NEWS RELEASE 18-054
Nazario, Wilfred

The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office arrested a man for bringing a concealed firearm onto a school campus in Sarasota.

On Wednesday, Lakeview Elementary staff called Wilfred Nazario, DOB 05/15/59, to pick up his grandson following a dispute. When Nazario arrived, a witness saw him take a black firearm out of his vehicle and place it in his waistband before walking onto the campus. Deputies responded and spoke with Nazario who confirmed he was carrying a concealed firearm. Though Nazario has a valid concealed carry license, the law precludes citizens from carrying weapons at particular locations including on school campuses.  

Nazario is charged with one count of Possession of a Concealed Firearm on a School Campus. He was released Wednesday evening on $120 bond.
