Court Rules in Scott’s Favor in Recount Case
This morning a judge has ruled in favor of Governor Rick Scott. Yesterday the governor filed a lawsuit against the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections. The suit accused Craig Latimer and the canvassing board of not allowing observers into the recount room. The judge ruled this violates Florida law. Now representatives from both parties will be allowed in the room with the ballot machine. The recount is taking place for three statewide races.

Suspects Arrested in ‘Hole-in-Wall’ Burglaries
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of five burglary suspects. Deputies noticed a trend of business burglaries back in July 2018. The suspects cut holes in the walls to get inside buildings and around security systems. Then they transported stolen items like liquor, jewelry, tires and cigarettes. There is an active warrant remaining for one person. If convicted the suspects could be facing at least 25 years in prison.
