Lowndes County - Forty-three year old Seth Temple's crime spree ended with a crash on Pete Moss Road. "He lost control of the vehicle and the deputy ran him into the ditch," said Captain J. D. Yeager.
Saturday night, Temples allegedly broke into Vasu Discount Beverages on St. Augustine Road. He stole a significant amount of lottery tickets.
County deputies started patrolling other stores in the area, believing he might strike again. "One of our deputies came up on the store at Rocky Ford and Highway 84 and saw a broken window," said Yeager. "Then the suspect came running out, jumped in his truck and took off."
The deputy chased Temples down Highway 84 and onto Westside Road. When the road came to a dead end, Temples jumped out and started running. The deputy looked for him in the woods, but Temples had already found another way out.
"He figured out there was a vehicle nearby, so he stole a Dodge Durango and took off again," said Yeager.
Several hours later, another deputy spotted Temples at a storage center in Lake Park. Another chase ensued, this time down Highway 41 and onto Pete Moss Road. Temples lost control of the car and crashed into the ditch, then took off on foot. "They chased him about 100 yards into the woods, used a tazer gun to bring him down, and took him into custody," said Yeager.
Temples wasn't hurt in the crash. He's in the Lowndes County Jail charged with burglary, alluding an officer, and numerous traffic violations.
