This happy news just in from Miami PD: On February 14, 2012, at approximately 1:20 p.m., a white male subject posing as a flower delivery man knocked on the door a house located at 30 SW 59th Ave. Once the victim (Scheryl Garcia) opened the door, the subject, armed with a gun, forced his way in and demanded money.
