Florida Man, 73, Banned From Beaches For 'Seeking His Sugarbaby,' Officials Say

- A 73-year-old Daytona Beach, Florida, man was banned from all Volusia County beaches for six months recently after he was accused of handing out business cards that said, “Sugardaddy seeking his sugarbaby.”

Richard G. Basaraba was confronted by Volusia County Beach Safety officers Saturday after a mother complained that her 16-year-old daughter had received one of the business cards, an incident report said.

The girl told investigators that Basaraba came up to her and a group of her friends and handed one the card, the report said.

While her friends were 18 years old, the girl said she told Basaraba that she was 16, officials said.

He is accused of continuing to talk to the girl, and at one point, he pulled out a bra padding he was carrying, “saying he was looking for someone who would fill it,” the report said.

Basaraba told the girl, “You would be perfect,” the report said.

Officers stopped Basaraba as he was walking on North Atlantic Avenue.

When one asked him if he knew why he was being stopped, Basaraba said, “Yes, I was talking to some young females on the beach that were all over 18 years old,” the incident report said.

Basaraba was ordered to stay away from all Volusia County beaches, including walkovers and approaches, for six months for violating a county ordinance prohibiting solicitation on the beach, officers said.
