Not your ordinary dumb crook story from Florida.
JENSEN BEACH — Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man accused of fraudulently using a credit card at a CVS before leading them on a manhunt this morning.
The store manager told a Martin County Sheriff’s deputy that the man, of Port St. Lucie, had used someone else’s credit card to buy a $50 phone card, according to an sheriff’s report.
When the deputy tried to arrest the man just before 2 a.m., he fled and ran east toward Linda Drive, the report states.
The deputy used a Taser, striking the man in the upper left part of his back, but the man kept running.
Did he wear a cape and have a big S on his shirt?
Deputies called the K-9 unit and the helicopter to search for him but did not find him.
All this for a man trying to get a $50 phone card. Who was the biggest loser, taxpayers or the man who got away? I vote for the former.
