MANATEE — A Myakka City man was charged with 24 pawn-related thefts from his family at 11:30 a.m. Friday, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.

Tatum Shaw, 33, was charged at the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office Operations Center, 600 Highway 301 Blvd. W., Bradenton.

According to an arrest warrant, Shaw’s father — who allowed Shaw and his girlfriend to live with him and his wife — noticed several tools, weapons and lawn equipment had gone missing in May. Deputies said Shaw’s mother packed up Shaw’s belongings May 28 and told him to move out.

Shaw’s parents contacted the sheriff’s office June 3 to file a third report of missing property, including a weed eater and pry bar. Upon investigating, deputies found Shaw pawned the items for $75.

Shaw was charged with 11 counts of giving false information to pawn broker and 13 counts of dealing in stolen property. He was being held in Manatee County on bonds totaling $114,000, according to the sheriff’s office website.
