Dramatic Video Shows Alleged Truck Thief Taken Down by Sheriff’s Deputies

SPRING HILL – Tense moments for Hernando County Sheriff’s Deputies last night, after a known-car thief was found sitting in a stolen pickup truck outside a local gas station.

RNRF received information that 30-year-old Jeffrey Fatkin of Spring Hill was wanted out of Pasco County for stealing a blue Ford F-250. Investigators out of Pasco County contacted Hernando County, after they pinged the suspect’s cell phone and determined that he was at the Speedway Gas Station located at 4707 Commercial Way.

Fatkin initially refused to cooperate with deputies as they repeatedly yelled at him to step out of the truck and lie on the ground. Eventually, Fatkin complied and was taken into custody without further incident. Fatkin is charged with vehicle theft, driving under the influence and resisting arrest. He remains behind bars on a $4,000 bond.

Fatkin has a long history of arrests in Pasco County, including several charges for vehicle theft, battery and drug offenses.

  • Most of the time it falls back to the State Attorneys office who truly DO pick and choose which case they want to prosecute and which ones they will throw out. They are the ones to really blame.

    • Come on they are lawyers, if they win cases they get the big pay day in private practice, they could really care less about who they let out

  • After watching this a couple times, this idiot is very lucky they didn’t fill him full of lead and make him look like a pinata! looking at where he was when 1st approached, his demeanor, body language,hesitation, NOT SHOWING HIS FREAKING HANDS!, slow to move,etc.etc. very lucky! you can tell the officers were on edge and I can’t / don’t blame them! every darn day it seems someone shooting at / trying to kill police officers and it’s got to stop! The L.E.O.’S in this country are not all bad and we must support them!

  • WHAT! Only $4,000 Bail? That means $400. Get a him out of jail and back on the streets. He is a repeat offender. Our judicial,system SUCKS! Go commit a felony, you’ll be back, on the street in hours to continue your mission. CHRIST SAKES!

    Friday, 2 March 2018, 10:42 am
    • I agree this is BS. 4000.00 (400.00) to be back out causing mayhem. What the hell is wrong with Hernando county. It seems the felons just keep being released with no stiff penalties. Bet you take someone to jail that has a job they will be paying out the ass. This is so wrong.

  • Multiple arrests and only $4,000 bail just goes to show why they keep doing the stuff they do. Another low life and they’ll keep on and keep on.

    Thursday, 1 March 2018, 3:00 pm
    • Just what I was thinking. Not much consequences and they are out of jail to repeat their crimes. Ridiculous . These deputies put their lives on the line knowing these scumbags will be back out before the day is over.
