OnStar Disables Stolen Car, Deputies Arrest Two Juveniles without Incident

SPRING HILL – A pair of juvenile car thieves out of Citrus County are now in custody, thanks to the quick actions of Hernando County Sheriff’s Deputies and a little help with OnStar technology.

Around 3:45 p.m. this afternoon, Citrus County officials alerted Hernando County Sheriff’s Deputies of a stolen vehicle traveling westbound on Cortez Blvd. Citrus County relayed information to the exact location of a stolen gold Chevy Malibu, which by now was approaching Commercial Way. A Deputy observed the vehicle in the southbound turn lane and waited for backup to arrive in the area. Meanwhile, Citrus County advised that OnStar would be able to slow the vehicle to a stop, once a Deputy was behind it. And that’s exactly what happened next.

Around 4:00 p.m., the vehicle stopped at Commercial Way and Northcliffe Blvd, when OnStar disabled the vehicle. Deputies conducted a felony traffic stop and took a male and female juvenile into custody without incident.

There are no further details at this time.

  • Most police use 3-4 cars to block in a car one in front 2 on the sides and one in the rear. so the passengers cant escape. also they dont know if they are armed or were young or old. any suspect must be treated like they are armed and dangerous

  • Good God people, how ignorant can some of you be. No one knew exactly how many were in the vehicle. There could have been someone lying on the back floor with an AK47 just waiting to get pulled over by maybe 1 or 2 deputies. How do you think that might have ended. It does not matter how many deputies showed up or how many counties were involved or who got the pat on the back. The point is it ended without incident. The more police presence, the less chance the suspects will provoke confrontation. Use common sense. All law enforcement work together to get the job done.

  • Man so many of the comments I read here seem to take all positive credit away from our local leo..why? It’s comical how obvious some of you people are with that read maybe one story that might..have some basis in which to woof some negative criticism at cops around here and then everyone seems to run with that b.s. and paint every effort the man makes as overkill..or stupid..or almost criminal no cop groupie believe that..but have some respect at least..these cops have to deal with a lot of bad sh.t one is perfect..its hard to sift through all the dirt and come out unscathed with every decision and make all the politically correct moves..and still do things correctly. Look how often officers get shot or killed while working..most jobs aren’t like maybe just shut the heck up sometimes and keep ignorant b’s to yourselves ..u might need help from our local Leo one day ..

  • Surfadude- you definitely need a reality check. Sorry that the most stressful part of your workday is deciding whether to single or double bag the groceries, but there is a real world out there. Half of the people that post on here should do a ride along with a Deputy for a few hours so at least your comments wouldn’t be deemed ignorant. Maybe if you had a taste of what it is like, you would refrain from puking out garbage in a post. And to quote a great movie-
    “I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it.
    I would rather that you just said “thank you” and went on your way.”

  • You surfadude are a knucklehead! LE’s job is to arrest them and keep the public safe. Who cares how many cops were there? What if they came out of that car with guns blazing? Would you be whining about overkill then?

  • The praise should go to citrus county officers and on star technology. Citrus county did notifocation in timely manner with on star tracking notification and on star slowed and stopped the car. All hernando had to do is pull in behind and next to and take the kids out of the car. No pursuit, no resisting. By the way kids – NO BRAINS ON YOUR PART!! GOOD JOB “MOM AND DAD!!!” Please don’t have any more.

  • Oh lordy oh Lordy what Knuckleheads there are so many Knuckleheads in the world wow, anyway once again this is nothing personal against police officers as I know many in this County and most are all fine men and women but I can’t help but to think again as I’ve quoted on some other recent stories, Overkill Maybe I see at least three police vehicles if not more is that necessary for two punks in the stolen car that has been disabled yes the world is dangerous and I know these guys need their brothers and sisters to cover their backs but good Lord
