Anna Maria City

June 14, 700 block North Shore Drive, criminal mischief. The complainant said no-parking signs, trash cans and port-a-potties were disturbed along the street. She “observed a young group wearing gothic clothing, walking between the mischief locations,” according to the report. City crews cleaned up the mess and replaced the signs.

June 15, 300 block Magnolia Avenue, suspicious. “An unknown young male driving an unmarked white work van with a latter [sic] rack on top was on Magnolia Avenue,” according to the report. “The unknown young male driver slowed down next to the victim and began to flirt with her by saying that he would give her a ride and that he knew where she lived.” The “victim” went to work at the Anna Maria Island Community Center, and later told her parents when she got home.

June 15, 808 N. Bay Blvd., Anna Maria Motel, theft. The complainant said she lost in excess of $5,000 in room rent between May 22 and May 31.

June 16, 100 block Cedar Avenue, obstruction. Deputies noticed a car driving down Pine Avenue, then pull into a parking lot and continue through back streets, eventually running through a stop sign. “The vehicle saw me and turned onto Cedar Avenue, where all occupants fled on foot,” according to the report. The deputy gave chase, caught one of the vehicle’s occupants, and the other two eventually returned to the car. The car’s driver admitted he took the car without his mother’s permission and that he has only a learner’s permit. He was cited and released to his mother.

June 18, 200 block Gladiolus Street, criminal mischief. The complainant said someone broke the passenger window of her car. Damage was estimated at $100.

Bradenton Beach

June 12, 400 block Gulf Drive South, suspended license. Officers stopped a vehicle with an extinguished license plate light. Record checks revealed the driver had a suspended driver’s license. He was arrested and issued citations for having an open container of beer, as well as for not having a working tag light.

Holmes Beach

June 15, 100 block 77th Street, theft. The complainant told police someone took his wallet, containing $200, credit cards and identification.

June 16, 3248 E. Bay Drive, Walgreens, theft. Officers responded to a complaint and found the store manager outside the establishment with a man who confessed to hiding a bottle of rum in his shorts and leaving the store. He was arrested.
