BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday night took Steven S. Greenberg of Villa Son Risa Drive into custody and charged him with contempt of court for allegedly violating a “domestic violence protection injunction.”
Greenberg, 52, remains in the Palm Beach County Jail this morning following his first appearance in court at 9am. Bond is set at $5,000.
BocaNewsNow.com has obtained the arrest affidavit and learned that it concerns a rifle that he was ordered to turn into the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office but did not do so. According to the report:
“The order states that Greenberg is to surrender all weapons and specifically stated turn over the rifle belonging to his son. I contacted the PBSO evidence division and was advised that the only firearm in PBSO custody was a 357 smith and wesson handgun. I located Greenberg at his place of employment. He was taken into custody and mirandized. Post Miranda, Greenberg told me, “I just didn’t get around to turning it in.” I inquired as to where the rifle was and he stated at his home and agreed to surrender it over to the Sheriff’s Office. Upon arrival at his home … Greenberg pointed to several locations within his home where he said the rifle was to include several closets and under a bed. After being unable to find the gun Greenberg then said he did not have the key to his garage.”
Greenberg remained in the Palm Beach County Jail, on $5,000 bond, Wednesday afternoon.
