Anna Maria City

Dec. 8, 100 S. Bay Blvd., city pier, criminal mischief. The pier manager said someone broke into a storage area and took paper products. Damage was $10. The manager said he suspected fishers in the area as the culprits.

Dec. 9, 100 Spring Ave., Sandbar Restaurant, theft. Someone driving a maroon-colored pickup truck took a moped from the restaurant parking lot.

Bradenton Beach

Nov. 30, 2513 Gulf Drive, Circle K, theft. The store manager and district manager noted a clerk had taken approximately $28 from the cash register. The clerk admitted to the theft. She was issued a trespass warning and charged with theft.

Dec. 3, 2300 block Gulf Drive, license. Officers responded to a vehicle crash where one vehicle left the scene. While running a record check on the errant vehicle, the vehicle was spotted passing them. Officers stopped the truck and determined the man driving did not have a driver’s license. He denied striking any vehicle. He was arrested.

Holmes Beach

Dec. 5, 100 block 64th Street, drugs. Bradenton police notified Holmes Beach officers that the driver of a vehicle heading toward the Island appeared to be smoking marijuana. Officers stopped the car and noticed a strong smell of marijuana. Edward B. Wiley-Jones, 26, of Bradenton, produced a glass jar and plastic bag, both filled with marijuana, and he was charged and issued a notice to appear in court. 

Dec. 5, 100 block 67th Street, burglary. The complainant said someone entered her home while she was out of town and took a television set and DVD player. Entry was apparently through a sliding-glass door.

Dec. 6, 400 block 28th Street, theft. The complainant said she was cleaning a residence and noticed her husband’s coin collection was missing. She said many people had been in and out of the residence since she lived there. The collection was valued at $25,000.

Dec. 6, 4300 Gulf Drive, resisting arrest, impersonation. Officers stopped a man in July for a traffic violation and driving with an expired license. He was charged for both infractions. In September, he failed to appear in court and a bench warrant was issued. In December, the state attorney’s office declined to prosecute because the man charged with the traffic infractions died 11 days before he was stopped by police. An investigation revealed the man who was stopped was a relative of the deceased and was falsely using his identification, as his license was suspended at the time of the traffic stop. He was charged with false display of another’s driver’s license and the traffic infractions.

Dec. 6, 700 block Manatee Avenue, drugs. Officers noticed a vehicle driving at a high rate of speed on Manatee Avenue. When getting his driver’s license, officers noticed a plastic bag in the driver’s lap that turned out to contain marijuana and oxycodone and morphine pills. David M. Layne, 47, of Bradenton, admitted to having the marijuana and pills and was arrested.

Dec. 10, 3008 Ave. C, Air America, battery. An employee of the company said his employer yelled at him regarding a job he had done, pushed him into a wooden fence and then fired him. Witnesses backed up the events as described by the employee. A trespass warning was issued to the employee, and battery charges were filed against the employer.

Dec. 11, 2900 block Avenue E, burglary. The complainant said she put her purse on her kitchen counter the night before and it was missing the next day. Missing were credit cards, eyeglasses and a sweater. She contacted her bank, and several charges had been made on her credit cards. A sliding-glass door was open and was the apparent means of entry to the house.
