The Panama City Police Department announces the arrest of Daniel Norona, 24 years of age, of Panama City. Norona is being charged with Bribery of a Law Enforcement Officer and Conspiracy to Commit Burglary.
He was arrested on the evening of January 14, 2014, at his residence. The arrest stems from an investigation launched after Norona offered to pay a Panama City Police officer to help him burglarize an area pawn business. At the time, the police officer was not acting in an undercover capacity and Norona was fully aware of his status as a police officer. Upon arrest, Norona was brought to the Panama City Police Department for questioning and then transported to the Bay County Jail. Today, Norona was seen by a local judge for first appearance.
This incident remains under investigation. If you have any information in reference to this case, please contact Sergeant Mike Brewer at the Panama City Police Department, 850-872-3100, or you can report your tips anonymously to CrimeStoppers at 850-785-TIPS.
