Clearwater police are looking for these two suspects in connection to a vehicle burglary and fraudulent credit card use.
Man arrested for battery on officer
CLEARWATER – A Clearwater man was released from St. Anthony’s Hospital on Feb. 10 and subsequently arrested by Clearwater police for two counts of aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer.

On Dec. 23, patrol officers were dispatched to Mark Wayne Bill’s residence for a welfare check after family members called and expressed concern for his state of mind. Shortly after officers arrived, Bill, 56, exited the residence armed with a rifle and was shot by officers. He is being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $40,000 bond.

Cars burglarized at stadium
CLEARWATER – Clearwater police report that three vehicles were burglarized in the west parking lot of Jack Russell Stadium around 7:50 p.m. Feb. 8 during a high school baseball game. Items taken include wallets, money and a cell phone. Police remind the public that thieves target places where people may leave valuables in the car for convenience. Such places include stadiums, fitness centers, daycares and churches.

Suspects wanted for credit fraud
