Monti

According to a Holmes Beach Police Department report, Mayor Carmel Monti is the victim of a vehicle burglary that resulted in the theft of a .38 caliber handgun from his 2001 Toyota SUV.

The theft was reported April 22.

Monti told police the $700 revolver was between his car seats and covered with a cloth.

He later said it was in a compartment.

According to the HBPD report, the mayor “did not notice the gun was taken.” He said it could have been stolen anytime between Feb. 1 and when he discovered it missing.

    Unless he had a permit, his first story made it illegal. Hmmmm. Interesting. We need to keep him on the idiot watch.

    Begs the question….. What was Mayor Monti carrying a handgun in his car for?
    Was he looking to murder or rob someone?

    Interesting how he changed his story. The first story would be a felony without a permit. Best to put the mayor on idiot watch.

    Mayor Monti- the stolen gun problem is the newest in a line of problems. His male pit bull has wandered the streets and made his way over fences and into other residents’ back yards numerous times. Thank God the dog is friendly and well behaved. But how long will Monti be with us? Is it true he in arrears on his mortgage?
