Storage area is scene of recent Manatee burglary

MANATEE -- A storage facility where motor homes are parked in the 7200 block of U.S. 301 North was the site of a burglary sometime in the past 90 days.

Sometime between Nov. 1 and Dec. 12 burglars cut through the lock on the front gate to the storage facility, according to a sheriff’s office report.

Once inside the facility, the suspects entered a motor home and two travel trailers by prying open the doors and breaking the windows, the report states.

A total of $50 in bills and $6 in change was removed, the report adds.

One unit had a microwave taken out of it. None of the owners could be contacted Sunday, so they will be tried again today, the report states.
