Fugitives Captured After Hit and Run – Woman “Stands Her Ground”

SPRING HILL – Last night, dozens of law enforcement officers converged in the area of Spring Hill Drive, near Pinehurst Drive, an attempt to capture local career criminal and known gang member, 26-year-old Thomas Caron.

According to officials, around 8:30 p.m. the Florida Highway Patrol responded to a hit and run accident in front of a residence at the 6400 block of Spring Hill Drive. The driver of one vehicle, Thomas Caron, and his passenger, 27-year-old Samantha Perkins, fled the scene on foot, prior to the arrival of law enforcement. With knowledge of who they were pursuing, the Sheriff’s Office deployed a K9 unit and tracked the pair to the area of Galgano Lane and Garrison Street. While searching the immediate area, Deputy Joe Merando says he noticed a 2006 grey Ford Escape parked in the driveway of 8263 Galgano Lane, with the couple hiding inside. Caron and Perkins were taken into custody without further incident and transported to the Hernando County Jail.

Prior to their capture, the couple tried to enter a residence on Omaha Circle in an attempt to hide from Law Enforcement. According to Tina Cash, while standing in her doorway she noticed Caron and Perkins running towards her apartment. Cash says Perkin’s face was bloody and Caron appeared to be “on something” when they screamed “We need a place to hide!” Cash says she stood her ground at the doorway and yelled at them to leave, while calling 911. Cash was home alone at the time, with young toddlers inside the apartment.

Caron faces charges of Burglary and Resisting Arrest, in addition to three felony warrants and criminal traffic violations, related to the vehicle accident. Caron remains behind bars, held without bond.

Caron has been in and out of Prison since 2007, and was just released in July, after serving less than 4 months of a 5-year-sentence on numerous drug and theft charges.

Samantha Perkins is charged with Trespassing and for an unrelated warrant for Battery out of Hernando County. Perkins remains behind bars, held without bond.

  • Proud Veteran, most of the time I agree with your comments, I can tell you it was not like this until the influx of northerners. Crime will always increase with population. Most of these criminals moved here following their families

  • Tony, you are so right. When I moved here Spring Hill was a nice quiet town, now, thanks to all the low lives and baby daddy’s of Tiffany’s who are probably still in jail, this town has become a haven for crime. Time to take all the trash out. The HCSO is doing a great job of this however, it is the judges that are responsible for putting them back on the streets. I say send all this scum to Syria and set them free over there. Maybe they can be rehabilitated over there! For those who keep making remarks about the northerners is New York, New Jersey, etc, most of the crime here is most likely by the southern crackers not by the northerners.

  • Oh Gina, Gina, Gina, yes they are both model citizens. Yes let’s get them help….Are you NUTS! As flow wilshire229, that was about the most ignorant uneducated remark I have ever heard.How about from now on we have all these SCUM BAGS who get released, let them come live with you and you can rehabilitate them yourself.

  • Those two running to a mom’s front door, Halloween come lately:) These two gumdrops aren’t representative of most of the good hard working family oriented people in this community. Many of your comments say that this town is through and ruined. unfortunately things like going to work or going to school or going shopping or going out with your family on vacation aren’t very interesting and newsworthy. So on this day of giving thanks let’s thank these two bandits and Tom for bringing us a topic of discussion. Happy Thanksgiving!

  • it would be nice if you talked to all the people that came face to face with these people before they even went to her they where at my house in my yard when I was walking my dogs with my 3year old grandson and my son was face to face with guy when she was in a bush in my yard hiding

  • Blame Rick Scott for his early release from prison. He has not adequately funded that system so they have to let him go early due to the overcrowding. Republicans don’t really care about public safety. Especially if it costs a bunch of money. You get what you VOTE FOR Spring Hill people.

  • They are two pos. I called the sheriffs dept numerous times with his whereabouts this last month for his warrents and nothing. They have been on a robbing spree the last 2 weeks besides being on a meth binge. They are past the point of rehab. Her mother is a drug addict and dont care her brother is a meth head that Tom did a story on not to long ago for getting arrested for misuse of 911. Its sad but they cant be helped.

  • I was actually the one who called the cops when the accident happened on shd and pinehurst. I was on piper and heard brakes screeching for a few long seconds and immediately knew what was about to happen. Then all you heard was im guessing the male yelling to bolt.

  • I believe that at one time Spring Hill was a nice place to settle down but look what it’s turned into, Wall to Wall Crime, What a shame for the normal people that live here and this is only the crime that’s reported here and not the crime that’s we don’t hear about.

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 7:44 pm
  • there is only 1 way you get out after 4 months of a 5 year sentence. You give something up. Or you give SOMEONE up. Someone they want more than you.

  • I am also “discusted” there are not enough drug treatment facilities here. not day clinics, facilities.

    I am not surprised these two are together getting in trouble like that. Anyone know where Samanthas brother tyler perkins is? He probably holding their drugs for them. Ridiculous

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 1:10 pm
  • Gina marie how bout we move them into your house and you can pay for their treatments? No oh why not? The sad part is how the hell did he only do 4months of a 5year sentence? If he was in longer he could’ve taken advantage of the NA program in jail. Why is it the taxpayers burden to get these drug addicts help. Help yourself or don’t idgaf! But serving your time will help you to get sober!

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 1:05 pm
  • Thank goodness for Tom. I’ve never seen people praise someone for posting police blogs. Do you really feel safer? Now you know, so what are you doing differently?

