BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — Deputy David Bowes was recognized as the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office South Precinct Deputy of the month for numerous Patrol and Investigative efforts that occurred during the month of March.

In early March, Deputy David Bowes responded to a possible identity theft and fraud case.

Upon meeting with the victim, Deputy Bowes learned that the suspect had charged over $500 of merchandise to the victim’s account.

The victim advised that she suspected a neighbor. Acting on this information, Deputy Bowes located the neighbor and was able to get the suspect to confess to the crime.

He learned that the suspect had become upset with the victim and had obtained the victim ‘s credit card number and used it to fraudulently purchase the items.

Deputy Bowes arrested the suspect and was able to recover all of the items purchased.

In a separate incident, Deputy Bowes was on patrol when he observed a vehicle parked at a beach accesses.

Deputy Bowes approached the vehicle when the driver leaned out of the car and yelled that nothing illegal was going on.

Upon looking inside the vehicle, Deputy Bowes observed that the adult male driver was accompanied by a juvenile male.

Deputy Bowes immediately became suspicious and coupled with concerns for the juvenile’s safety, asked the driver for consent to search the vehicle.
