PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's deputies arrested a Port Charlotte man Sunday for stalking; he bonded out, then continued stalking his victim and was re-arrested Monday. Allan Dale Lowe, 32, of 3911 Woodholm Drive, was charged with felony Aggravated Stalking.
The 24-year-old female victim called CCSO Sunday to report Lowe had been outside her home and he was also following her in his vehicle. The victim said she was afraid Lowe was going to shoot her or run her over when she attempted to leave her home. She said he made threats to her on Sep. 14 and 16 and she was in fear for her life as Lowe usually carries a handgun and a knife in his vehicle.
Deputies contacted Lowe who said he was waiting for his former girlfriend to leave her home so they could talk and he wasn’t leaving until he talked to her. Deputies asked him to leave several times but he refused. Lowe was arrested for misdemeanor Stalking and taken to the Charlotte County Jail; he posted a $1,000 bond and was released Sunday. The victim told deputies she and Lowe never dated but had been friends for about two years and Lowe doesn’t like her new boyfriend.
Monday morning the victim called CCSO and said Lowe started calling and texting her again. She also reported someone punctured three of the tires on SUV and she suspected Lowe. She said Lowe drove by her home at least 10 times. Deputies checked her phone and there were 29 calls and text messages from 1:33 a.m. to 9:24 a.m. Monday from Lowe. While speaking to the victim, her phone rang; the deputy answered and told Lowe not to call her again. The phone then rang three more times while the deputy was conducting the investigation.
A BOLO was issued Monday for Lowe and his vehicle; he was located and taken into custody at 11:30 a.m. Lowe said he had been dating the victim for about two years and denied threatening her or anyone else. Probable cause was determined and Lowe was arrested and taken to the Charlotte County Jail. Lowe's bond was set at $4,500; he has not posted the bond and remains in custody at the County Jail.
