In a report from Channel 8 News, a Port Richey man allegedly used the food delivery app DoorDash to stalk his ex-girlfriend. Reports show that he also caused $1,000 in damages to her relatives home after showing up unannounced and threatening her.
This dude clearly has some rejection issues. Early in the morning on July 10, Michael Seitz, who has two previous arrests on misdemeanor charges in Pasco County, went to the home where his ex-girlfriend was staying at. When he found that she wasn’t there, he started to steal her belongings that totaled to about $500. According to police reports, he then called his ex 25 times and sent her 80 messages on Facebook before she stopped location sharing and turned off her cell phone.
This is the scary part: Deputies are still unsure how he did it, but somehow he was able to find her location through the DoorDash app. He saw the last address she had food delivered to and packed her stolen belongings in a U-Haul and went to pick her up. Reports said he even sent her a chilling photo before he left and the photo of the house she was staying at when he arrived.
According to the affidavit, he told the woman: “Get out here b4 [sic] I turn the block n’ ram this U-Haul through the house.” He was then recorded on surveillance footage driving p and down the road of the house several times. Eventually he got fed up and crashed the U-Haul into a basketball hoop and a mailbox, causing the hoop to fall and damage a parked car.
Seitz fled the scene and was later located and arrested on charges of aggravated stalking (domestic), grand theft (from dwelling or curtilage, $100 to $750) and criminal mischief over $1,000. He is currently being held at the Land O’ Lakes Detention Center.
