An observant witness helped lead the Holmes Beach Police Department to the identification of a suspect in the theft of a wagon stocked with children’s toys.
The theft occurred May 10 in the 4600 block of the beach.
From a rental property on 46th Street, a vacationing family walked to the Gulf shore with a wagon loaded with beach toys, as well as towels and other items.
They left their possessions on the beach when they went back to their rental home for lunch. When they returned about an hour later, the wagon was missing.
A neighbor later told the family she saw two women, both described as heavy set and about 40, take the wagon. They left in a white vehicle with “Margaritaville” on a side panel and a Florida license plate.
An HBPD officer checked the plate number and found it was the tag for a white 2003 Toyota four-door registered to a Bradenton woman.
The investigation is ongoing.
