Drug sting corrals one dealer

The Bradenton Beach Police Department and a Holmes Beach police officer working with a confidential informant scooped up a drug dealer May 11 in a drug sting that went down as planned.

According to reports, at about 6 p.m. Detective Sgt. Lenard Diaz met with a reliable confidential informant, identified in the report only as a woman, who said that a man, later identified as Warren Scott Kinder Jr., 22, of Bradenton, would deliver rock (crack) cocaine to Bradenton Beach and sell the cocaine to the informant.

Arrangements were made for Kinder to deliver the cocaine later that evening to an address in the 1800 block of Gulf Drive.

The deal eventually went down, with the informant using $200 in pre-marked $20 bills.

As officers moved in to make the arrest, blue lights running and sirens blaring, Kinder attempted to get away from the cops, driving around the patrol cars and unmarked police vehicles, spinning his tires in the grass and driving down the wrong side of the road, according to the report. Officers managed to corral Kinder and the chase ended a block away as they surrounded the car with guns drawn and Kinder was taken to the ground at gunpoint.

Officers recovered 3.5 grams of crack cocaine (25 pieces), a gram of marijuana, the $200 used to make the purchase and $180 that Kinder had in his possession. They also seized the vehicle.

Kinder was charged with sale of cocaine, a second-degree felony, fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement, a third-degree felony, and possession of marijuana under 20 grams, a first-degree misdemeanor. Kinder was transported to the Manatee County Jail.

According to Manatee County court records, Warren Kinder has a previous arrest record. In 2003, Kinder was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and criminal mischief. In 2004, he was arrested for possession of marijuana.
