H.A. Doe alleged Collins arrested her in April 2009 and she gave him a false name. She said he offered to make the charge “go away” and drove her to a dark alley in South Wilkes-Barre where he forced her to perform a sex act on him. She said she stopped before it was completed, angering Collins who drove her to police headquarters and filed charges against her.
The four women alleged Collins, through his actions, deprived them of their constitutional rights against unlawful search and seizure and denied them due process. In addition, they alleged the city was equally responsible because it knew of his misconduct and failed to prevent it. They asked for a trial, damages in excess of $50,000 and unspecified relief from the court.
Neighbors told News4Jax it’s unfortunate because the house was once a beautiful home on the water but got overrun with drugs. Another neighbor said he would like to see it burned to the ground due to its bad condition.
This is not the first time the house has been investigated. In 2013, deputies responded to a possible meth lab. Seven people, including Suit, were arrested. Two people were charged with aggravated battery and possession of cocaine. The others were charged with unlawful possession of listed chemicals to manufacture meth. Clay County Fire Rescue was called to clear the scene due to the presence of the chemicals.
