Breast cancer walk Saturday
Saturday is the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 3K Walk with 400 local residents, many of them wearing pink sneakers, expected to meet at Higgs Beach to walk in support of anyone who has ever battled breast cancer.
The walk starts at 8:30 a.m.
Registration will be between 7 and 8 a.m. on the beach behind Salute Restaurant. A breakfast will be held for breast cancer survivors who are members of registered teams, and a D.J. will provide music.
The Lower Keys' group goal is $70,000.
For details, call Carrie Hellison at (305) 304-3688.
Tips for fire prevention week
The Key West Fire Department asks residents remember the following as this week is fire prevention week:
• Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling or broiling food;
• Keep cooking areas clean and clear of combustibles;
• Keep children away from cooking areas by enforcing a "kid-free zone" of three feet around the stove;
• If you have a fire in your microwave, turn it off immediately and keep the door closed;
• Always keep an oven mitt and a lid nearby. If a small grease fire starts in a pan, smother the flames by carefully sliding the lid over the pan. Turn off the burner. Do not move the pan. Never pour water on a grease fire.
Man accused of business theft
Deputies used surveillance video at a Fisherman's Key Seafood, 6011 Peninsular Ave., to identify Pablo Hernandez Caridad, 51, who they accuse of stealing from the cash drawer on Oct. 1, reports say.
The video reportedly shows Caridad walk into the business at 10 a.m., take a drink from the water fountain, then remove cash from the drawer and put it in his pocket, reports say.
The business manager reportedly saw Caridad leaving the shop and told him he wasn't allowed inside when nobody was present. Shortly thereafter, he reported the theft.
Caridad was taken to Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island.
