A Hobe Sound man who told deputies he was homeless was charged with robbing a man who just withdrew money from an ATM machine. The incident happened Sunday. The suspect, 23-year old Bradley Andrew Baum, admitted to approaching the victim and attacking him, shortly after the man withdrew funds from the Wells Fargo ATM in Jensen Beach. The suspect fled in a vehicle, but the victim was able to identify that car. A short time later, deputies located the car and the suspect, who was sitting in a park with his girlfriend. Baum was positively identified as the person who robbed the victim. Bradley Baum has a history of this type of violent crime. He was recently released from jail for a similar incident last year. He was charged with Robbery by Sudden Snatching for this latest crime. He remains at the Martin County Jail.


Detectives are investigating three residential burglaries that occurred to homes in the Loblolly Community in Hobe Sound. The crimes occurred sometime Saturday evening to unoccupied homes along Golfhouse Drive. Thieves smashed windows to make entry. Cash and personal items were taken from at least one of the homes. Nothing was removed from the second home. Despite smashing the window, burglars did not enter into the third home. It was possible something alarmed the thieves, so they took off before getting inside. Detectives are examining exterior home security camera footage, which captured infrared images of the suspects. 

An Indiantown woman received minor injuries after the trash pile she was burning got out of control, nearly spreading to a near-by barn. It happened on the 11000 block of Fox Brown Road on Sunday. Martin County Fire Rescue was able to completely extinguish the fire before it spread. The victim was taken to the hospital where she was treated for minor burns.
