Tuesday, March 7th, Deputy Jeckovich noticed a suspicious man acting erratically, then entering a vehicle at a Palm Coast gas station. Deputy Jeckovich followed the vehicle, and was able to determine the plates did not match the vehicle. He attempted to stop the vehicle but it fled. Deputy Jeckovich did not pursue the vehicle, but FCSO did witness the vehicle driving recklessly and getting on the northbound I-95 ramp.
Deputy Somers’ was able to position himself ahead of the vehicle and use his Stop Sticks on the ramp, which caused the vehicle’s tires to deflate rapidly.
Because of this, deputies were able to find the vehicle near the median of I-95 mile marker 290. A black man was observed exiting the vehicle with a backpack and running across the southbound lanes of I-95 into the residential area of Boulder Rock Dr. in Palm Coast. The vehicle was determined to be a stolen vehicle from Miami, Fl.
Deputies surrounded the area and used the K-9 Unit to locate the man. They also found two handguns in the grass near the location of the male suspect. They were also able to determine that the male suspect also burglarized a vehicle in the area during his attempt to evade law enforcement.
The man was identified as Timothy Montrell Logan. Logan was arrested and charged with Grand Theft of a Motor Vehicle, Fleeing to Elude, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Resisting an Officer without Violence, Burglary of an Unoccupied Conveyance, Petit Theft, and Driving with No Valid Driving License. He is being held on a $72,000 bond.
“Great job by all of the FCSO deputies and K-9 involved in taking this felon off the streets,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “Another dirtbag made the mistake of coming to Flagler County and running from our deputies so he went to the Green Roof Inn tired and with more charges. The only good decision this suspect made was to drop his guns and give up before he was apprehended.”
