Man charged with construction burglary, child neglect

Two people were arrested June 26 after allegedly involving the children of one suspect in a burglary at an Anna Maria construction site.

Trevor John Bjurstrom, 29, and Nicole Denise Asman, 42, each face a charge of grand theft from a posted construction site.

Bjurstrom also faces charges of child neglect and trespassing on a construction site.

Bjurstrom and Asman allegedly drove to a fenced-in construction site in the 700 block of North Shore Drive around 6:20 p.m., according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s office report.

Bjurstrom allegedly took his two children, ages 6 and 8, inside the fence and began handing them rebar and wiring to take to Asman, who remained on the other side of the enclosure. Asman then loaded the material into the car, the report said. The contractor for the site is Beach to Bay Construction.

Both Bjurstrom and Asman were arrested and taken to the Manatee County jail. The children were placed in the custody of Florida Department of Children and Families’ Child Protective Services.

Bjurstrom is being held on $4,500 bond, while Asman is being held on a $1,500 bond.
