An outing to an Oldsmar pawn shop ended with felony charges and a trip to jail for a Palm Harbor man.
According to an arrest affidavit, Thomas Michael Bliss, 23, is serving a two-year probation as a result of a drug charge and is required to serve home detention at his residence on Tarpon Woods Boulevard. But Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies say Bliss left his home on several occasions and went to the Pawn Max on Tampa Road in Oldsmar to pawn items.
The affidavit says Bliss tried to pawn a 10-karat gold women's ring at the Pawn Max and gave the clerk a stolen Florida driver's license, using it as his own identification.
Deputies arrested Bliss on a charge of false verification of ownership and possession of a controlled substance in June. On Oct. 16, he was also charged with felony violation of parole and was transferred to the Pasco County Jail in Land O' Lakes.
