VIDEO – Suspects Lead Deputies on Foot Pursuit, Witness Say Suspect Told her to “Be Quiet”
SPRING HILL – A tense few minutes for residents living on Glade Road yesterday, after two men led deputies on a foot pursuit, zig zagging between homes and frightening neighbors.
According to officials, 25-Marc Steven Haslam stole his ex-girlfriend’s cell phone, credit cards, from her home on Meadow Lark Lane, earlier Sunday. During the investigation, Haslam used the victim’s card to draw out $200 cash from the Speedway on Deltona Blvd. Later that evening, Haslam returned to the Speedway but had already been identified by surveillance video. Before deputies could capture him, he fled on foot into a nearby neighborhood.
While deputies were in pursuit of Haslam they learned that a possible strong-arm robbery had occurred behind the speedway by a suspect matching Haslam’s description and second suspect, later identified as 27-year-old Eric Michael Mullady.
K-9 arrived on the scene and both suspects were eventually taken into custody without further incident.
It was later determined that Mullady was not involved in the alleged robbery but he was charged with prowling and loitering.
Haslam is charged with Grand Theft, Larceny, Fraudulent use of a credit card, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
RNRF recorded the capture on video and while Haslam was being escorted to a patrol, he stated, “Hey Tom Lemons, I knew you’d make it… (Inaudible) …If I smiled for my mugshot.”
One neighbor, “Tyra” said she saw a deputy standing in her yard and when she looked down at her front porch she saw one of the suspects motion to her and state, “be quiet.” Trya was so scared that she called a neighbor for help who immediately ran to her aid. By that time the suspect was in custody.
