A South Florida woman wasn’t happy with the way things turned out with a man she met on a dating app, so she faked threatening text messages to numerous people to get a restraining order against him, prosecutors said. Vanessa Restrepo, 25, faces a number of charges, including writing and sending threats to kill or injure, perjury, and aggravated stalking. In bond court Tuesday, prosecutors detailed how Restrepo allegedly crafted text messages to make it seem like she was being harassed and threatened after going on several dates with this man. The texts included messages such as, “We followed your sister to work,” “Even when I get to jail I’ll have people get to you,” and “Not afraid of jail.” Restrepo also allegedly sent her friend — who Restrepo was living with at a Coral Springs apartment — the ominous text messages. They both reported the messages to police and obtained a restraining order against the man from the dating app, prosecutors said. The text messages continued, and police arrested the man for violating the order only to learn he wasn’t the person sending the texts. When investigators dug into the cellphone numbers and IP addresses, it turned out the texts were coming from the address where Restrepo was living and Restrepo’s mom’s house, police said. Restrepo was also accused of threatening the judge that handled the restraining order as well as an attorney representing the man from the dating app. She’s being held on just under a $100,000 bond and will have to undergo a mental health evaluation. Restrepo has an ongoing history of similar behavior against men she has been with in any type of relationship, prosecutors told the judge in bond court. According to an arrest warrant filed from Broward County, Restrepo has accused multiple men throughout the years of stalking her and sending her threatening text messages.
A South Florida ice cream shop owner is facing multiple charges including video voyeurism after authorities said he put a camera in the store’s bathroom to film a 17-year-old employee. Sergio Khorosh, 55, was arrested Thursday on charges of aggravated stalking, video voyeurism and impersonating a law enforcement officer, Broward County jail records showed. Khorosh, the owner of “Moo Moo Scoops” in Coral Springs inside the Coral Square Mall, appeared in bond court Friday where Judge Tabitha Blackmon detailed the charges against him. Sergio Khorosh According to the judge, Khorosh filmed a 17-year-old employee in the shop’s bathroom and then stalked her at her new job and at home. An arrest report said the teen had found a black USB cellphone charger plugged into the wall and facing a toilet in the employee bathroom that had a camera in it. According to the arrest report, Khorosh had hired the teen in July and would tell her how beautiful she was and at one point, kissed her forehead and told her he loved her. After the teen told Khorosh she didn’t want to work for him anymore, he sent her multiple text messages in which he professed his love for her, threatened her and showed photos of gifts he wanted to give her, the report said. Khorosh also allegedly harassed the teen and her family, and at one point told her he was a deputy chief with the Broward Sheriff’s Office and would lock her and her family up in jail, the report said. He also claimed to have a K-9 that he would let “shred” her and her family, the report said. Khorosh, who lives in Lighthouse Point, was given a $76,000 bond and ordered to stay away from the alleged victim. Blackmon appointed a public defender for him.

A Coral Springs teen is facing serious charges after police say he shot his girlfriend and killed her cousin.

An alleged drug dealer is facing a first-degree murder charge after police say a woman he sold drugs to in Coral Springs died of an overdose. Salomon Jules Theoc, 26, was arrested earlier this month in the September 2020 death of Callie Harper, Coral Springs Police officials said. Police said Theoc sold Harper heroin outside the WalMart on Turtle Creek Drive on Sept. 16. Salomon Jules Theoc Shortly after the sale, Harper overdosed and was rushed to Northwest Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead. The Broward County Medical Examiner determined Harper’s death had been caused by Fentanyl, officials said. Officials said investigators used surveillance footage, a witness and digital forensic evidence to obtain an indictment to arrest Theoc. Theoc, of Pompano Beach, remained behind bars without bond Tuesday, jail records showed. Attorney information wasn’t available. “This investigation sends a message to all drug dealers that overdose investigations in the City of Coral Springs will not be viewed simply as the death of a person but handled as a criminal investigation,” police said in a statement. “In the event Coral Springs detectives can identify dealers and link the distribution of the narcotics to the death of a person, we will work the with State Attorney’s Office with the intent of filing criminal charges.” Records showed Theoc was arrested the day after Harper’s death on multiple drug possession and drug selling charges, after allegedly selling crack cocaine and heroin to an undercover officer.
