Deputies said the complainants said three men walked up to them, produced a silver colored handgun, and told them to take off their clothes and get into the water. The robbers then stole a variety of the fishers’ gear, placed it into a white vehicle and fled east on Manatee Avenue.

Oct. 4, nudity on beach, Bean Point. Deputies said a complainant said a man was sunbathing nude on Bean Point. When deputies arrived, a man with swim trunks was at the beach. He was told that being naked on the beach was not appropriate and he left.

Oct. 5, assist paramedics, 401 Pine Ave. Deputies arrived on scene to assist paramedics with an elderly woman who had fallen. She was transported to Blake Medical Center.

Oct. 5, assist, 500 block Blue Heron Drive. Deputies arrived on scene to aid paramedics with a victim who had fallen off a ladder while cutting tree limbs.

Holmes Beach

Sept. 27, death, 2900 block of Avenue C. Police responded to where a man was pronounced dead. There were no suspicious circumstances involving his death, according to police.

Sept. 29, expired driver’s license, 2800 block Gulf Drive. Officers saw a man driving at a high rate of speed and, upon stopping him, found his driver’s license was expired. He was cited for speeding and having an expired license.

Sept. 29, defrauding innkeeper, Beach View Rental, 3109 Ave. F. Renters said they would stay a week at an apartment but only gave a small amount of money to the innkeeper. After several days and several stories as to why the money was not paid, the rental agent entered the apartment when it was unoccupied, took a laptop computer and copier that were there, and left a note saying the items would be returned when payment for the room was made. He placed the equipment in his office and left and, when he returned later, saw both the computer and copier gone, as well as the renters.

Sept. 29, noise, 300 block 61st Street. Officers responded to a complaint of loud noise from a party. After agreeing to turn down the music, the party continued and officers again responded, this time issuing a citation.

Sept. 30, driver’s license, 7000 Palm Ave. Officers stopped a man on a motorcycle with a young child on the back. The child was wearing a bicycle helmet, not a motorcycle helmet, and further checks revealed the driver did not have a motorcycle endorsement on his driver’s license.

Sept. 30, driver’s license, 4100 Gulf Drive. A routine traffic stop revealed that the driver of the vehicle did not have a valid driver’s license.

Oct. 2, driver’s license, East Bay Drive and Gulf Drive. Officers observed a motorcyclist run a red light. The motorcyclist did not have motorcyclist endorsement on his license and did not have the license with him. He was cited.
