St. Augustine, FL - St. Johns County deputies call off the active search for the person responsible for a multi-car crash Wednesday night.
The Sheriff’s Office tells us a young man stole a car and crashed in to several cars at the Whispering Pines Apartments in St. Augustine. A deputy caught a look at the suspect, providing a general description of young black male, 5’6”, 150 lbs.
Police searched for several hours last night for the suspect. We’re now told they have pursued all the leads currently available, and are no longer actively searching.
Commander Chuck Mulligan says a stolen car seems like a very significant incident, however they’ve seen an unfortunate rise in the number of cars stolen for joy rides.
