Amy Alvarado, 42, who teaches second grade at an elementary school in Haines City, drove her boyfriend, 30-year-old Brian Fideau, of Winter Haven, to a Winter Haven neighborhood where he exited the car, ran into the open garage and stole a golf bag filled with clubs worth over $2,500, according to a news release from the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

After swiping the clubs, Fideau put them into the car and Alvarado drove away.  At the time, Alvarado's adult son Gerson and a friend of his were also in the car at the time, according to the release.

A neighbor had witnessed the theft and told deputies that the car, a tan Caddy, had been seen in the area in the past.

Later that day patrol deputies spotted the Caddy and conducted a traffic stop and took the driver, identified as Amy Alvarado, and her passenger, Brian Fideau, into custody for an interview.

Alvarado later 'fessed up to stealing the clubs and told deputies they went to Play It Again Sports in Winter Haven, where she sold the clubs for $180.00, signing a form stating that she was the owner of the property, the affidavit stated.

Fideau denied involvement in the crime. The clubs were located by deputies at Play It Again Sports, deputies said.

Alvarado's son, 22-year-old Gerson Alvarado, who was in the car during the theft, is currently on probation for Robbery. He was arrested and charged with Violation of Probation, along with Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Paraphernalia. He was previously arrested in February 2011 for Robbery and three counts VOP (original charges, Possession of Marijuana and Paraphernalia); and in June 2010 for Possession of Alcohol by a Minor, the report stated.

Deputies found some pot on Gerson’s pal, 23-year-old Marlon Arrindell, who was also in the car during the theft and when deputies conducted the traffic stop. He was arrested and charged with Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Paraphernalia -- and had just bonded out of jail the day prior, on November 19th after being busted by Winter Haven cops for Petit Theft and Resisting Arrest.

Amy Alvarado was charged with Burglary To A Dwelling, Grand Theft, Dealing in Stolen Property, and False Verification to a Pawn Broker.

Brian Fideau was also busted and charged with Burglary To A Dwelling, Grand Theft, Dealing in Stolen Property, Possession of Marijuana, and Possession of Paraphernalia. He was recently busted in September for knowingly driving while his license was suspended or revoked.
