We arrived on the scene just as deputies were attempting to make contact 30-year-old James Robert Cina, at 5144 Landover Blvd, the same residence of last week’s shooting that injured 32-year-old Kyle Ehatt.
Deputies surrounded the home and knocked on the door for several minutes before a woman answered and then disappeared back inside.

UPDATE: 8/13/2015, 6:58 PM – The Sheriff’s Office has now released the following report:
On 08-12-15 I was dispatched to the victim’s address of 11357 Outrigger Ave in reference to a Grand Theft. The victim, James Cina Sr. called to advise that his son, the defendant, James Cina Jr had stolen a safe from his bedroom closet that contained personal paperwork, 3 watches (gold Seiko, Silver Citizens and a chrome Android) , BOA checkbook, 3 sets of keys(1 Hyundai, 1 Nissan and 1 Honda Goldwing) and a Best Buy credit card. Upon arrival, James Cina Sr was back in possession of his safe; which had heavy damage, pry marks and no longer closed or functioned. James advised that his daughter, Lynsey Cina had located the defendant and retrieved the safe; however all of its contents were missing except a pocket folder that had his personal paperwork in it.
James advised that he had all of his tax preparation for several years in the folder and several were now missing. James was afraid that his son would use his personal information contained in those records fraudulently. James also advised that he received a call from Bank of America advising that the defendant cashed a check made out to himself. James advised that the check was fraudulent and the bank froze the account. James did not have the bank information at the time of the report.
I then spoke with Lynsey. Lynsey advised that her brother, the defendant, came by the residence at approximately noon and said he needed to retrieve some clothing (the defendant stays from place to place). Lynsey stated that the defendant came into the residence alone and she did not see any one else present. Lynsey advised that after her brother left, she checked the house to make sure her brother did not take anything he wasn’t supposed to and she noticed her dads safe was missing. Lynsey called the defendant and asked him to bring the safe back. Lynsey was hoping she could get everything back for her dad. The defendant told Lynsey he would bring the safe back but didn’t so she went to the address of 5144 Landover, where he had been staying. Lynsey advised that James was at the residence and brought the safe out to her. Lynsey stated that the safe had obvious damage and was empty. Lynsey did not want a confrontation at that house so she left with the safe and brought it home to her dad who had already called the Sheriff’s office. Lynsey Cina provided a sworn written statement.
Also present with Lynsey was her nephew, James Thomas. James advised that he was sleeping when the defendant came to the house and stole the safe. James Thomas advised that Lynsey woke him up and asked him to go with her to try and get the safe back. James Thomas advised that they went to the address of 5144 Landover and James brought out the safe, which had obvious damage, and put it in the back of Lynsey’s car. James Thomas provided a sworn written statement.
At this time, I responded to the address of 5144 Landover to make contact with the defendant. Upon arrival, contact was made with the home owner, Jamie Mandia. Jamie confirmed that the defendant was in the residence. I called out to the defendant at which time Jamie stated that he was locked in her bedroom acting weird and panicking. The defendant kept yelling from behind the door, asking his charges. At this time, the defendant came out of the bedroom and peeked his head around the corner and asked his charges. Once I visually confirmed that he was in fact the defendant (from past contact and booking photos viewed prior to arrival), the defendant was given verbal commands to come out of the residence with his hands up. The defendant then ran back into the bedroom and locked the door. Deputy Escoda and I followed behind him and entered the bedroom giving the defendant several commands to get on the ground, which he ignored. The defendant then took a syringe he had in his hand and stuck it into his other hand at which time Deputy Escoda deployed his Taser and the defendant was taken into custody. Next to the defendant on the bed was another used syringe. On the dresser next to the bed was an unknown yellow pill, a spoon with residue and a white crystal like substance in a plastic baggie. On the floor next to the defendant was a black book bag.
Jamie advised that the book bag did not belong to her and that the defendant had brought it to the residence with him. Inside the book bag was the checkbook belonging to the victim, James Cina Sr, the Honda Goldwing motorcycle key, an HP laptop charger and a folder full of several signed vehicle titles not belonging to anyone at the residence. The victim’s tax information was not recovered at this time.
I then spoke with Jamie who confirmed that the defendant had brought a safe to her house earlier in the day. Jamie stated that the defendant told her the safe belonged to him. Jamie advised that the defendant used several tools in her garage to open the safe. Jamie did not know where the contents of the safe were at this time. Jamie stated that the defendant and came and went from the residence a few times with subjects named Matthew Heater and Krystal Priola. Jamie provided a sworn written statement.
The defendant was brought to the hospital where he was medically cleared and transported to the jail by Deputy Savelli.
The substance in the syringe field tested positive for heroin. The other contraband located in the bedroom was placed into evidence and the defendant is not being charged with those at this time.
The defendant is being charged with Grand Theft, Resisting Law Enforcement without violence, Possession of Heroin, and possession of Personal identification information.
Further charges of Fraud are forthcoming once the bank establishment provides the victim with documentation.
The defendant is to be held on a bond of $2,000.00 for Ct1, $5,000.00 for Ct3 $2,000.00 for Ct3 $1,000.00 for Ct4, and, for a total bond of $10,000.00.
