Motorcycle theft suspect still sought

Larry Eugene Stone

Gainesville police continue to look for a man wanted in connection with a series of motorcycle thefts near the Southwest 20th Avenue area.  Officers have been looking for Larry Eugene Stone, 41, since November, when he was identified as one of the people possibly involved in a series of Alachua County thefts.

Another man, Daniel Roane, Gainesville, admitted to stealing eight motorcycles, and faces 24 counts of grand theft auto, dealing in stolen property and conspiracy to commit grand theft auto, according to a Gainesville Police Department news release.

Stone is wanted on allegations of grand theft auto, conspiracy and dealing in stolen property.  Police spokesman Ben Tobias said Stone was recently seen in the Haile Plantation area.  Stone is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs about 235 pounds.  Detectives said he may be armed. If he is seen, call Gainesville Police Department at 352-393-7665.

Online Auction Halted For Gun Used To Kill Trayvon Martin

The pistol that former Florida neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman used to kill Trayvon Martin was removed from the GunBroker.com website Thursday, minutes after the auction was to begin. Zimmerman had told an Orlando TV station that the 9 mm Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol was returned to him by the U.S. Justice Department, which took it after he was acquitted in Martin's 2012 shooting death. It was not immediately clear why the website took down the listing.
