In both residential burglaries, the homeowners were asleep within the residence at the time. Purses, cash, and other personal property were taken and some items were recovered nearby. District IV detectives worked with Manatee County Sheriff's Office to develop investigative leads. During the investigation, detectives were able to develop probable cause to arrest Alex Williams for one of the residential burglaries based on evidence located at the scene. Williams was taken into custody without incident and admitted to the two residential and six vehicle burglaries during a Post Miranda interview. Williams is also suspected of committing multiple residential and vehicle burglaries within Manatee County.
