No new reports.

Bradenton Beach

Sept. 16, 2513 Gulf Drive N., Circle K, theft. The complainant said she was getting gas when an acquaintance asked her for a ride. She said he asked her about a bag in the car, and she said it contained prescription drugs she had picked up for a friend. The man jumped from the car with the pills while she was slowing down, ran between buildings and disappeared. The man, who was not located, took 90 oxycodone pills.

Sept. 21, 1600 Gulf Drive S., Coquina Beach, DUI. Officers responded to a call of a vehicle in the Gulf of Mexico with the driver still in it. The Jeep was partially submerged, and the driver was turning the ignition key in an attempt to start the vehicle, which was sinking. The driver, Delmore Dean Holstrom, 23, of Bradenton Beach, rolled up the window when he saw officers approach and refused to exit the vehicle, according to the report. An officer entered the water and escorted Holstrom from the vehicle and, as he was uncooperative, he was handcuffed and placed in a patrol car. A witness told officers he watched Holstrom attempt to back a personal watercraft from a trailer into the water several times, jackknifing the trailer, and then falling after he exited the Jeep. He then re-entered the vehicle and completely backed it into the water. Empty beer cans were found in the vehicle after it was towed to shore. Holstrom refused to take field sobriety tests or a breath test, and was charged with DUI and taken to jail. It also was determined that his license was suspended.

Holmes Beach

Sept. 19, 3018 Ave. C, Air & Energy. The complainant said someone took scrap copper and aluminum from a secured area overnight. The complainant reviewed security video and determined that two middle-aged men driving a light-colored four-door sedan had pulled up in the area overnight.

Sept. 20, 400 block 62nd Street, theft. The complainant said someone took the front light from his mother’s scooter.

Sept. 21, 5410 Marina Drive, D.Coy Ducks, theft. The complainant said someone took her golf cart, valued at $3,500, from the parking lot in front of the bar. The cart was discovered a short time later in a different parking lot adjacent to the shopping center, and officers determined it had been taken for a joy ride. It was returned to the owner.

Sept. 21, 5410 Marina Drive, D.Coy ducks, vehicle burglary. The complainant said someone took her wallet, containing credit cards, $60 and identification, from her rental car while she was in the bar.
