MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. -- A Bradenton man has been accused of stealing money from his neighbor during an argument over the sale of Valium pills.

According to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, the victim claims that on Tuesday afternoon she went to her neighbor's home across the street in the Floridana mobile home community after he claimed to have some Valium to sell.

The victim says she had $2,000 in her lap when she became suspicious of the pills and told the neighbor that she was not buying them.  The neighbor, identified as 54-year-old Stephen Young, reportedly grabbed the cash, pushed the victim down, then fled the scene in his truck.

Deputies were unable to locate Young.
