Anna Maria

June 6, 500 block of Bayview Place, information. A woman reportedly received a check for $6,500 from a man interested in renting her home. The check exceeded the rental agreement and the man requested she forward the difference in a money order back to him. The woman told police that she was able to verify the bank account existed but found out the check was apparently altered. All communications with the potential tenant were via e-mail and, according to the report, it appeared to be an Internet check scam.

June 7, 100 S. Bay Blvd., Anna Maria City Pier, found property. A wallet found at Annie’s Bait & Tackle on Cortez Road was turned over to an Anna Maria Sheriff’s Deputy.

June 3, 4000 Gulf Drive, Manatee Public Beach, beverage law. A man sitting out on the fishing pier was arrested for drinking in a prohibited posted area. According to the report, when told to "dump his alcoholic beverage," he proceeded to dump it down his throat - chugging the vodka.

June 3, 699 Manatee Ave., Bank of America, fraud. A man reportedly attempted to cash a bogus check. According to the report, the check was made out to a person with a Bank of America account, but the man attempting to cash the check was unable to provide identification. The bank manager witnessed the man leave in a vehicle and provided officers with the tag number. A police check showed the tag registered to a man currently on probation for a worthless check charge.
