A man who called the Sheriff’s Office to report he was the victim of a physical confrontation over a bag of marijuana ended up in jail.

David Lawrence Connelly, 48, of Southwest 73rd Court, Ocala, was accused of possession of marijuana less than 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia.

When deputies arrived at the house, they found a bleeding Connelly and blood in the home. He told police he had an unloaded gun but didn’t know what he did with it. When he was looking for the gun, he allegedly picked up a pipe, and there was a small amount of marijuana in the pipe which tested positive.

He then said he would not press charges against the man with whom he had the confrontation, and refused to give permission to search his house, but he was arrested and taken to jail.

Two women were accused of retail petit theft and given a notice to appear after an incident at Beall’s.

Kimberly Ann Deidesheimer, 24, of Southwest 103rd Place, and Amanda Maria Deloatche, 23, of Southwest 78th Place, were detained by the store’s loss prevention officer after they allegedly took some women’s clothes, went into the changing room, put the clothes in their purses and then left the store.

They were given a court date of July 28.
