FORT PIERCE — Residents of the Sunrise City soon won’t have to travel to Port St. Lucie to stock up on Aldi’s low prices.

The Treasure Coast’s fifth Aldi and third St. Lucie County store opens Dec. 14 at 1412 U.S. 1, Fort Pierce.

The grand opening begins with an 8:25 a.m. ribbon cutting, which will be followed by a gift card giveaway.

The first 100 shoppers will receive store gift cards and early shoppers also get free reusable bags, samples and entry into a contest to win free produce for a year.

“We’re thrilled to join the Fort Pierce community and offer customers the benefits of the ALDI shopping experience,” said Chris Hewitt, Royal Palm Beach division vice president for Aldi, in a news release. “Our high-quality products and everyday low prices make for a combination our competitors just can’t match.”

Aldi, short for “Albrecht Discount,” is one of the world’s largest grocery chains. Stores are smaller than your average Publix or Winn-Dixie and carry about 1,300 of the most commonly purchased grocery items through its private label. Company officials say they keep prices low by using a warehouse layout and minimal staffing.

Expect long lines of shoppers to get to the new store early, which has been the case at past Treasure Coast Aldi openings.

A Fort Pierce man was arrested Sunday on five charges, including two drug charges, after police said he fled from an officer who tried to pull over the silver Ford sedan he was driving, according to an arrest affidavit.  

The officer was on patrol with the Fort Pierce Crime Suppression Unit when he saw Marvin M. Jennings, 18, of the 1200 block of North 35th Street, overshoot the stop bar on the pavement at North 21st Street and Avenue G, and smelled the scent of marijuana coming from the car, it said.

According to the affidavit:

The officer tried to stop the Ford, but it sped off, eventually stopping in a restaurant parking lot in the 100 block of South 25th Street.

When police removed the driver from the car, Jennings kept reaching into his waistband as if to conceal something. The officer used a “pain compliance technique,” hitting him with the heel of his hand, and was able to handcuff him.

More: Supreme Court declines to hear Fort Pierce Second Amendment case

A bag of cocaine fell out of Jennings’ pocket as he was arrested, and a bag thrown from the car on North 21st Street contained 2.7 grams of MDMA.

Jennings was charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, cocaine possession, operating a vehicle without a valid license, fleeing and eluding, and resisting an officer without violence, St. Lucie County Jail records show.

He remained held without bail Monday under a hold for violation of probation in a battery case and a court order to revoke his bail in a case in which he was charged with giving authorities a false name.

Woman accused of ‘kee-keeing’ in man’s face in Fort Pierce

FORT PIERCE — A dispute involving allegations of a woman “kee-keeing” in a man’s face sent one person to jail.

Keira Keesha Ruth, 43, was arrested after the apparent “kee-keeing” calamity, a police report states.

Fort Pierce police on Nov. 16 went to an address in the 600 block of North 14th Street for a stabbing.

A woman with blood on her hands told investigators she was washing dishes in the kitchen when a male roommate came in and said he wanted some water.

The woman said the male roommate reached in the sink to get water when his girlfriend – Ruth – came in with a pocket knife.

The woman said Ruth asked why she was “kee-keeing … in my man’s face.”

The report defined “kee-keeing” as smiling, which some consider a sign of affection.

The woman said Ruth tried to cut her.

Ruth told police she was visiting her boyfriend and wanted to talk to the roommate about the alleged “smiling in her boyfriend’s face.”

“You don’t want to (expletive) with me, I’m 53 years old,” the roommate is quoted as saying to Ruth.

Ruth said the roommate threw a bowl of water at her before they started fighting and pulling each other’s hair.

Ruth’s boyfriend said he tried to separate Ruth and the roommate and told them to stop with the fighting.

Ruth, of the 600 block of Avenue B in Fort Pierce, was arrested on a battery charge.

It should be noted that Ruth was “kee-keeing” in her jail booking photo.

Fort Pierce weekend events stir up holiday spirit, inspire giving

Several events this weekend will help you get you in the Christmas spirit. Two are at the Indian River State College Hallstrom Planetarium.

The “Star of Wonder” program showcases the skies as they appeared 2,000 years ago. Viewers will trace what might have been the path of the mysterious star followed by the Wise Men, showing the constellations and the locations of planets.

“What was it in the sky that compelled the Magi to embark on a journey of hundreds of miles across desert and mountains?” said Jon Bell, director of the Hallstrom Planetarium. “This program will bring the audience one step closer to understanding.”

“Star of Wonder” is 6 and 7:30 p.m. Friday and 1 and 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $5.

On Sunday, “Yuletides” features songs of the holiday season with the live electronic music of world-renowned composer and artist Jonn Serrie under the planetarium stars as Bell projects stars and stellar beacons on the planetarium dome, all choreographed to music. “Yuletides” will be 4 and 7 p.m. Sunday. Tickets for the shows are $12.

For more information, go to www.irsc.edu, visit the box office or call 800-220-9915 to reserve seats. 

Toy drive block party

 The third annual Toy Drive Block Party in downtown Fort Pierce, hosted by LeGit Cuts Barbershop, Sailfish Brewery and Fresh Country Radio, is noon to 6 p.m. Saturday.

“We have a blast every year, we learn more and more and we are looking forward to watching the event grow,” said Jose Ruiz, LeGit Cuts owner/operator and block party founder. ”These kids deserve all we can give and more, It’s a lot of fun.”

A section of Second Street north of Avenue A in downtown Fort Pierce is included in the block party directly in front of LeGit Cuts Barbershop at 206 N. Second St.

Last year, the toy drive helped more than 1,000 local children. With admission to the event an unwrapped toy, Ruiz is confident the amount will double this year. There also will be face painting, crafts, kids’ activities, music, vendors, food and more. The toy drive will benefit area nonprofit organizations, including Suncoast Mental Health Center, Mustard Seed Ministries and CASTLE.

One thing I love about this toy drive is the gifts will go to children who are not receiving assistance from other sources, so they will be most appreciated.

For more information,  email Deborah Pizzimenti at DPizzimenti@smhcinc.org. 

Enjoy these special ways to get into the Christmas spirit.

Happy Friday!

Fort Pierce’s city manager has asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to review a formal complaint against the city’s police chief by a local resident.


Chief Diane Hobley-Burney



FORT PIERCE, Fla. – Fort Pierce’s city manager has asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to review a formal complaint against the city’s police chief by a local resident.

This is part of an ongoing dispute between business owner Rick Reed and the Chief Diane Hobley-Burney.

Reed, a local restaurant owner, claims three women harassed him after a city council meeting in September and that Hobley-Burney told them to do it.

The chief says the allegations are not true.

WPTV has reached out to the FDLE for a response but that have not commented.

Fort Pierce asks FDLE to investigate complaint on Police Chief Diane Hobley-Burney

FORT PIERCE — The city forwarded a complaint against Police Chief Diane Hobley-Burney to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for investigation, records show.

City Attorney James Messer on Tuesday sent Richard Reed’s complaint alleging harassment by the police chief and calling for her firing.

Reed, a restaurant-owner and frequent critic of the city, has carried on his public dispute with Hobley-Burney for more than a year. She was suspended for five days and placed on probation for 90 days after a complaint Reed submitted in 2016.

In the most recent complaint, Reed claimed Hobley-Burney orchestrated an incident in which Reed was accused of harassing and following a woman after a Sept. 18 city commissioners meeting.

“Due to the complaint possibly having criminal implications, it would be better served to be investigated by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement,” the city’s human resources manager, Kevin Browning, wrote in a Nov. 30 letter to City Manager Nick Mimms.

Three women told police Reed followed one of them to her car and made a rude remark after the September meeting.

City Hall surveillance footage, which does not include audio, showed an exchange between the women and Reed before he walked out after one of them.

“These three women lied their heads off,” Reed said in the complaint. ”All three of the women who gave these perjured statements are known cronies of Fort Pierce Police Chief Hobley-Burney.”

Reed said it was part of a campaign of harassment.

“Chief Hobley-Burney attempted to set me up for Chief Hobley-Burney to either arrest me on false charges or to do me bodily harm,” he said. ”For more than a year, I have lived in constant fear and the retaliation against me has continued.”

Reed criticized Hobley-Burney and the police department in 2016 about how they were handling the death of Demarcus Semer. Semer was shot while fleeing from police after a traffic stop. Hobley-Burney fired Officer Ralph Keith Holmes and Sgt. Brian MacNaught after the shooting.

The complaint for which Hobley-Burney was disciplined was filed in April 2016. He alleged the police chief threatened him after he mentioned her son’s criminal record in a city commissioners meeting.

He said she pointed at him and said, ”My son gonna get you,” in front of a group of people, according to the complaint.

The city launched an investigation and found Hobley-Burney brought two officers to a restaurant Reed frequents to discourage him mentioning her son’s arrest at the meeting.

Reed said her actions were intended to “intimidate and coerce me from speaking out.”

Hobley-Burney denied the charge.

“The message was to leave my family out of it,” she testified. “Not to threaten, intimidate, but there was a message.”

Borthland Murray, a special investigator to the office of the chief of police, accused the chief of misusing her power after Reed and Commissioner Reginald B. Sessions expressed their dissatisfaction.

“I was directed by the chief of police to gather any and all information on the citizen and Commissioner Sessions to seek criminal charges,” Murray wrote in a July 2016 letter to the city commission.

When Hobley-Burney was disciplined in July 2016, her notice of disciplinary action indicated further incidents could result in her firing.