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 12:55 pm
  • Hmmm no chopper called out for this ..but it was for the tire slasher…hmmmm

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 12:19 pm
  • Exactly Ruth 4 months on 5 years…outrageous! A career criminal yet. What makes it truly outrageous is the fact that the jail is full of people who get what they call 11-29 eleven months twenty nine days for the minor crime of shoplifting..possessing one joint and probably for no lights on your bike. So why such a deal for this guy?

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 12:17 pm
  • I personally know the mother who stood her ground. Tina is an awesome mother and person and would do anything to protect her children. I thank God that Tina and her children are okay. Thanks for sharing this story Tom.

  • My hat is off to the deputies of Hernando county. I just can’t believe they don’t shoot more dirt bags than they do.

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:49 am
  • They are very lucky they didnt try to run into my house! I REALLY would have stood my ground with a 45! This revolving door of the Hernando jail needs to stop!!! Seriously?!?!? 4 months of 5 yr sentence?????

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:44 am
  • That POS Caron PARALYZED my Nephew 8 years ago while he (Caron) was drunk driving. He had no valid drivers license, no car insurance and a fake license plate on his car. He did less than 5 years in jail and the Hernando County State Attorney NEVER even suspend his drivers license. That POS is still out committing crimes and my nephew is a QUADRIPLEGIC. Wake up Hernando County put Caron in prison for LIFE!

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:43 am
    • We need strong judges that will do this! It is sad when law enforcement throws them in jail for a judge to let them leave after a short time! Statistically knowing that they will be back soon!

      Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 1:45 pm
  • The next time you see one of our creepy commissioners challenging Sheriff Al, I hope he pulls out the arrest records for his department and dares Nick to produce something equivalent.

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:38 am
    • You’re right Woody,
      Nick only caught ONE Crack Whore!

  • Can someone tell me who from spring hill recruits these idiots that we see here on rnrf, they do a extremely good job

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:33 am
  • Instead of constantly just throwing these people in jail how about getting them help with their drug problems ? I mean obviously it hasn’t worked out just throwing them behind bars if nothing changed!!! It makes no sense . Throw them in jail and prison for a drug problem only to then learn more about how to be a better criminal?? Help them !! Hernando county sheriffs department is a joke for real ! They don’t care about people or trying to get them the help they need . Drug court in Hernando is an amazing program how bout sending them into an in house facility .. But no it’s cheaper for the county just to put them behind bars . Sad but so true !

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:29 am
    • He needs to stay in jail! Nobody can help my Nephew that this POS PARALYZED. If this POS parlayed someone in your family you wouldn’t want them to get drug therapy. That is a joke to even consider! He won’t get drugs in PRISON where he belongs!

      Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:56 am
    • you can try to get people off drugs all you want but if they do not want the help it is a waste of money and time

      Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 12:15 pm
    • What?! They are not throwing them in jail for a “drug problem” For every bad thing someone does, they have a reason and why should we (tax payers) (not county) pay for them to go to rehab, they make their own choices to do drugs!

      Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 1:42 pm
      • Gina Marie,
        I have a GREAT IDEA, how about YOU take them into YOUR HOME & REHABILITATE THEM??, after all, they only need

        Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 4:27 pm

          Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 4:29 pm
    • Gina Marie,
      I can guarantee that him getting out after only 4 months included some sort of supervision, Drug Court, AA. NA., That he swore he would go to for help when he got out. Lying through his teeth the whole time. If he won’t use the tools that he was given , you can’t make him. If he wants help he can get it in PRISON..

      Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 7:00 pm
  • The problem is these 2 will be back out on our streets soon. Can they be rehabilitated? The guy can’t he is to far gone to ever be a member of this society. The young lady needs extensive long term inpatient rehab and I am sure some mental help. It is very sad to see they have chosen a road that is a dead end.

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:24 am
  • Wow, they are in big trouble now, I bet he will spend six months in jail for this. The cops did there job well, let’s see if a judge can do his/hers and put these two creeps away.

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:23 am
  • I agree Tom that’s more than standing your ground that takes £alls to do what she did good story tom….

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:23 am
  • Out after serving less than 4 months of a 5-year-sentence on numerous drug and theft charges…They system is joke if you only get 4 months for a 5 year term…With a system like that no wonder you see so much revolving door criminals in Hernando.

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:21 am
    • You are 100% right!

      Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:57 am
  • Yes good story Tom. NOW if the law would send him back to finish that sentence … really , 4 mos. out of 5 yrs!!!!!!!!! 2 more POS off the street …. for now..

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:20 am
    • yet they put people in jail for being late on child support and take their DL when their means of making money and indeed paying child support is tied to their driving privilege (and yes the person i am talking about has indeed paid for almost 12 years)…. and this pos walks after 4 months… nice system. Priorities in the cuntry are fu..ed!

      Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 8:44 pm
  • Tom,good story as usual! Thank God the mother and her children are ok, yes I am sure she was scared to death but most mothers will do anything to protect their children and she did very well. Dangerous times and dangerous people out there Hope they are locked away for a very long time, forever would be good. Thanks Tom, keep up the good work.?

    Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 11:17 am
    • I can’t believe he got out so soon on a 5 year sentence……and we wonder why we’re always having to watch ourselves these days.

      Wednesday, 25 November 2015, 7:34 pm
  • Nice clickbait.. didn’t know “Stands her Ground” meant standing in the doorway and saying go away, guess you need your page views huh?
