No new reports.

Bradenton Beach

March 21, 2513 Gulf Drive, Circle K, assault on a law enforcement officer. Officers responded to a call of a van in the store parking lot with broken windows. Upon arrival and during a warrant check, the driver of the vehicle exited the van and refused to return to the vehicle after several requests by officers. When he finally did return to the vehicle, he told officers, “I’ve got crack running through my veins and I want to hit you in the face right now,” according to the report. Officers took his comment as a threat and warned him to calm down, whereupon he said, “Take me to jail,” and held out his arms. Officers complied.

Holmes Beach

March 20, 3900 E. Bay Drive, Publix, shoplifting. Officers responded to a possible shoplifting complaint and learned that two women had walked from the store with deli sandwiches, canned goods and other items without paying for them. A witness and store employee followed the couple and noted the vehicle tag. Officers viewed the surveillance video, ran the tag and went to the home of the registered owner of the vehicle. Her description matched one of the women on the tape, she admitted to taking the items from the store, said she would return to the store to pay for them, and store officials said later that she did pay for the items.

March 21, 3304 E. Bay Drive, Island Bazarre, theft. A store clerk said someone took her purse, containing credit cards, a driver’s license and $78. She said surveillance cameras monitor the store and a tape was available for police.

March 25, 3900 E. Bay Drive, Publix, battery. Officers responded to a report of a fight between a man and woman. The woman said she and her husband had gotten into an argument regarding which stop on the trolley they should use, and when they got home he grabbed her. She pushed away from him, according to the report, and ran to Publix. Witnesses to the altercation called police, and the woman said she wanted him arrested. He was taken to jail.
