SUSPECTS ARRESTED IN ANTIQUE MALL THEFTS
Assistance from an Ocala Crime Stoppers Tip assists in the identification and apprehension of the two suspects in the two antique mall thefts.
Case #201300025221 & 201300023326
Incident Dates: 2/1 & 2/2013

Grand Theft of a coin collection (valued at $1,491.00) occurred on 2/1/13 at approximately 5:30pm at the Wildwood Antique Mall, 2405 SW 27th Ave., Suite #101, Ocala, FL.
A similar Grand Theft from Old Cracker House Antique Mall, 1734 N. Pine Ave. on 2/2/13. The jewelry stolen in this case is valued in excess of $700.00.
The store surveillance from The Wildwood Antique Mall shows a white male and white female committed the theft. Descriptions of the suspects at the Old Cracker House Antique Mall matched that of the suspects shown in the surveillance from the Wildwood Antique Mall.
On March 4, 2013, following the release of the surveillance photos, a Crime Stoppers Tip was received that the female suspect was an “Andrea Miller”. This information was investigated and the suspect was identified as w/f Andrea Weiss Miller, DOB 01/18/68. The tattoos on her back were found to be the faces of her daughters with their names below their faces. Through a check of OPD databases, information was found that previous contact by an OPD officer had been made with Miller and a w/m subject named George William Norwood, DOB 05/11/81. It was found that Miller had been arrested and booked into the Marion County Jail on 02/12/13 for Dealing in Stolen Property and had bonded out. Norwood was found to have been released from DOC in October of 2012, and to have been arrested for Retail Theft charges on 02/16/13 and had bonded out of the Marion County Jail. Norwood was also positively identified as the male suspect in the surveillance footage. Detective Daunhauer located information that Norwood had pawned items stolen from the Old Cracker House Antique Mall.
On March 5, 2013, Detectives Shawn Hardman and Steve Daunhauer, along with Detectives from the Property Crimes Unit of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, OPD Patrol officers and K-9 Officer Gerard King and his partner Kilo, responded to 521 SE 12th St. The Detectives had developed information that Miller and Norwood may be staying at this location. Contact was made with another resident of this address, who allowed access. Miller was found hiding inside of a locked bedroom. Norwood was located hiding in the attic of the residence – he refused to come down and officers had to go into the attic to take him into custody. Following arrest, Miller declined to speak with the Detectives and Norwood denied committing the thefts. Both were transported to the Marion County Jail.

W/M George William Norwood, DOB 05/11/81:
Case #201300025221 – Grand Theft
Case #201300023326 – Grand Theft, Dealing in Stolen Property, False Information to a Secondhand Dealer, Resisting Arrest w/o Violence
