BRADENTON, Fla. — Fueled by drug addiction and the need for money, three men announced themselves as Manatee County Sheriff's deputies, handcuffed a 19-year-old they say is a drug dealer and robbed him, Bradenton Police said.
Evan Zappola, of the 200 block of 67th Street in Holmes Beach, was arrested Friday and faces one count of robbery with a firearm and one count of falsely impersonating a law enforcement officer, according to Det. James Curulla.
