Good or bad, a haircut can send a strong statement, which is exactly what happened at Thursday’s Tampa City Council meeting when a tree advocate chopped off a chunk of her hair to bring awareness to saving the trees.

Cinzia Duncan’s proposal was approved in a 6-to-1 vote by Tampa City Council, changing the way trees are evaluated when it comes to removing them. She wanted to show once you cut a chunk of hair – just like a tree – you can’t put it back.

LUTZ, Fla. (WFLA) – A man accused of breaking windshield wipers and windshields on several cars in a Pasco County parking lot told deputies he did it because he was angry he couldn’t remember where he parked his own car.

Deputies say 60-year-old Albert Megnath bent, broke and removed windshield wipers on several cars at the Northpointe Village Shopping Center in Lutz Saturday night. Removing the wipers also caused several windshields to crack, an arrest report says.

When deputies spoke with Megnath, they say he admitted to damaging the cars because he was angry he couldn’t find his own car that was parked in the parking lot.

A total of six vehicles were reported damaged. Deputies say that’s in addition to about ten other vehicles “in which the owners did not wish to be victims in this case.” The total cost of damage is estimated to be about $1,000, according to the arrest report.

The arrest report also says Megnath was not supposed to be at the shopping center because he was given a trespass warning back in September for vandalizing the property.

The 60-year-old was arrested for criminal mischief and trespassing and taken to the Land O’ Lakes Detention Center.

The deputy who filled out the arrest report requested a high bond due to Megnath’s crime, his history and his “uncooperative and argumentative” behavior during the investigation.

Reston was arrested and received a first-degree misdemeanor charge for misuse of 911.

Largo police say they arrested a man who tried, unsuccessfully, to rob two banks before returning to the first one.

Police said in a Facebook post Ronald Massey tried to enter the Bank of America on Wednesday morning but found the bank wasn’t open yet.

Massey wore a mask while trying to open the bank’s door around 8:20 a.m., but then rode away on his bicycle when he could not get inside, Spectrum Bay News 9 reported. Employees of the bank called the police to report the incident.

About 40 minutes later and roughly a quarter-mile south of the Bank of America, police got another reporter of an attempted robbery, according to WFLA News Channel 8.

Massey went to the BB&T bank where he tried to get money using a knife, but safety glass at the bank forced him to leave empty-handed, according to police.

Tellers behind the safety glass left the area to call the police, according to WFLA.

That’s when Massey went back to the Bank of America. There, he was met by a Largo police officer, who was taking a report and was arrested.

Bay News 9 reported Massey was still wearing a mask and carrying a knife when he returned.

“Massey just got out of prison for robbing two other Largo banks,” police said.

WFLA reported he was released Jan. 10.
