Politics, Truckload of merchandise, and Organized Retail Crime come together in Melbourne, FL  A Brevard County Commission candidate and her husband said a criminal investigation against them is politically motivated. We first told you Thursday that the Brevard County Sheriff's office searched the Ice Cream Depot in West Melbourne, co-owned by county commission hopeful Lisa McDermott. We were there when BCSO investigators handed over a search warrant. James McDermott and his wife Lisa have run the Ice Cream Depot for years. It’s a place McDermott has used as home base for his eBay selling business. The pair are under investigation for alleged money laundering and dealing in stolen merchandise. Investigators said James McDermott was the ring leader. McDermott said a well-dressed man came in the business last year and asked if he bought merchandise. Soon after, he bought a truckload of products from the man, enough to fill two rooms inside the business -- a one-time deal. "He brought it in garbage bags. I didn't know any of this was stolen," said McDermott. Later McDermott said the man stole things from his store, so McDermott kicked him out and told him to never come back. And that man, who he said is now in jail, has a vendetta against him. (Source
