Things got a little crazy in Hernando County over the weekend, but an officer with a drone dished out some high-tech justice.
It started at about 4 a.m. on Sunday, when a Hernando Sheriff’s deputy attempted to pull over a car that had been reported as stolen. According to Tampa FP, when the officer pulled over the car in the parking lot of a 7-11 in Spring Hill, the car suddenly sped off and attempted to elude them.
They succeeded, but were located shortly afterward when a resident called police to report a sighting of the couple and car. That’s when technology entered the equation, flying into the area where the suspects had been reported.
A deputy with a drone found the pair and the stolen vehicle quickly. At one point, the driver ran from the vehicle and attempted to get away from the scene.
The deputy used the drone to keep up with the man and alert other officers of the suspect’s whereabouts. Both suspects were taken into custody after a search.
32-year-old Keshawn Jones was charged with Grand Theft Auto, Eluding Law Enforcement and driving on a suspended license. Cynthia Richards, also 32, was charged with Grand Theft Auto.
Police found several stolen items in the vehicle, which added more charges against the pair.
