Bond reduction hearing moved

The two suspects in the April 17 home invasion in Anna Maria involving former Anna Maria City Commissioner Linda Cramer had their bond hearing moved from June 11 to June 16.

 Christopher Drescher and Michael Gambuzza are asking the court to lower the current bond of $175,000 each to a lesser amount. Typically, suspects are able to post bail with 10 percent of the bond amount.

The two men were formally charged on June 6 by prosecutors with one count each of home invasion and robbery, a first-degree felony, and one count each of false imprisonment, a third-degree felony.

Drescher has already entered a not guilty plea to the charges, while Gambuzza had not yet made a declaration as of press deadline on June 13. Both men are represented by court-appointed attorneys.
