PORT CHARLOTTE — While authorities were setting up for an undercover operation to bust illegal sexual activity Wednesday afternoon, a man came to them and spoke to one deputy in an inappropriate manner, according to a Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office report.
Around 4 p.m. at Sunrise Park — on Edgewater Drive — Gary Joseph Rossitter, 67, of Ontario, Canada, rode by on a bicycle and reportedly stared down a group of deputies getting ready to head to another park for an undercover operation. One of the deputies — believing Rossitter may be looking for a “male companion” — approached the man and explained he and the other half-dozen or so authorities were just friends there to play football, the report shows.
