ST. PETE BEACH – Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies believe a homeless man may have stayed as long as five days at a St. Pete Beach hotel after taking over a previous guest’s room.

David Gordon Price, 32, formerly of Altamonte Springs, was arrested May 31 and charged with felony defrauding an innkeeper and grand theft.

Deputies responded to the Don CeSar Hotel, 3400 Gulf Blvd. in St. Pete Beach, about 4:30 p.m. May 31.

According to the sheriff’s report, hotel personnel discovered the Price’s belonging in a prior guest’s room. Deputies said the guest staying in the room was scheduled to check out Saturday. When hotel staff went to check on the room, they discovered luggage and a driver’s license that did not match the original guest. Deputies said the license belonged to Price.

While at the hotel, deputies made contact with Price’s father who came to the hotel to pick up Price’s items. The father had just bonded Price out of the Pinellas County Jail. The son had been arrested at 6 a.m. May 31 by the St. Petersburg Police Department for disorderly intoxication, providing a false name or identification to a law enforcement officer, petit theft and a warrant out of Alachua County for defrauding an Innkeeper.

Deputies said Price was found nearby on Gulf Boulevard and was arrested. He was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.

Deputies said Price may have been in the room for about three to five days and may have incurred in excess of $3,000 worth of charges on the previous guest’s credit card.
