Anna Maria City

Feb. 5, Kingfish Boat Ramp, possible controlled substance, no valid driver’s license. A sheriff’s deputy en route to work in Anna Maria saw a car with its high-beam lights on. When the driver would not dim the vehicle’s lights, the deputy pulled him over. The license tag was expired, the driver did not have a valid driver’s license and white powder found in the vehicle tested positive for cocaine. Elmer Ubonilla Arias, 19, of Bradenton, was arrested.

Jan. 19, city pier, stolen boat. The complainant said he moored his 28-foot sailboat at the pier and when he returned it was gone. A search of the area, and review of the video tapes of the area by the pier, provided no information.

Jan. 27, 12100 Cortez Road, drugs. Officers noticed a car make an abrupt turn onto Cortez Road from Gulf Drive. Officers followed the car across the bridge and noticed several plastic bags being thrown from the vehicle. Once the vehicle was stopped, three bags were recovered and the contents tested positive for cocaine and marijuana. The vehicle driver, Nathan Dawes, 30, of Bradenton, and passenger Roderick W. McCown Jr., 22, of Palmetto, were arrested.
