Vigilant Citizen Alerts Deputies to Vehicle Burglaries

During the early morning hours of 12-19-18, a vigilant citizen contacted the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office to report four individuals stealing Christmas lights and committing vehicle burglaries in the Villages of Avalon.  District Two patrol deputies were dispatched to the area.

Upon arrival, deputies observed a black SUV leaving the subdivision at a high rate of speed.  As deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the SUV, the driver fled.  While in the process of fleeing from deputies, the driver went off the roadway, disabling the vehicle.

Deputies quickly took both occupants of the SUV into custody.

During this time, other deputies remained in The Villages of Avalon searching for the other vehicle involved in the crimes.  Deputies quickly located the vehicle, conducted a traffic stop, and took both occupants of the vehicle into custody.

District Two detectives and Forensics Specialists were called to the scene to continue the investigation.
