No reports.

 

Bradenton Beach

Dec. 29, 2300 Avenue B, trespass. The complainant said that a woman had tried to take advantage of his mother by charging her for doing odd jobs, and the woman was issued a trespass warning.

 

Holmes Beach

Jan. 5. 3232 E. Bay Drive, Subway, battery. Officers responded to a battery, in which an employee’s ex-girlfriend hit him twice in the face, according to the report. He declined to press charges.

Jan. 5, 4000 Gulf Drive, Manatee Public Beach, trespass. Officers were stopped by a woman who complained about another Holmes Beach officer who previously had placed her in custody under the Baker Act. Further investigation revealed she had also been issued a trespass warning for the beach and she was arrested.

Jan. 6, 500 block 67th Street, theft. The complainant said that during a garage sale at his home someone took his backpack of tools, a Palm Pilot and prescription drugs.

Jan. 6, 4900 block Gulf Drive, criminal mischief. The complainant said that someone had broken into one of her vacant apartments and painted graffiti on the walls.

Jan. 6, 5406 Marina Drive, Island Shopping Center, suspicious. The complainant said that a man had been living in his van in the shopping center and his dog was in the van barking. Officers spoke to the man, who admitted he was living in the van, but had only slept there overnight a few times. Officers informed the man of city no-camping laws and he moved his vehicle. Code enforcement was also notified of the situation.

Jan. 6, 600 block North Point Drive, theft. The complainant said he had hired a man to do construction work on his home. The worker requested a $20 cash advance and, when the complainant refused to pay him until the work was completed, the worker took two saws and drove off. The complainant attempted to find the worker, to no avail. Value of the saws was placed at $538. The worker was later located and told officers the complainant had bought the saws for him to perform the work needed and that he had paid the complainant for them during the course of several months. The tools were eventually turned over to police, who returned them to the complainant, who declined to prosecute.
