Marathon - A Marathon man was arrested for burglary after his ex-girlfriend turned over a box of stolen sex toys to Sheriff’s detectives.
The burglary occurred between the night of January 10th and the morning of the 11th. A trailer parked behind the Banana Bay Resort and Marina was broken into. A woman who lives nearby told detectives she saw people around the trailer, but she thought they were employees of the resort so she didn’t call law enforcement.
Detective Mark Maison and Deputies Trevor Wirth and Kim Trullender investigated the case. They interviewed a number of employees, and guests staying at the resort. While investigating this crime, Deputy Trullender was also assigned to investigate a grand theft case. When he responded to take the report, he met with the victim who was the ex-girlfriend of a man who works at Banana Bay Resort. She said her ex-boyfriend, 39 year old Mitchell Tice, had recently brought home a box of sex toys which he said he’d gotten from a trailer behind the resort. She turned the box of sex toys over to Deputy Trullender.
The owner of the trailer identified the sex toys as his, and said they were in the trailer at the time of the burglary. A warrant was issued for Tice and on Sunday he was arrested. He was charged with criminal mischief, burglary and theft. He was booked into jail. The toys were returned to their owner.
