UPDATE BOLO: Second kidnapper is still on the run in Sarasota Fl, he is to be considered armed and dangerous, the gun used in kidnapping the man from the parking lot of the Sarasota Kennel Club was not recovered when cops arrested dirtbag thug Terrick Bell.
SARASOTA - After a night at the Sarasota Kennel Club, a man was robbed and then kidnapped as he heads to his car. Surveillance video has already led to the arrest of one of the two kidnappers, and detectives hope somebody will recognize the second one. 18-year-old Terrick Bell is in the Sarasota County Jail, charged with kidnapping and armed robbery. But police still haven't identified his accomplice.
They say it started February 20th in the parking lot of the Sarasota Kennel Club on University Parkway. "He was in the poker room, decided to leave between 11 pm and midnight, went out to his car, two black males accosted him with a handgun and told him to lie on the ground,” says Capt. Wade McVay with Sarasota Police.
The kidnappers took the man's wallet and cell phone and forced him into his car in the driver’s seat. They got in and made the victim drive to the Wells Fargo Bank at University Parkway and Lockwood Ridge Road and take $300 out of the ATM machine. Then they tried and failed to take money out of several other branches.
At a Walmart, they charged $1,000 on his debit card. Then at Royal Palm Avenue and 52nd Street in Sarasota, the two got out of the car and let the victim drive away. If you recognize the man in the top two photos above, call Detective Mike Jackson of the Sarasota Police Department at 954-7096.
Newtown Black Thugs Branch Out Kidnap and Rob Man From Sarasota Kennel Club, Terrick Bell 18 Arrested, Looks Like More Gang Activity. Sarasota cops have said in the past that they had a handle on Newtown thugs and they really did not think that all the murders and robberies through all of 2011 and now into 2012 are not “gang related”, think again. Eighteen year old Terrick Bell gave an address of 1700 24th St SARASOTA, FL 34234 which is right in the center of Newtown, see map CLICK HERE.
I’m sure all the vactioners and snowbirds who frequent the Dog Track at the Sarasota Kennel Club, 5400 Bradenton Rd Sarasota, feel safe knowing that muggers are watching for the winners and robbing them in the parking lot, where the hell is security?
One of Terrick C. Bell’s prior arrests was “POSSESSION OF COCAINE WITH INTENT TO SELL OR DELIVER WITHIN 1000 FT OF PUBLIC HOUSING FACILITY“, seems to coincide with gang activity to me, and oh yeah, Terrick likes to fight with the cops, Bell is supposed to go to Trial on the kidnapping charge in November, see Sarasota County Court records CLICK HERE.
