CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Click Orlando reports:

A Florida man has been arrested and charged after the Palm Bay Police Department said he stole pool floats for sex “instead of raping woman.”

Authorities stopped Christopher Monnin, 35, on his bike around 1:25 a.m. Thursday as a suspicious person. According to officials, in the past seven months, the city of Palm Bay has been plagued with burglaries in which the suspect cuts the screen and enters a victim’s back pool area, stealing only pool floats.

Monnin drove officers to the vacant house where he keeps his pool floats. Officials say there were approximately 75 floats inside, including ones that the victims described. Monnin told authorities that he “sexually gratifies himself” with the pool floats instead of raping women.
