Anna Maria City

April 14, failure to appear. A Sarasota man was arrested for failing to appear in court regarding several traffic tickets he had received. The man was stopped after police saw him driving at a high rate of speed on Gulf Drive at Willow Avenue. At first the driver refused to stop even after police turned on the patrol car lights and sounded his siren twice. When the man did stop, he told police he was in a hurry to get home and was trying to get past a driver in front of him who he said was going too slow.

April 16, criminal mischief. A limousine driver's car was struck three times and dented by someone using a BB gun or slingshot.

Bradenton Beach – no reports

Holmes Beach

April 9, driver's license. After stopping a driver for having one headlight out, the man was given a ticket for never having been issued a drivers license. The owner of the car only had a learner's permit and was not allowed to take the car. A relative of the car owner presented police with a valid Florida license and drove the car away

April 10, traffic hazard. A North Carolina woman had her car towed after it was found blocking the north entrance to Manatee Public Beach.

April 10, bench down. Police found a bench at White Avenue had been damaged by vandals.

April 11, driving while license revoked. A man was stopped for failing to yield to traffic headed north on Gulf Drive in front of Manatee Public Beach. An officer said he had to brake his vehicle hard to avoid hitting the driver, who was turning north on Gulf Drive from Manatee Avenue. When police asked for the man's driver's license, the man produced an identification card. Police ran a criminal records check and found the man's license had been revoked for five years as a habitual traffic offender. He was arrested and taken to the Manatee County Jail.

April 13, driving while license suspended. A New Mexico man was arrested and taken to Manatee County Jail when it was discovered he was knowingly driving on a suspended license.

April 16, criminal mischief. A woman found four small dents in the side of her car after she finished shopping at Walgreen's. Police believe the dents were caused by a pellet gun.

April 16, auto theft. A Bradenton man was arrested for car theft after the owner of the truck allowed the man to take his truck so the man could buy sheet rock at Home Depot. When the man didn't return at the agreed-upon time of 3 p.m., the owner tried to file a stolen-vehicle affidavit, but police told him he couldn't file one while he was drunk. The owner filed the affidavit the next day and police were able to find the alleged car thief through the man's girlfriend.
