‘I was a little shocked’: Man accused of making homemade bottled water delivery

A man who made homemade bottled delivery water delivery has been charged with making the delivery himself, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.

Shannon Bowers, 30, of Tallahassee was arrested Monday after authorities said he made a delivery from his home to the Tarpon Springs Water Company in Tallahasssee, which was shut down on Jan. 2.

He was charged with felony tampering with public property, a first-degree misdemeanor.

The Tarpons Springs Water Co. shut down for several hours Monday, Jan. 8, after receiving a call from an employee who reported seeing a man inside the facility making homemade deliveries to customers, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

A man wearing a T-shirt with the words “Chew it up” was seen at the water company’s parking lot, according the affidavit.

The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Board says in a statement that Bowers has been suspended from his job as a delivery driver.

Bowers was arrested at a home in Pinellas County, Fla., and transported to the Broward County Jail, where he was released on $50,000 bail, according, the commission said.
