SPRING HILL – After two-weeks of dipping and dodging, Sheriff Deputies finally caught up with a suspect who fled from them on several occasions, and RNRF was there to capture video of the dramatic takedown (CLICK HERE TO WATCH VIDEO) (SECOND VIDEO).
According to reports, on December 2nd a verbal dispute took place between a father and daughter over her acquaintance with what he referred to as a “drug dealer.” Deputies responded to the Walmart on Commercial Way where they made contact with the father, John Killory. During the investigation Deputies learned that Killory had a verbal altercation with the driver of a white Nissan pickup truck and that he believed the tag was stolen, and did not belong to the driver.
While talking to John and his daughter, Deputy Alex Covey observed the pickup driving through the parking lot. He attempted to stop the vehicle but the driver sped off at a high rate of speed northbound on Commercial Way. Dep. Covey terminated the pursuit at Toucan Trail and returned to Walmart.
Over the next two weeks Deputies spotted the pickup driving throughout Spring Hill and attempted several times to intercept vehicle. Despite their efforts Deputies were unable to stop the vehicle or apprehend the suspect who at this point had not been positively identified. But that all changed last night when deputies caught up with the pickup in the area Northcliffe Blvd and Mariner Blvd. This time deputies were prepared and used at least one unmarked car to follow the pickup, when as expected, the driver fled during another traffic stop.
The suspect, who by now had been identified as 21-year-old Anthony Raymond Cino, fled north on Mariner Blvd, east on Elgin Blvd, and then parked at the Circle K at the intersection of Barclay Ave. After a short time Cino left the parking lot, heading west on Elgin Blvd. The Sheriff’s Office Air Unit kept eyes on the vehicle while a Patrol Deputy deployed spike strips in the vehicle’s path. Cino tried to avoid the spike strips and drove over the median into the eastbound lanes. Cino ditched the pickup truck at the north entrance to Pristine Place and fled on foot.
After a short foot pursuit back and forth across Elgin Blvd, Deputies tacked Cino in front of Challenger K-8.
Cino was transported to the Hernando County Jail and charged with 3-counts of fleeing to elude, resisting arrest, and driving on a suspended license. It is not known at this time if additional charges may be filed against Cino.
Cino remains behind bars, held on a $7,000 bond.
