St. Petersburg Police Update - Feb 11, 2019

Web article 2-11-2019 SPPD Update

Over the past 6 days the following crimes occurred.

  • Residential Burglary on Feb. 8th during the night at 1325 Snell Isle Blvd NE, a bike was stolen from the enclosed garage again from the Water Club at Snell Isle. There are no suspects.
  • Vehicle Burglary on Feb. 5th between 11 am and 12 pm at 135 Riviera Way NE, to an unlocked work truck. Ipad and cooler taken with no suspects.
  • Vehicle Burglary on Feb. 7th between 7 and 730 am at 1000 Brightwaters Blvd NE, to another unlocked work truck.
  • Grand Theft on between Feb. 3rd and 8th, at 1731 Brightwaters Blvd NE, dock box taken from dock. No suspects.

The work truck burglaries may have been committed by the stolen Black vehicle, but no vehicle was seen.

We’ve spoken with SPPD’s Asst Chief particularly noting a specific criminal, DAVID SHIVERS, assisting a number of south side children learn the ropes of committing crimes over multiple counties! He was sent to jail last July for 1-year for drug-related offenses, stolen cars, petty thefts, etc. but was released from jail on December 30th… WHY, I wish I knew but that’s an issue for our State’s Attorney’s Office! We strongly suspect he is helping to drive up our crime numbers here on Snell Isle and surrounding areas. We know a stolen black SUV and a stolen white Audi were both used in the commission of some of this week’s Snell crime (other neighborhoods also), but the police have recovered BOTH of those stolen vehicles. To be certain, the thugs are now in other stolen vehicles! One for sure is a Black Audi 4-door SQ5 with Mo. Tag DR2M8C. Sadly, this thug has a repertoire of stolen vehicles, all high-end, to do his/their dirty work. Please be on the lookout!

If our hunch is correct, and this thug is behind our increase in crime, please consider this ALERT a serious warning to LOCK UP, TAKE YOUR KEYS & VALUABLES & KEEP THOSE GARAGE DOORS DOWN…without exception. Otherwise, get your insurance company’s information handy as you’ll be calling them to file a loss claim!

  • Be smart!
  • Stay Alert to your Surroundings!
  • If you see something, say something!
  • We are only as good as our weakest link…and don’t let that be YOU!

Please Be Alert - Petty Thefts in Monterey - Almedo area on Snell Isle

Please Be Alert – Petty Thefts in Monterey/Almedo area

The Monterey/Almedo area has had a number of petty thefts recently - bikes stolen, attempted breaking and entering, stolen iPad, rummaging through cars, suspicious “lookers”, etc. After the theft of an iPad from an UNLOCKED work truck on Wednesday, Feb 6, St Pete Police said there seems to be a ring in our area. They said the head of the ring just got out of jail and all of the crime around our area started up again.

Here is a description on the vehicle - a stolen Black Infinity with a yellow Alabama tag 29 DJ 866. A description of the occupants is that they are younger black males.

Call the police if a situation simply feels suspicious! Our officers are there to protect and to serve and we help them tremendously with our eyes and ears! WHEN YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING - Call SPPD at 727-893-7780! Please put that number in your Favorites on your cell phone.

As long as they can find our weakest link with unlocked house and car doors and opened garage doors…THEY WILL BE BACK! So please, please observe every safety precaution and LOCK UP, every single time! Don’t give these thugs a chance to ruin your day! They’ve already ruined a few of our neighbors days!

Donations for Coast Guard Families - Convenient Snell Isle Drop-off Site

Donations for Coast Guard Families Convenient Snell Isle Drop-Off Site

Our friends at St. THOMAS EPISCOPAL CHURCH (1200 Snell Isle Blvd) have made it very convenient for you to drop off any non-perishable or household supplies you’d like to donate to our US COAST GUARD families. As you know, due to the partial government shut-down, Coast Guard personnel, who so diligently protect our waters and borders, are not being paid!

For many Coast Guard families this is their only income. The Sun Coast is covered by approximately 670 active duty personnel. City of St. Petersburg is home to one of the USCG largest commands with approximately 220 active duty personnel. Below is a suggested list of items that could help during these difficult times:

  • Non-perishable food items: Snacks for kid’s lunchboxes, coffee, protein bars, health snacks
  • Cleaning Items: paper towels, dish soap, hand soap, bathroom and kitchen cleaning products, laundry detergent
  • Toiletry items: toilet paper, feminine products, toothbrushes/toothpaste for adults and children, body soap, shampoo, conditioner
  • Baby items: diapers (all sizes) pull-ups (all sizes for both girl and boy) baby wipes

The collection box is located inside the wrought iron gate (open from 8:30AM - 3PM, M-F) on the Snell Isle Blvd side of the Church. Turn off Snell Isle Blvd at the Canterbury School sign and once you are facing the buildings, walk to the gate on your right and the collection box is just inside those gates. Many neighborhoods and the City of St Pete are all offering drop-boxes for this worthy cause. We thank St. Thomas Episcopal Church for allowing us on Snell Isle to donate at their location.

You may also donate directly to the Coast Guard at their website:
