Villagers’ son may be seeing some tough love after jailed in ripoff of residents at pool 

Jamie Bryan Fisch

The son of a Villages couple appears to be experiencing some tough love after his recent arrest in the theft of residents’ valuables from the Colony Sports Pool.

Jamie Bryan Fisch, 40, continued to be held Sunday at the Sumter County Detention Center on a growing list of charges following his arrest Feb. 1 at his parents’ home at 2993 Amherst Way in the Village of Fernandina.

Fisch appears in surveillance footage making multiple trips in January into the Colony Sports Pool and changing area, where he reportedly stole keys, cash, credit cards, jewelry, clothing, a cell phone and other valuables. He changed clothes between trips in an attempt to disguise himself, according to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office.

Bond for the Queens, N.Y. native, whose parents purchased their home in The Villages in 2013 for $465,500, is set at $32,500.

Fisch had also been arrested in 2017 at this parents’ home in connection with the theft of a wallet at Colony Cottage Recreation Center. That time, Fisch spent a couple of days in jail before being bonded out. Attorney Wesley Scott Wynn was retained to represent Fisch. About one year ago – Feb. 16, 2018 – Fisch was allowed to enter into a pre-trial intervention contact. The prosecutor’s office announced March 26 that the case against Fisch was being dismissed.

This time, Fisch has completed paperwork indicating he is indigent, according to court records. That means he likely will be represented by the public defender’s office.
