- Man in stolen Honda took off.
- Officers were able to catch up to him after he crashed into an Alligator
Calvin Rodriguez, of St. Lucie County, was allegedly driving a stolen Honda Civic when he was spotted by officers. he fled when they pursued him, and he was able to escape, albeit temporarily. Officers located the car after it hit an Alligator, then crashed into the median, and were able to trace Rodriguez to the car. He is presumably facing multiple felonies for grand theft auto, high speed fleeing, etc.
Folks from outside of the state must hear these stories and think we are just filthy with Alligators. You watch Gator Boys, and it seems like there are crocodilians everywhere. I’d like to say they are not that common, but tell that to the car thief that got eaten when trying to flee a couple years ago… Gators, better than car alarms for 25 years.
