiple bites. Injuries are non life-threatening. The call was received at 6:40 p.m.

Deerfield Fire Rescue sworn into BSO Friday night

Posted on 28 September 2011 by LeslieM

The Deerfield Beach Fire Rescue Department will join the Broward Sheriff’s Office family Friday evening after its 160 firefighters are sworn in by Sheriff Al Lamberti.

“We’re pleased and honored to have the men and women of Deerfield Beach Fire Rescue join us in continuing to deliver a high level of service to the community,” Sheriff Lamberti said. The Deerfield Beach City Commission unanimously supported the merger. “The city’s leaders should be commended for their vision and commitment to writing a new chapter in public safety service for their residents.”

The merger will take effect officially at 8 a.m. Saturday, October 1 when the uniforms and trucks reflect the change.

“As the City of Deerfield Beach expands its partnership with BSO, we are also laying extraordinary groundwork as a role model for regionalization. In the end, the winners will be the city’s more than 77,000 residents, who will benefit from the wealth of resources that this merger will bring to our community,” Mayor Peggy Noland said.

The $20.5 million annual contract includes a value-added savings of $2.9 million for the city. Part of the plan includes increased staffing at Fire Station 75, which is the sole station on the beach, and plans for opening a sixth fire station to better serve the southwest section of the city, including the Crystal Lakes area.

“The merger underscores the city’s commitment to streamlined efficiency and excellent service provision and builds upon a well-established partnership that we’ve enjoyed with BSO for more than 20 years,” Vice-Mayor Marty Popelsky said.

Deerfield Beach and Hillsboro Beach will be the newest addition to the Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue family. They join Dania Beach, Cooper City, Lauderdale Lakes, Pembroke Park, West Park and Weston as municipalities served. Under the leadership of Fire Chief Neal de Jesus, BSFR also provides fire-rescue services to Broward County’s Port Everglades, Ft. Lauderdale – Hollywood International Airport and unincorporated areas of the county including the western Broward I-75/Alligator Alley corridor through Everglades Regional Fire Station 106. BSFR also provides regional services countywide through dedicated air rescue, Hazardous Materials Team and Technical Rescue Team response, as well as fire marshal and regional logistics services.
