CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla - Deputies with the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office arrest 2 people wanted for robbery and grand theft of a Punta Gorda man that occurred last month in Englewood.
Arrested were Janeen Laverne Campbell and Terry Donald Woodrum.
Detectives said Carl Brown, 44, 48863 Bermont Rd., asked the Bread of Life Mission in Punta Gorda for two people to assist him in loading 2,000 watermelons. Campbell and Woodrum were driven to Brown’s home on June 15 and loaded his 2004 Dodge truck and trailer. The next day all three drove to Englewood to sell to a man for $1,100 cash. Brown, Campbell and Woodrum then proceeded to spend the night at Brown’s friend’s condo at Angler’s Resort, 1385 Gulf Blvd., Englewood.
Deputies were called out that night to report Brown was found bleeding and said he was hit in the face with a pipe and robbed of his money, ring, keys and truck.

The next day, June 17, Brown called CCSO from his home and wanted to talk to detectives about what happened at the Englewood Condo; he also reported his house trailer on Bermont Road had been broken into. A generator and chain saw were stolen and he found a wallet belonging to Campbell inside the trailer. Total value of items stolen was set at $18,110; this included cash, ring, generator, chain saw and his truck.
