Streetlife

Anna Maria City

Jan. 20, 301 N. Bay Blvd., criminal mischief. Someone painted graffiti on the outside walls of the rest rooms and on a parked tanker at Bayfront Park. Deputies did not believe the “tags” were gang related.

Jan. 25, Palmetto and Gulf drives, hit and run. Deputies noticed a fire hydrant tilted at a 45-degree angle and suspected it had been hit by a dual-axle vehicle. Damage to the hydrant was estimated at $1,000.

 

Bradenton Beach

Jan. 21, 500 block Gulf Drive South, disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest with violence. Police were dispatched to deal with an apparently intoxicated couple on Bridge Street. Police took the pair to Coquina Beach to sober up. Several hours later, police were called again and located the same couple arguing as they walked back from the beach toward Bridge Street. The woman attempted to run away from officers, and was nearly hit by the Island Trolley. She was handcuffed and placed in a patrol car, when she began to kick the windows of the vehicle. She was pepper-sprayed in an attempt to quiet her and then taken to jail.

Jan. 22, 200 block Gulf Drive North, possession of controlled substance. While on a routine traffic stop for a tail light being out on a vehicle, police officers discovered an unlabeled prescription pill bottle in the vehicle and charged Jon Joseph Laframboise, 31, of Flint, Mich., with illegal possession.

Jan. 23, 300 block Bay Drive South, possession of controlled substance. Officers noticed a man lying on a bench near the water. Upon checking his identification, it was discovered he had an outstanding warrant, and while arresting Nathaniel Eugene Hull, 18, homeless, officers discovered a bag of marijuana in his possession.

 

Holmes Beach

Jan. 20, 500 block Key Royale Drive, drugs. Officers noticed a car speed across the Key Royale Bridge and stopped the vehicle. Noting a strong odor of burning marijuana, officers searched the driver, Kevin Mayer, 18, of Tampa, and discovered a baggie containing marijuana. Also arrested on drug possession charges were passengers Justin Rickrode, 19, and Michael Alexander, 19, both of Bradenton.

Jan. 22, 7100 block Palm Drive, battery. Officers responded to a call of an argument in which a woman was struck in the head by her male friend. Officers noticed some swelling to her ear, but reports as to how the matter began were contradictory. She said she wanted him to leave, and police advised her on how to get legal proceedings under way for his departure, and he then left the house.

Jan. 23, 7100 block Palm Drive, battery. Police again responded to a domestic argument apparently continued from the day before. The man said the woman hit him in the face, and officers noticed a swollen eye. The man then left the house.

Jan. 23, 7100 block Palm Drive, disorderly conduct. Officers responded to a call from a man who said he and his mother had been arguing and he wanted police to try to calm her down. Officers did routine checks on all the people involved and discovered the man, who had phoned them, had outstanding warrants for disorderly conduct. He was taken to jail.

Jan. 24, 3600 block East Bay Drive, driver's license. During a routine traffic stop, officers discovered the driver of the vehicle had outstanding warrants for possession of marijuana and driving with a suspended license, as well as several revocations of his driver's license from other states. He was taken to jail.

Jan. 24, 248 S. Harbor Drive, St. Bernard Catholic Church, fraud. Church members said they were attempting to give a man a check for $310 to aid him with his rent and medical bills, but upon calling the number allegedly for the man's landlord, it was noticed to be ringing in the man's truck, where another man was sitting. Church members advised the man not to attempt to cash the check they had just given him, and when he left they followed him to a local bank where he attempted to cash the check. He was approached by the church group, and subsequently left the bank.

Jan. 25, 6700 block Gulf Drive, burglary. The complainant said someone had removed his suitcase and two bags of coffee from his unlocked truck.

Jan. 25, 6000 block Gulf Drive, burglary. The complainant said someone had entered his unlocked truck and removed change and a set of keys.

Jan. 25, 5600 block Gulf Drive, burglary. The complainant said someone had removed a set of jumper cables from what he believed was his unlocked vehicle.