Police body cameras show the late-night arrest of 37-year-old Nichiren Rugeles Ogando after detectives responded to “a suspicious incident.” In custody, a Coral Springs Police detective asked Rugeles Ogando about a call the department received the day before, accusing him of secretly recording his girlfriend and her two children. According to the police report, his girlfriend told investigators she “discovered a smoke detector in her children’s bathroom,” which contained an SD card. She told them she did not install the device and did not give permission to any person to install it. The police report states the camera was placed over the toilet and shower. NBC 6 Investigators exclusively obtained video of the police interrogation of Rugeles Ogando. In the video, a detective asked him if “mom” knew anything about the camera, referring to his girlfriend. He responded no. “She don’t know,” he said, then told the detective he put the camera up for security reasons, to make sure the children did not talk to strangers through her tablet online. Then, the detective questioned him about the videos. Detective: “You can watch the videos on your phone right?” Rugeles Ogando: “Yes.” Detective: “Ok. And what did you see on the videos?” Rugeles Ogando: “I didn’t check it.” Detective: “You haven’t watched it?” Rugeles Ogando: No. But the detective wasn’t buying it. She brought a laptop with videos she claimed came from his phone. “You know what I see them doing? Going to the bathroom and taking a shower,” she told Rugeles Ogando. According to the police report, they found 12 videos of his girlfriend, 32 videos of a seven year old, and 65 videos of a 16 year old, undressing or using the bathroom. Rugeles Ogando was charged with three counts of voyeurism. He pleaded not guilty and remains in custody. His attorney, Marlyse Mercado, declined to comment on the charges and the videos obtained by NBC 6 Investigators. “Respectfully, no comment,” Mercado wrote in an email. After speaking with the detective for more than 40 minutes, Rugeles Ogando apologized. “Sorry for what?” the detective asked him. “For recording them,” he responded. “What do you think they’re thinking about you right now?” she later asked. “They are really mad right now. I’m pretty sure they are really, really mad for me,” he said.“ You violated their privacy,” the detective told him. Hidden Cameras: Smaller and Harder to Spot Evan Tannenbaum from Spy Spot Investigations told NBC 6 smoke detector cameras are among the most popular hidden camera products along with clocks and wall plug chargers. “Cameras are so small nowadays. They’re in anything,” Tannenbaum said. He said most cameras today send video to your phone using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi so a detector is able to spot them. Tannenbaum said hidden cameras and products to find them have become more common with the rise of short-term rentals because people want to know what’s going on in their property and visitors want to know if they’re being watched. The legal line, Tannenbaum said, is when someone would have a reasonable expectation of privacy. So cameras in a bathroom? “Yeah, that would be illegal at that point,” he said. “If they are unaware that there’s cameras in the home, and it’s in the bathroom – that would be an invasion of privacy,” he said. Florida law does allow you to record video on your property or in a public place where there is no expectation of privacy.As for audio, Florida is a two-party consent state, which means most times both parties have to agree to be recorded.
The Broward County Public Schools board is halting the use of a fictional book about a Black boy who is killed by a white officer after a police union complained to the school district that it is anti-police “propaganda.” The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported the children’s fiction book “Ghost Boys” by Jewell Parker Rhodes was used in one fifth grade class at an elementary school in Coral Springs without going through the district’s vetting process. A school board member said assignments related to the book were on hold. “The timing of whether to implement this subject matter must include parents and ultimately be a decision by the parents of each student,” school board member Lori Alhadeff told the newspaper. “I do not feel ‘Ghost Boys’ is appropriate for fifth graders.” Common Sense Media, a nonprofit that rates TV shows, movies, books and other content based on children’s development, says the book is appropriate for children who are 10 and older, the age of fifth graders. The book was published in 2018, and it is told from the point of view of a 12-year-old bullied Black boy in Chicago who is shot dead by a white police officer while playing with a toy gun, recalling the 2014 killing of Tamir Rice, in Cleveland. In the wake of the killing, the ghost boy narrates how his family and the community is impacted, and befriends the daughter of the officer, who is the only living person who can see him, and Emmett Till, a 14-year-old boy from Chicago whose beating death in 1955 helped spur the civil rights movement. The director of the local Fraternal Order of Police, Paul Kempinski, asked Broward County School Board members in a letter to stop using the book. He wrote he was upset by the friendship between the daughter and the boy saying he “ultimately convinces her that her father shot and killed him because her police officer father is a liar and a racist.” “Our members feel that this book is propaganda that pushes an inaccurate and absurd stereotype of police officers in America.” The book was removed from a California school district late last year, according to the National Coalition Against Censorship. Broward County Public Schools district told the newspaper the book was “supplemental” material and could be considered by teachers who want to delve into racial and criminal justice issues. But the district said the teachers who assigned the book did not follow protocol of informing parents to give them a chance for their children to opt out of the assignment. It was previously used in the same school district at Pines Middle School, where a seventh grade book club spoke via Skype with the Black author.
