MANATEE -- A man was charged with burglary, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
Brandon Stover, 29, was arrested Thursday. On Nov. 28, deputies said the victim heard someone knock on her front door in the 200 block of 27th Street East in Palmetto but because of physical ailments, she was slow to come to the door.
According to a report, when the victim reached the front door, she saw a white male loading her lawn furniture into a bluish/gray Dodge Dakota truck. She yelled at the suspect, later identified as Stover, but he ignored her and drove away with the furniture.
The victim described Stover to a deputy who, in turn, contacted Manatee Metals recycling center. The clerk at the center told the deputy that Stover had just come into the scrap yard with lawn furniture matching that of the victim's.
