DRAMATIC VIDEO – Shoplifters Crash into Parked Vehicle While Attempting to Flee
BROOKSVILLE – Around 1:00 p.m. this afternoon, loss prevention employees at the Walmart on Cortez Blvd alerted authorities of a possible theft in progress.
According to sources, the suspect was known to loss prevention employees as a repeat offender and that he was involved in several previous thefts at their store.
By complete coincidence, I [Tom Lemons, RNRF] arrived on scene and parked next to the suspect’s vehicle, just as he was unloading stolen merchandise into a minivan. I immediately grabbed my camera and began filming the suspect and his accomplice, a female driver, as they backed out of their parking spot. The driver continued backing up to avoid being filmed and subsequently crashed into a parked pickup truck. I continued filming as the minivan sped away towards Cortez Blvd.
Thanks to the video, I was able to provide a vehicle tag number to deputies who then responded to suspect’s alleged residence, located at 8080 Greenbriar Court. Unfortunately, deputies were unable to make contact with the suspects or locate their vehicle at the residence.
