Lt. Brian Jones, Charlotte County Animal Control "Unknown people coming and going from the property and whenever we'd go out there there would be a different person than who you dealt with the last time, different animals coming and going."

AND THAT'S WHAT WAS ULTIMATELY LED TO A DISTURBING FIND.

OVER 80 ANIMALS WERE FOUND LIVING IN FILTH - NAILS WERE STUCK GOATS, DEAD DOGS FOUND ON THE PROPERTY, ALONG WITH SEVERAL ALLIGATORS IN THEIR BACKYARD.

… BUT OFFICERS SAY THAT WAS ONLY THE START OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITY HERE.

Lucas Seiler, Reporting SU This house is familiar to investigators… a marijuana grow house was discovered here last year along with those 80 animals… and just last month a suspicious fire broke out when no one was supposed to be living inside.

THIS MAN - PABLO CAUZ HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH DRUG-RELATED CHARGES - HE'S ALSO BEEN ARRESTED ON 26 ANIMAL CRUETLY CHARGES.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND AHEAD

It was a great end to the work week across Southwest Florida Friday, with plenty of sun & highs in the 70s. With mostly clear skies this evening, temps will fall quickly into the 50s. Overnight lows tonight will again be cool, with numbers in the low 50s in the urban corridor and mid to upper 40s inland.

The great weather continues into the weekend. We'll see a heavy dose of sun all day Saturday, low humidity values and warmer highs in the upper 70s. An afternoon sea breeze will again develop, with cooler highs along the coast.

Sunday will also feature beautiful weather. Expect another day of total sunshine with even warmer highs in the low 80s.

The quiet and dry weather continues into next week. We'll see just a few more clouds on Monday, with highs in the mid 80s. Tuesday will feature partly cloudy skies, with highs in the mid 80s.

Things begin to change mid to late week. Wednesday will be dry, but more of a blend of sun & clouds is expected. Highs on Wednesday will again be in the mid 80s.

A powerful storm system will begin to move in Thursday & Friday. This system will bring a good chance of showers and storms across the area, with cooler weather to close next week. Return to index of stories...
