Pawned Taser Gets Some Attention ...

Tampa, Florida — Two men are under arrest over a pawned taser a deputy lost during a foot-chase earlier this month.

Marc A. Manz, 29, manager of Bay Area Pawn & Jewelry, was charged with knowingly accepting stolen property, and Danny Warren Davis, 43, of Lutz was charged with grand theft, dealing in stolen property and felon in possession of an electronic weapon.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's office said a deputy lost his taser and holster during a foot pursuit June 12th. Davis found it and brought it to a pawn shop on Nebraska Avenue, where manager Manz gave him $10 for it, investigators said.

"Manz did not complete a Florida Pawnbroker Form as required per Florida Law nor did he report the transaction to Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office which is also required by Florida law," the sheriff's office said in a statement.

Investigators said Manz called the manufacturer of the Taser and verified it was the property of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. On three separate ocasions, a sheriff's office detective was in Manz' pawn shop and Manz never mentioned the recovery of a Taser, they said.

Davis was arrested last Monday. Deputies picked up Manz today.

From what I understand Davis was homeless and scared of the police and turned it in, not Pawned it, and Manz was out of the store for several days due to a death in his family and when Detectives called him he met with them right away and turned it in! What happened to the deputy that "LOST" his taser out of a holster? "NOTHING" Good weapon retention!!! Sounds like the deputy's need to be better trained on weapon retention!! Considering a Taser is the same size as his REAL GUN!! Does he still have his Duty weapon or did he LOSE that too?!?! Sounds like the real idiot is a Deputy that Loses a Weapon unknowingly and leaves the scene with a Weapon laying around because I wouldn't have left the area until I found mine!
