Suspect in ArchAngel robbery gets added arson charge

BY JENNIFER CABRERA

Alan Bruce Manning, 27, has a new charge of arson on top of the 36 felony charges he was already facing.

As part of a multi-county crime spree in November 2021, Manning and his two co-defendants, Wesley Addison and Alexandria Mihelic, allegedly burglarized Certified Hydraulics in Branford (Suwannee County) on November 26, and a work truck and tools were stolen. That vehicle was equipped with a GPS transponder, and the transponder recorded everywhere the truck went after it was stolen. The stolen truck was driven to the VyStar Credit Union in Lake Butler (Union County), where video showed two male subjects attempting to rob the ATM by first using pry bars and then attempting to break the machine open with a tow rope attached to the truck.

After leaving Lake Butler, the truck drove toward Gainesville and then stopped briefly near a church along SR 121, where discarded tools were reported by a citizen on November 26. The truck was then tracked to ArchAngel Gunsmithing and Outfitters in Newberry, where video surveillance showed the two subjects pulling the doors off that business with a rope tied to the stolen work truck, while armed with at least one handgun. Five AR-15-style rifles, valued over $8900, were stolen from ArchAngel. After leaving ArchAngel, the truck was driven to the area of SW 85th Avenue, where it was set on fire and completely destroyed.

The new sworn complaint reports that arson investigators believe that Manning lit his shirt on fire and put the burning shirt under the seat of the work truck, causing items inside the truck to ignite. The fire spread from the interior of the vehicle to the engine compartment and then to the exterior of the vehicle. The vehicle was valued at $25,000 and is considered a total loss.

Manning has been in custody since January 7 and is being held without bail.
