On Feb. 12 a Corridor woman reported her ex-boyfriend came to pick up the rest of his belongings from her S.W. 59th Street home and also took her 2006 Chevrolet Impala. The following day the car was found parked in the driveway of a house on S.E. Maricamp Road. A witness at the home told a sheriff’s deputy the man had left the vehicle there and had been dropped off in Ocklawaha, according to a sheriff’s report.

The car was returned to the owner. But, at approximately 10:30 p.m. Feb. 13, the Impala was gone again. While the suspect was at the house, again collecting the rest of his belongings the 57-year-old woman reported she went to sleep.

When a sheriff’s deputy was dispatched to her home, she was very upset and kept saying, “He did it to me again,” according to a report. When asked for her driver’s license, she reported it was missing from her handbag along with her bank card and pre-paid cell phone.

She went into to her bedroom to check her safe and found it had been pried open. Several pieces of jewelry including diamond earrings, a diamond ring, and a ruby and diamond ring and her wedding band were also missing.

On Feb. 14, a sheriff’s deputy responded to a home on S.E. 131st Place where the missing Impala and the suspect were found.

Christopher Nunemaker, 35, of Ocala, was arrested and charged with auto theft, grand theft and criminal mischief and was taken to the Marion County Jail.

At the time of his arrest, Nunemaker returned a gold heart necklace with blue stone charm, a gold bracelet and small gold heart charm, according to a sheriff’s report.
