Possible Duck Key resident shown on county arrest records 2005.

Humorous discoveries? found in Monroe County Sheriff's

Sheriff's Office records show up in same archives of
"thesmokinggun" website as Bill O'Rielly's Sexual Harrassment Complaint
and Dick Cheney's shooting incident report.

 

October 2005

In October of 2005, I was checking the Monroe County Sheriff's website for an arrest a resident called to my attention. The arrest listing turned out to be for someone who "gave" Schooner Lane as a residence or possibly was renting a room there at one time, but no one I talked to seemed to recognized the person's name or image.

In scanning pages for that period, I happened to come across another entry for a Juan Llama.The entry looked unusual so I took a scene shot and saved the image of a Juan llama and later wrote a note to the officer in charge, Becky Herrin with copies to Sheriff Rick Roth and Captain Peryam. I also told a few friends of the interesting entry. The arrest page entry disappeared before I sent my email. My email note to the Sheriff's Office and Becky Herrin's response appear below.

Dear Sheriff's Department,

1. SERIOUS INQUIRY

I noticed on the County Sheriff's website some different information about an arrestee of 10/14/2005 - J MORGAN PYLES. Entries shows a Pennsylvania address and a 219 Schooner Lane, Duck Key address for the same CAD number. Other information shows a Marathon address under a different CAD Number for 10/13/2005. As a Duck Key resident I'd like to know if Mr. Pyles is living at 219 Schooner Lane?
Pyles different addresses for arrests are shown below .
The arrest report contrasted with the background search section for a 10/14/2005 arrest below:

2. Humorous Inquiry

During my browsing of the www.keysso.gov website, I noticed an interesting but incomplete arrest record for a Juan Llama which would not have caught my attention were it not
for the image shown of Juan "Llama" which I reproduce below.

The image and partial information was up on the www.keysso.net website around 3:30 PM on 10/16/2005. Regrettably but wisely it vanished later in the afternoon.
I am probably the only person who came across this interesting anomaly on the arrest records on this rainy day before it disappeared.

"Arrest Date: 10/14/2005 CAD #: Offense #:
Name: LLAMA, JUAN DoB:01/10/1986 Age:19 Sex:M Race:W
Address:
KEY WEST HIGH SCHOOL, KEY WEST,
Occupation:
STUFFED LLAMA
Arrest Location: KEY WEST HIGH SCHOOL, KEY WEST
Charges:
1 Misdemeanor Count(s) of 856.021.
LOITERING - OR PROWLING
Officer/Agency: PERYAM, CYNTHIA - MCSO\ADMINISTRATION Bond Amount: $0"

My question - Is Juan currently being held in the county jail or is Juan perhaps being held in the county zoo? Since he no longer appears on County records is it possible he now being held incommunicado on some island outside of U.S. jurisdiction until he spills his guts (stuffing that is)?
I support the efforts of the Sheriff's Department and the community appreciates the patrolling of Duck Keys' streets by the officers of the Sheriff's Department.

Regards, Dick Adler

The last address I show for Pyles is the Duck Key Address...It appears that it was entered in the system in January of 2004, though. It should have been updated with this most recent arrest...not sure why it wasn't. It may just be that he is still there, so they left it alone.As for the llama...I saw it too. I think someone in our IT department was having some fun, although I can't get anyone to fess up to it.Thanks for visiting our site.

More than one person must have come across this arrest record on the Monroe County Sheriff's website because it wasn't long before the arrest postings appeared on an internet website called, thesmokinggun.com. The Smoking Gun folks have a screen shot of the arrest entry and placed it on their website.

A portion of my screen shot is below.

FEBRUARY 2006

In February, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office website had another interesting entry for an arrest recorded. It seems a Mr. D. Luis Duck, a 75-year-old white male, was arrested according to Monroe County records on Valentine's Day, February 14, 2006. The records indicate the white male who gave his residence as Orlando, Florida and not Duck Key was arrested after failing a Breathalyzer test which showed a blood alcohol content above the state's legal limit of .08. Mr. Duck gave his address as 1201 Happy Place Lane, Orlando.

 

My screen shot is below.


TheSmokingGun reported on their website, "
Disney Star Runs Afoul Of Law"

Sheriff: Drunk duck nabbed in Florida Keys on Valentine's Day

"FEBRUARY 24--Looks like our friends in Florida's Monroe County Sheriff's Office have again been "messing around" with the agency's online arrest database. As you may recall, employees there have previously reported fictitious busts of a llama and Eminem. On February 14, one Donald Luis Duck of 1201 Happy Place Lane in Orlando appeared on the blotter, complete with photo and pedigree information. While the Duck page was subsequently yanked, you can find a screen grab of it below. According to the online registry, Duck, whose occupation was not listed, got nabbed for drunk driving in the Florida Keys. The Valentine's Day arrest of the 75-year-old white male apparently came after a Breathalyzer test showed Duck's blood alcohol content to be above the state's .08 legal limit. When we asked about last October's purported loitering arrest of Juan Llama, a sheriff's spokesman told us then that an employee was improperly "messing around" on the law enforcement agency's web site. Seems like the fun has not ended."

 

If you have not heard of "thesmokinggun" website, they are part of the Courtroom Television Network, and the same people that posted Dick Cheney's youthful arrest records and the official report released for the recent Cheney hunting accident -

The Smoking Gun people write

Smoking Gun "brings you exclusive documents--cool, confidential, quirky--that can't be found elsewhere on the Web. Using material obtained from government and law enforcement sources, via Freedom of Information requests, and from court files nationwide, we guarantee everything here is 100% authentic.

The site was founded in April 1997. In December 2000, The Smoking Gun was acquired by Court TV, a basic cable network with more than 80 million subscribers."

The Smoking Gun folks are also responsible for posting the 22 page complaint against Bill O'Reilly in the sex harassment suit. http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/funny/oreilly-hit-sex-harass-suit

The complaint provides details of lewd behavior of the Fox cable TV star as alleged by a Female Fox coworker.

 

So there you have it - Duck Key in the Monroe County Sheriff's arrest records, Juan Llama and Donald Luis Duck in the Florida Keys, and The Smoking Gun of Court TV and Bill O'Reilly.
