Man eats money he stole
A Marathon man was arrested Thursday for battering and robbing his girlfriend. On the way to jail, he then ate a large portion of the money he stole from her.
Monroe County Sgt. Joel Slough and Deputy Vince Weiner responded to Ocean Terrace in Marathon to reports of a domestic dispute. They found the suspect, Leosvel Cordova Parrado, who was clearly intoxicated. The victim, his girlfriend, and her son were also on the scene.
The victim told deputies they were at a party and Parrado became angry and demanded they return home. She said once they were at home, he pushed her around in their residence and the two of them struggled over her wallet, which he took from her by force. The wallet contained $750 in cash.
When deputies placed Parrado under arrest, they found a large amount of cash in his pocket along with a valium pill. The cash was left in his pocket as the deputies walked him outside to a patrol vehicle. Once outside, they attempted to find the cash but it was missing.
Parrado was handcuffed and placed in a patrol car. As Sgt. Slough was driving to the detention center in Marathon, he heard a strange noise in the back of his car. When he looked in his rearview mirror, he saw Parrado with his mouth full of cash. He was literally chewing – and choking on – the cash he had stolen from his girlfriend.
When Sgt. Slough counted the remaining cash, he found $277 missing.
Parrado was charged with robbery, battery, grand theft, resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance and tampering with evidence.
