PUNTA GORDA, Fla.- Punta Gorda Police arrested 19-year-old Matthew Wayne Morrison yesterday for violating the No Contact with Juveniles stipulation; he is not permitted to have contact with anyone under the age of 18 unless directly supervised by an adult.
A detective observed Morrison pushing a bicycle into a wooded area near the intersection of Taylor Road and Narranja Street. Due to the increased amount of bicycle thefts, the detective decided to stop and speak to Morrison, who was found with two juvenile females in the wooded area. A check of Morrison revealed a prior arrest for a sexual offense as a juvenile and a probation stipulation that he could not be around juveniles without the presence of an adult.
Morrison was placed under arrest for Violation of Probation and was subsequently released with a Home Detention Contract.
