Peterson III

What began with a report of a burglary in progress in Anna Maria ended with a pair of arrests.

William Peterson III, 25, who is listed as homeless from Lake Park, was arrested Aug. 13 for burglary.

In connection with the same incident, Tiffany Concilus, 35, of Bradenton, was arrested for battery and criminal mischief.

At about noon, a resident in the 200 block of Oak Avenue, although not at home, alerted the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office that his video surveillance camera showed a man wrap his hand in cloth, punch out the front glass door and remove two Sig Sauer pistols and an AR15 from the home.

The video also showed a woman keying a white Prius in the driveway.

Holmes Beach Police Officer Mike Walker arrived at the scene and began speaking with the woman, who ran up to the victim and punched him in the face.

MCSO deputies Pete Papas and Steven Stewart arrested Peterson and Concilus, who were transported to the Manatee County jail.

According to MCSO reports, Deputy Richard Snyder reported arresting Concilus twice Aug. 23 on allegations she violated a domestic relations order.

MCSO suggested additional charges for Peterson while he was in jail, with probable cause affidavits adding grand theft of a firearm and a misdemeanor theft for a woman’s purse. MCSO issued Peterson a notice to appear in court for the purse theft.

Peterson was released from jail after posting $21,500 in bond.

The court initially granted Concilus’ release from jail on a pretrial program, but after the Aug. 23 arrests, 12th Circuit Judge Edward Nicholas ordered her to return to jail without bond.

Arraignments on the Peterson and Concilus cases are set for 9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 14, at the Manatee County Judicial Center, 1051 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton.
